I've become a little annoyed - but not terribly so - by apps and games that are posted in iTunes as if they were full games for free. Only once they're installed does the user discover that what you got is just a sample, and in order to get the entire program, you need to make an in-app purchase for the "full" or "pro" version.
What ever happened to actually divulging that the app in question is only a demo? And what ever happened to just putting the full version for sale on iTunes?
I thought Apple had this strict policy with regard to what is publishable? Is this the developers' way around their strict process of approval? Just publish a stub and then have the user buy the real application from within? Is this against Apple's policy?
I can only speak for myself, but I prefer all my purchases to go through Apple.
