Microsoft Windows 8 Store: Free Seven Day Trial For Paid Apps

Windows Store

Windows Store

Microsoft has released the the details of its plans for running its new App Store with Windows 8. It is the first time when we have heard about the inner workings of the apps, like the cut Microsoft plans to take.

All the paid apps will cost at least $1.49 as opposed to the $0.99 other platforms allow. Microsoft also has a plan to implement a 7 day “try before you buy” setup with apps which allows consumers to save themselves from wasting money on apps that they don’t like.

Microsoft also wants to provide the app developers with an incentive to churn out apps for its platform. Although they are sticking with the same 30% royalty cut that Apple takes, Microsoft’s new store will only take 20% once your app earns $25,000 in sales.
