Free apps that turn out not to be free are truly the most irritating thing out there. You download a game for free, but after reaching a certain level you’re unable to continue unless you make an in-game purchase. At that point the games stops being free.
There’s nothing wrong with paying a few dollars using reach prepaid card, but it would be better if you knew up front how much it costs. Getting stopped in the middle of using an app no matter if they are online casino games or role playing games to pay a fee can make you feel like you were deceived, and that makes it less likely you’ll either pay the fee or continue to use it in the future. While you might not be able to prevent being tricked into downloading an app like this every time, there are some things you can do to reduce the likelihood of it happening.
Read the description before you download. Some apps are free to download but the standard versions have limited features and require you to purchase each feature individually. The description should say what comes standard and what doesn’t.
Take the time to read the reviews. Almost every app has a review somewhere online, and they’re often pretty detailed. If the game you’re about to download for free has a level that you can’t get past without purchasing a special tool, then the game’s not really free. You’re just paying for it after you’ve already had it downloaded for a while.
Check to see if there’s a paid version of the app. If you can find a duplicate of the free app you’re about to download but this one costs money, then more than likely you’re downloading a demo or a trial version. There’s nothing wrong with that, but be aware that you’ll have to pay a fee to upgrade to the full app.
