Windows Store to offer seven-day trials for apps
Microsoft has confirmed that apps purchased from the Windows 8 Windows Store will come with a trial period.

App purchases will come with seven day trials, including having "built-in functionality to make app trials hassle-free for both developers and users."



The news should be a welcome relief to consumer who are used to either having no trials on iOS or 15 minute trials via Android.

If you choose to upgrade from the trial to the full app, all of your customizations and data settings will stay along for the ride. The Windows 8 API will prompt users to upgrade after the trial is up, and Microsoft will also give developers "analytics to show the conversion process."

    I could care less, I want live on the PC, no live no purchase!

    Until lobbying is a hanging offense I choose anarchy!
    Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".

    I have to admit, it's still much better than the 15 minutes that Google Play gives you. I don't even know what Amazon gives you.
