Comment on "Do Consumers Want Indie iPhone Apps?"
by David — Jan 16
Chuck, that's because they're not shareware. They're demos.

If you're selling an app that is downloadable, and you enter a serial number to validate it, then you're selling shareware, and you're a (gasp!) shareware developer. As such a developer, you're hoping everyone who downloads your software also passes it on everyone they can. (But without the serial, which is another topic altogether.)

I understand the need by some people to distance themselves away from the negative aspects of the "shareware" label, but come on, we're developers. We can leave the spin for the press releases.
