    A day late and a dollar short. For those in the piracy game, it is now embedded in their genes. The excuse that they want to try before they buy was just that, an excuse. They needed something to rationalize their actions. Now they are going to say it is to expensive, I'm in college, my mom cut my allowance, so all apps should be free.:rolleyes:

    Darn. I was hoping Apple was introducing a 24 hour trial period to use apps, or something :p Wishful thinking lol. Regardless, this is a step in the right direction.

    I slightly disagree with it being embedded in their genes. Sadly, I was once a pirate. But there came a point in time where I matured and realized piracy was theft, and that I was stealing food from the creator's table. So people can change; I did. I'm now proud to pay for things and support developers, musicians, filmmakers, etc.

    I do agree, though, that it's often used as an excuse. I've heard the college/university thing a lot. I'm in university, and I have no problem paying for apps (there are many apps that help me in university life). Sadly, some people don't even offer excuses; they say, "Why buy it when I can get it for free?" Majority of those people wont change their ways, though.

    Apple compiled all the lite version of the apps in this category, well that made it easy to find for some users (I guess? lol)

    Personally, I think all apps should launch with both lite and full versions.

    If you look at the size of both versions, they are identical. The lite version is merely locked after so many levels or so much time, before a splash screen appears asking if you wish to purchase (aka "unlock") the full version.
