    I would suggest offering a trial. You'll get more buyers that way.

    Hey Willied,
    Thanks for the tip, have you had much expirienced with trial version for apps? what do you think is the best option to interest the user but also not having the user abuse the trial? do you often use time-based trials or launch numbers based trials? can you share some numbers?

    Thanks.

    I haven't made any apps myself, but it's very unlikely I'll buy something if I can't test it out first. You could either have a trial where there is full functionality with ads, or if you don't like that then you could have the trial work for say a day, or however long you like. It's up to you, of course, but I think you should at least test it out with having a trial, and see if that helps your app revenue. I do see you got a review for it yesterday, that should definitely help with someone else's decision on buying it along with a trial. Good luck!

    Offer first few levels as a trial like Mirrors Edge

    No trial = no buy, if you don't feel like I will enjoy the game after getting a trial, why should I pay money and gamble?

    The typical fashions of offering a trial are to either make it ad-supported (so you get some ad revenue if people who would not buy it otherwise only use the free game) or at least a short-term trial, either a timed one (some apps offer something like a one-hour trial version) or by levels (some offer a restricted number of levels).

    I'm not one for buying apps, to be quite honest. However, I have $10 in Microsoft Store cash from Bing Rewards to buy apps, so if I WAS to buy a game, I'd like to be able to see if I like it first.
