Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

No more option to keep Tap Zoo. It will take you to Tap Zoo2 whether you like it or not.

I have lost my tap zoo. The application kept on directing me to Tap Zoo 2 saying that Tap Zoo is old. I kept on cancelling the offer for Tap Zoo 2. When I turned it on yesterday morning, there was no more choice, it just diverted me to Tap Zoo 2. And all the money I have spent on it and all the coins I have accumulated have now disappeared. I want it back. I also play Tap Zoo2 but I want the original back.

$99.00 Unauthorized charge to my Credit Card! No thanks Tap ZOO!

Problem is it will charge you for coins or stars with out you actually buying them. I got a call from my credit card company for a $99.00 charge from pocket gems. I did not authorize this. Then I was playing it, and all of a sudden it says "thanks for the purchase" and it did it again. That's a lot of money for a free game and now I am trying to figure out if it tried to charge me again! Someone in another post stated that it asks permission before authorizing the charge...IT DID NOT!

Too much consumerism
