According to a report from India’s Economic Times, Apple may have changed their return policy on Apps to a 7-day policy. The report suggests that the change has been made in order to comply with Taiwan’s consumer protection mandate.
Officials have claimed that the lack of a return and refund mechanism for apps violated the Consumer Protection App, and is a problem that Taiwan would very much like to protect their citizens against.
I find this to be an extremely positive move, and am frankly concerned that Apple has not given a real, workable way for all of their customers to try apps before they buy them in all cases – or at least have a refund policy that allows for buyer’s remorse – their current policies don’t do much.
