Freemium game apps are the bane of parents and careless gamers everywhere — what seems to be “free” can quickly rack up a sizable bill through in-app transactions for additional items and content.

Dear Lifehacker, I’m still using a dumbphone — I love it because if it’s dropped/lost/cracked/whatever then ‘meh’. I love not having to react like my heart’s been cut out of my chest, as my friends do when their ‘precious’ is harmed or lost. But am I going to eventually be left behind if I don’t keep up? More bluntly: Will I become my parents?
