Apple has had “In App Purchases” available for quite a while now, but only recently has it become available to those apps that were originally deemed “free”. So weather your app costs $299.00, $.99, or even if it is free, you can jump on the corporate bandwagon and try to squeeze a few more pennies out of the unsuspecting consumer.
“In App Purchase is being rapidly adopted by developers in their paid apps. Now you can use In App Purchase in your free apps to sell content, subscriptions, and digital services.
You can also simplify your development by creating a single version of your app that uses In App Purchase to unlock additional functionality, eliminating the need to create Lite versions of your app. Using In App Purchase in your app can also help combat some of the problems of software piracy by allowing you to verify In App Purchases.”
