Whilst scouring through the new Mac App Store, I stumbled across an interesting looking £11.99 application called Zipline. It’s basically a news feed for your desktop, with a little extra spice, but I just felt that it was a little too expensive to be a justified purchase. So I left it.
That there outlines the single biggest problem with the App Store itself. Had there been a trial version, I could have justified it, but there wasn’t. So, in my infinite wisdom I quit the App Store, went straight to the developer, Stuffed Iggy Software’s website and looked for a demo. What do you know? I found one, so I downloaded it and as it turns out the demo is fully functional, though you get the occasional reminder to purchase.
