Apple launches try before you buy section in the App store

Apple has launched a new section in their App store called "Try Before You Buy". This section features popular Apps that are "free" or "lite". many of the lite versions will still need to be paid for once you decide to buy the App. Many users found it difficult to decide if they really needed an App without actually trying it out. Since the section features many free and lite version of Apps, it will provide a hassle free way of trying out new Apps.


This action is a clear step taken by Apple to fight against pirated Apps which are easily available on jailbroken iPhones, iPod Touch and the iPad. So this will b,e try before you buy and there is no need of pirating and sneakily getting Apps, when you can try the real thing for free.  Uses can sample Apps and not be bothered about pirated versions of the same which has already cost the App store half a billion dollars. 


You can find this new section under the “Free on the App Store” heading. The section currently holds 98 apps, including the “lite” renditions games such as Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown, Metal Gear Solid Touch and Labyrinth 2, free adaptations of apps such as Moodagent and AccuTerra.


Currently there are 98 Apps and we hope all the Apps land in this section. Once you try the Lite version of an App, you would still need to pay for the full version if you decide to purchase it.
