In my opinion, this is a great announcement because it will allow developers to put out a free trial app, and then using in-app purchasing upgrade it to the full version without loosing data stored within the app. This could possibly get rid of the mutiple versions of an app, ex. a lite edition, a regular, and a pro. ----- On a side note I would also like to see more developerstake advantage of in-app purchasing. I hate it when I have to scroll through apps on a search because of all of the different types of the app. I do not see why they cannot build a basic version with the U.I. that when you load it up it asks you to buy via in-app purchasing a certain kind. It would clean up the app store a ton. That's my opinion when in-app purchasing first came out. And I am disappointed to not see this tool used more often. Let me know what you opinion is about in-app purchasing and the ability to use it on free apps as well.
