    This has happened to me a lot of times. I download something that LOOKS cool, but the second I play it, it totally sucks! Instead of losing anywhere from $0.99 to $10.00, maybe Apple could do this:

    .When you buy an App, it charges to your credit card as always, but you have anywhere from a two to five minute time limit to test it out for yourself.

    .If you choose to delete the app within the time limit, underneath the "Please rate ______ before deleting" pop-up, there could be a "Refund" button, and it would open up a new popup that gives you a list of complaints to choose from, like the regular iTunes "Report a Problem" feature.

    not bad but maybe like 10-20 minutes and i thought thats what lite versions were for. of course there are very little lite versions of games. but u could always read a review here or o watch a youtube video

    Nope. Apple would never do that.
    They make money with a no-refund policy.

    Besides, many developers offer a "Lite" version. Many do not, too.

    Nice idea, but I doubt it'll ever happen.

    EDIT: kevin1st is right. You can easily look a review up for it on YouTube. Users here also post many reviews on apps and games.
