Re: Easy access? on iOS there's...

Yes both Android and IOS have controls but I think a lot of them were added after Apple got a good kicking for living off the avails of scam apps. My old iPod touch only had a small subset of the stuff you list and they made it real easy to setup an account linked to a credit card and everything wide open by default. You could setup an account without a credit card but is was a bit like setting up Windows 8 without a microsoft account.

As for Google, the playstore gift cards have been available in Canada for about half a year, and have only matched the wide availability of iTunes cards for a few months.
