Android App Store Lets You Return Apps

Have You Ever Wanted to Return a Phone App?

An awesome detail about Android's App Market — which had recently announced paid apps in the store — has come to light: If you're not satisfied with an app you bought, you can return it within 24 hours of purchasing it.

Though simple, this customer service feature is fantastic; I would love to see a similar policy implemented for iTunes' App Store, since I tend to gravitate toward cheaper apps, particularly because I know that once I buy it, there's no going back.

I haven't wanted my money back for an app that I've paid for yet, because I tend to mull over the decision so carefully, reading every posted review, so I'm confident when I do pay. What about you? Ever regretted the purchase of a smartphone app?

I have an iPhone so I always try and read lots of reviews about an app before throwing down for it. Sometimes it just doesn't suit your personal needs though and that is depressing.

I wish we could preview them before purchase to see if I really liked them. I would buy more if I liked the app.

I agree with "Kelsee" I would buy more apps if that option was available. I wish T-mobile would get on board with this.

It would be great to have a temp preview of it for a day before having to pay for it and later realizing you dont want it or need it at all!

I've never wanted to return an app until I got an email from iTunes saying that I purchased an app for $3.99 that I knew I never downloaded! Come to find out my husband downloaded it onto my phone, realized it was crap and deleted it! All for nothing. Yes, I wish I could have returned it after realizing that.
