We were surprised to see the heading “Try Before You Buy” when browsing the Apple App Store on one of our iPhones, but after a bit more investigation… we stopped being surprised. The new try before you buy feature is actually a collection of applications that have both a “lite” and paid version available in the App Store. If a developer makes an application that is paid-only, like TomTom Navigation for example, there is no way to try that $40 application without buying it. Hopefully, Apple gets around to implementing a real try before you buy type system sooner rather than later.
