Allowing the user to extend trial period of my windows store app ( not just buy and get full license) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that there exists mechanisms to set expiration dates for apps and then using the requestAppPurchaseAsync function to purchase full license. But what if I want to extend the trial period, how do I go about doing that.

    example:

    Say the user presses a button and the trial period extends by 5 days. How would you go about achieving this using the WinJs functionality 

    Reference: Trial in-app sample at msdn

  • Hi Abhinav,

    There is no support for changing the length of the trial on the fly. Only the original trial period is allowed, and once it expires the user will no longer be able to even launch the app.

  • Rob,

    Can you get "another trial" by uninstalling and reinstalling the app?
