Try Apps Before You Buy in Android Market

Try Apps Before You Buy in the Android Market

Apple has its rigorous screening process to help keep subpar apps out of its AppStore; Google's Android Market is a bit more like the Wild West of mobile app stores — there's no screening or application process, but that also means Google has less control over what shows up in the store. Now, Google has added a new, helpful feature to the Android market, allowing users to "try then buy" apps for Android devices. Users first download a free "lite" version of the app, with the option to purchase the full version via Google's new in-app purchase system.

Because the functionality is new and has just launched, there aren't too many apps taking advantage of it just yet, but Android customers can see how it works with apps that include Tap Tap Revenge and more.
