"n an attempt to comply with pro-consumer laws, Apple is going to allow customers who mistakenly purchase an iOS app or get burned by a shoddy one the ability to get a refund within seven days of purchase. Don't get too excited, though: you'll have to live in Taiwan to take advantage of the revised return policy."
This is aggravating, I wish we had the same thing offered to us outside of Thailand. I've purchased several apps that I wish I hadn't and this would be the perfect out. It might also keep a lot of the crap out of the app store. I try to read through the reviews and determine which ones I can trust before purchasing the app, but sometimes the bad ones get through. Even if it were just a one day deal I would be happy. Apple seems to be playing by the rule of law in Thailand but what about Google and their Android Marketplace? No dice so far, they refuse to allow returns.
