    I am attending an event tonight and would like to watch the finals on my slingbox. I have no need besides tonight to use slingbox and waste the $30. Can't you try an app out for 24 hours and cancel it? Exactly how does that process work?

    The return policy used to be 24 hours, but it was changed a few months ago to 15 minutes.

    15 minutes is absolutely ridiculous. Many apps can't be set up/tested in that amount of time.

    Yes, but unfortunately 1 - 24 hours allows for too much abuse. Case in point... the poster starting this thread wants to benefit from the use of a particular app, and despite getting use out of it, he wants to be able to return it before getting charged for it.

    True...I wonder if there can be some type of compromise? For example, for a $30 app, give a 24 hour trial for $5 or something like that. That way the developers would still get some income for those that don't want to pay full price.

    For cheap ($5 or less) apps, I don't really have a problem with the 15 minute refund policy. I spend more than that on lunch.

    Google should have cut the time in half first before going to 15-minutes. That's a big jump.

    Would it be problematic if developers used their discretion to set a return policy timeframe? Maybe no less than 15-minutes but not to exceed 24-hours?

    To go from 24 hours to 15 minutes is laughable. Give someone at least a couple of hours to actually TRY the app out.

    Absolutely. 15 minutes is nowhere near enough time and 24 hours may be too much, but there has to be a happy medium. Give us a good hour or two at least to really try the app out and see weather or not we want to keep it.
