    Ovi and trials

    Hello Folks,
    I have just read the Publisher Guide for ovi once again and found no mention of trialware.

    is there a way to make a free trial?

    All the best

    Hi,
    Trial ware is describe at the Ovi Webinar and not very easily in the Terms and Conditions.
    However I just posted in another thread a similar answer.
    I am not the on the Ovi team,but seem to be the only person answering questions,perhaps could be better but there is limited information around.

    an extract from another posting:-

    [1] Do we need to make TWO versions for EACH application?
    1) Full version (Content Type = "Amount $"?)
    2) Demo version with 12-day expiration period (Content Type = FREE?)
    YES

    [2] Also, once the demo is over, to what link do I forward the user? (we have a dialog saying "This demo has expired. To get the full version, please visit URL" - what is the URL the user should visit?

    [3] And if we need two versions for EACH app - that will cost us 40$ (both the demo and the full version have to be signed). Is this correct?!

    Yes this seems the case BTW $20 is for Java!, no standard price for symbian has been published

    Re: Ovi and trials

    Hi,
    now, the question is how many developers will actually offer trials.

    The App store works well without trials, so its a question of commonness (aka who does it) rather than style.

    I don't mind not having trials actually...less piracy involved

    Hi,

    _LIT(KSvgFile, "z:\\resource\\apps\\LocaNote_aif.mbm");

    BTW: other images are loaded fine from the file at a later point in time.

    All the best
