    I am a long time JB'er and invested a lot of money into the into the developers. However, I wish more apps came with trials. I would love to try an app before I commit to a buy, as I dont know how stable it is, or if I'd even like it. I think the devs would bring in more money if they offered trials, as more people would enjoy their app and buy.

    Anyone agree?

    I've always agreed and spoke about the very same thing.

    This is one reason why the cracked repo's are so frequently used.

    I agree. With jailbreak apps not having a standard testing and approval process like apps released through the App Store, there is a greater chance of getting a buggy mess. But that's why I read up on the Cydia apps before buying them.

    Every paid tweak should let you have at least a day trial. I have never used a crack, I have always paid for these as $1 or $2 honestly doesn't make a big dent, but I do think it would be far better to have trials.

    Yup, I've wasted about $10 so far this jailbreak on buggy apps. I then tried a cracked app and wound up having to DFU restore my phone.:mad:

    I'd feel better if the jailbreak team at least got a cut of the apps money.

    glad to see I'm not the only one who believes this. I would really like to buy Auxo, but without a trial I wont risk it.

    I've been using the cracked one for a while, and it has been working just fine. I'll buy it soon :)
