    In app purchases are now available for free apps as well as paid!

    I'd say to expect many more apps using this feature now.

    Shame TTR3 was just released, I expect it would've been free if Apple had released this earlier.

    Here's my question. Does Apple get 30% of the profit with In-App purchases, just like they do with Apps? Or does all of the money go straight to the developers?

    How are they failing you now?.... 0_o

    Anyways, this is neat.
    Now applications can be smaller because devs can leave "unnecessary" parts out.
    And users can download what they want to expand their application.

    yes you only have to sign one agreement for all paid apps and they only review your bank/tax info for all paid apps and you can do in app purchase so I believe they will also take 30%.. IMO i dont really care because they are doing a pretty good job.. I like the company and they need to pay for server space (although i have already paid $200 for that :/)
