I made the rookie mistake of buying an iPod app for my iPad. I called the support line asking for a refund. While they gave it, it came with a reminder that such purchases are final (they would make an exception this time, apparently).But remember, it's easy to get a refund for an app that fails to live up to its promise - just call the toll-free Apple Support line with your transaction reference number and you'll be given a refund as a credit to your iTunes account
While they may give refunds, I understand that this is not necessarily guaranteed. I would not purchase apps based upon the understanding that refunds are guaranteed in the event I am unhappy.
Hahaha, well, while apps ARE cheap, I'm going to use all free apps until Christmas, when I ask for an iTunes gift card. Spending $568 on this iPad and Smart Cover was a huge purchase, and I now have to have a very strict budget for awhile! (Worth it though... so worth it.)
Hopefully, you are correct.so I think you must have had a partially unlucky experience
Fortunately, I have never been tempted to return another app. My perception is that the apps are generally more polished with apple than with android (or MS mobile). Maybe that is one of the benefits of the infamous vetting process of Apple. So far, all apps that I have downloaded have met my expectations and I have kept them (with the one iPod exception).
