Paid Android Apps Try before you Buy
Say you have found an interesting app in Google’s play store that you are going to buy but as the app price is a bit on the expensive side, you would like to use the app and test the various features before purchasing app from Play Store.
Google doesn’t offer “try before you buy” apps but there are easy tricks that will help you test any paid app before buying it. You buy an app from the Play Store, use it for about 10-12 minutes and then refund the app. The app will be uninstalled from your Smartphone and your account won’t be charged forever.
How to Refund your Android App
Follow these simple steps
Step 1: Visit the Google Play Store, either on your PC or your Smartphone, and buy any of the ‘paid’ apps you like.
Step 2: The app is now installed on your Smartphone. Launch the app and you can test it for the next 10-12 minutes.
Step 3. Go back to the play store app on your Smartphone and go to ‘My Apps’ tap the app name that you are trying to refund. Hit the ‘Refund’ button and the app will automatically uninstall from your Smartphone.
Step 4. Once the App has been uninstalled, it may ask you to specify a reason for removing the app. You’ll also get an email from Google saying:
The refund process is quite easy and 10 minutes are often enough for you to get a good idea about an app. I tried this with at least two different paid apps and the whole thing worked without a hitch. There are however two things regarding Google’s refund policy that you should know:
1. You only have 15 minutes to return an app to the play store from the time of download after which the “refund” option will disappear from the app.
2. You can return an app only once; if you refund an app and purchase it again, you won’t be able to refund it to the Play Store.
