Apple may be looking to launch app rentals according to strings found in the latest iTunes beta.

Tech Erra found the following references to rentals in iTunes 10.5 beta 9.

"510.035" = "Do you want to start playing the app "%S"?";
"510.036" = "Apps are automatically removed from your iTunes library at the end of the rental period.";
"510.037" = "This app will be deleted from your computer.";
"510.038" = "These apps will be deleted from your computer.";

The strings suggest you will be able to download an app for a limited period of time after which it will be deleted from your computer.
