    Will probably have to pay for the update to 2010.

    I got it for $5 during the playoffs.
    So yea, what exactly happens for next year. There is a new app then, I guess ... and what happens to my app that I have now??

    its an entire new app. Its basically a subscription for $10 a season. My guess is they might make the app free and take advantage of the in app purchase. That way they have one app and no need for a lite version.

    It looks like they pushed an update that removed the "2009" from the title. This does seem to indicate they might be moving towards in-app purchases to get next year's content. It seems like a good solution to me since people that already have the app can be enticed to purchasing the update through the app itself. So they probably will get a higher upgrade ratio than making it a separate app.

    Yes, definitely seems to make sense. Plus, you'd get a higher download rate if you just combined everything.

    I don't know much about the new in-app purchasing, but I don't know how they will deal with an app like this in regards to 'Top Paid' or 'Top Grossing'
    On the plus side, I guess you could upgrade from a Lite or Trial Version in-app and keep your data/info (which I don't think you can do now as it kicks you to the App Store to buy the separate app, and it doesn't transfer your data). right?

    You can watch highlight clips, and interviews with players. It's not that interesting.
