I had an idea a while ago, which I thought was a good one:
I wish there was some sort of trial period for apps. Maybe there could be a system where if you somehow ‘return’ the app within, say, 48 hours, you get a refund. By return I mean there’s some sort of prompt that acknowledges you’re deleting an app within 48 hours of first installing, and let’s you know a refund is available. This could even be optional, i.e. the developer decides whether to provide a refund or not.
I still think it’s good, and it looks like I’m not the only one.
Phill Ryu has a good set of suggestions for how Apple should address this. Being able to get a refund within a short window after first installing the app, for example.
Which makes me feel, for a second or two, that I was ahead of the whole internet by 487 days (according to Siri).
UPDATE: it’s 497 days; 12th not 22nd October 2010.
(Yes, I realise I wouldn’t be the only one who’s had this idea, but one can dream :)
