Windows Store to offer seven-day trials for apps Microsoft has confirmed that apps purchased from the Windows 8 Windows Store will come with a trial period.
App purchases will come with seven day trials, including having "built-in functionality to make app trials hassle-free for both developers and users."

The news should be a welcome relief to consumer who are used to either having no trials on iOS or 15 minute trials via Android.

If you choose to upgrade from the trial to the full app, all of your customizations and data settings will stay along for the ride. The Windows 8 API will prompt users to upgrade after the trial is up, and Microsoft will also give developers "analytics to show the conversion process."

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Lets renegotiate them.

I have to admit, it's still much better than the 15 minutes that Google Play gives you. I don't even know what Amazon gives you.
