In-App Payments In Free Apps

Posted in iphone on October 17th, 2009 by Abhishek Balaria – Comments Off

Apple yesterday announced that they are now allowing even the free apps the ability to charge within the application. This is an interesting development and should fix a major hole in the application discovery process. Finally the app developers can truly allow try before buy. The Lite and Full version method used by most developers so far was a good workaround but this is so much better.

It does, however, bring some interesting issues with it. How are the users going to differentiate a completely free app without in-app payments with the one which charges later? But I am sure the market will find a way.
