I didn\'t encourage piracy too.... but I think apps on AppStore should be try & then pay. because to many apps, doesn\'t reach what they are tell they do.... this isn\'t to much money, but after some wrong buys, some (to many) dismiss to buy any more else. a tag research will also welcomme. I write big apps, I allow to try and then buy .... but I \'m tired to have to pay some buck and try to many apps before I\'ve the right app ( that I need). I \'ve misspend near 200 euros before I\'ve on my iphone

As both a developer and a consumer, I think this is overall a good thing. I\'ve pirated a bunch of apps, but never once have I not ended up paying for an app that I thought was worth keeping. If you like an app, you\'ll pay for it because they\'re cheap and you\'ll always want the latest version, along with ease of upgrading or restoring. I know it sounds like making excuses, but really I\'ve bought far more apps because of the ability to try-before-buy ability.

GREAT Idea!..... Love it, I\'d say YES and Pass software myself. REASON BEING: I have used Hacked Software, to test and see if will work for me, or lives up to what it said. If so, Then I Do purchase it. If NOT, it gets deleted. Simple.. It\'s Hard to return an APP to the Apple Store.... KUDOS for doing this! Great way to test it before you Buy it! At lest give it a quick look..
