I rarely buy apps for my iPhone for one simple reason: I'm not going to spend a pile of money on software until I'm sure it suits my needs. Until Apple allows true trial or demo version of apps, these developers just won't get my money.

Buying a $0.99 app and finding out it sucks is one thing. Buying 3 or four similar $20 apps to try out and see which one will suit my needs is another thing entirely.

I'd love to get an iPad and trick it out with word processing, mind mapping, productivity, and finance software to make it my primary computer, but there's not a single chance I'll spend money on all that software that may be completely useless for my needs.

It's too bad Apple doesn't allow this. I can't imagine it'd be hard to do.
