One issue many people have with the iPhone App Store is the lack of trial versions that force you to pay for an application even if you are not sure it will do what you need or want it too. Many developers have created Lite versions that act as trial versions and are available for free. According to Android Central the Android Market's new paid applications can be purchased and used for 24 hours with a return policy if the application doesn't live up to expectations.
Installation problems, buggy applications, lack of trial versions, and a mediocre selection have dampened initial enthusiasm for Apple's brand new iPhone App Store.Not counting punishing server load when the store debuted last week, some users (like me) have encountered a series of obstacles to get apps to work at all.
I know a few of us here on ZDNet are hard at work on iPhone 3G and iPhone application articles and one aspect of the new Apple iPhone Application store that struck me immediately was that there are no trial versions of the commercial software. One of the major benefits for me that gets me using and eventually buying mobile software applications is the ability to try a full, or even limited, version for 14 to 30 days on my devices to see if the application truly fits my needs and is worth the cost. There are NO trial applications that I can find on the iPhone Application store.
I gave the iPhone an honest try and as I stated in a post late last week I returned my iPhone prior to the 14-day trial period. I found that the iPhone lacked features found in many of today's feature and high-end smartphones and thought I could just leave it all behind me and move on. However, the iPhone drew me back in hour-by-hour over the weekend and I just could no longer resist it so I just picked up a new iPhone at the Apple store a couple hours ago. Over the weekend I tried using a Nokia N95 tethered with a N800 and both are excellent devices in their own way and I actually found some new applications for the N95 that made me like it even more. However, the Apple iPhone is slick and so refreshing after using other Palm, embedded Linux, Windows Mobile, and Symbian devices over the last 10 years that I was pulled back to it. At this time, the iPhone isn't necessarily about features, but about smooth integration and a new user experience that appeals even to power users like me.
