Demo Version

  • The Mac App Store guidelines indicates that "Apps that are "beta", "demo", "trial", or "test" versions will be rejected".

    So if potential customers need to go to my website to download a demo version then I might as well offer the retail version for sale on my website also. Why use the Mac App Store?

    Do we really need to rehash this business discussion every few weeks on this technical mailing list?

    This question is entirely up to you to answer.

    Of note, while all these are banned, apple seem entirely okay with "lite" versions.  The key is basically that the lite version must still function as an app on its own... just not quite as complete a one as the full version.  This as opposed to a demo app which is likely to stop working as an app on its own.

    Thanks
