Ben Brooks talks about something he saw on an application’s website where they had a link to the Mac App Store so you could buy the app and a download link so that you could try the app for 30 days.
Brooks indicates this is a solution to the lack of trial software in the Mac App Store. I disagree. While techy people like him and I may visit an application’s website before buying it in the Mac App Store, the majority of people won’t think about this or know that it even makes sense to look into.
While it is an obvious workaround for developers, I don’t think it solves the issues for most users.
