    I wonder how many complaints come in from people that buy apps and not actually like them.. do they allow them to get a credit or do they just tell them to bad.......

    Well I think their strategy here is amazing because they make developers create free Lite versions which are full fledged version of the app.
    The dev can decide to exclude 19 levels out of 20 for the lite version as long as the app has all the same features as the full one.
    Great way to let users try the apps without any limitations aka "time trials" etc...
    And the developers can definitely get people hooked if their apps are good !

    Now you do But not ALL developers have to make a Lite version.
    But the ones that wanted to make trials, can make a Lite version if they want to.

    ok hold on you say lite verison but wouldn't that be a trial version anyway you can play one or 2 levels out of 20 and still do all the things of a full verison but you can only play 1 or 2 levels. Sorry but in my dictionary that's a trial version. If you have a PS3 or a 360 they do the same thing. you can play a little bit and still use everything in the game. Instead of trials there called Demos.

    the wording is different but still all the same meaning. But that my opinion.
