Comment Apps should all be try before buy (Score 1) 523

I wish all app stores allowed developers to create "try before buy" apps where users can try a limited version of the app and choose to upgrade to full version w/o having to download the "pro" version. I think the windows phone marketplace allows for those kinds of apps. I created an addicting boggle app called "word zigzag": ( ) On the android marketplace, the free version canabalizes the sales of the paid version. If there was a "try before buy" feature built into the app marketplaces, then I think I would get more sales of my paid version.

I must be blind b/c I couldn't find the link to the article. I googled the post's title and found this article: In case someone is equally blind as me, I hope that helps.

I still think it would be more effective if people were opted into this program. Perhaps whenever they see the alert, they will see a question next to the alert that asks if they wish to opt in/out of this program in the future. If they don't answer, then they'll continue to get the alerts AND asked to opt in/out. Alternatively facebook can place the alerts in the left/right column so it is not directly in the news feed.

>Facebook users are able to sign up to receive AMBER Alert bulletins... I actually think that facebook should do the facebook thing and opt everyone into this automatically. And if a facebook user doesn't want to be alerted to the AMBER alerts, then they can opt out. It might be more effective if everyone is opted into this program.

There are many HTML/JS only sites that do not work for these new touch devices because the developers are still stuck in the mouse click/hover mindset. Same holds true for Flash sites/games. Like HTML/JS developers, Flash Developers also need to be mindful to ensure that their creations work on these new touch devices. Developers need to make tweeks to existing code. There shouldn't be a need to rewrite a site/game from scratch just because one individual deems it so.
