I twittered, “shouldn’t there be a free trial period for paid iphone apps?”

    There most certainly should, and some of the better apps do offer a “lite” version. Best case scenario would be for Apple to force the issue with an internal solution, perhaps by delaying billing for X days and if the app isn’t uninstalled then your credit card gets charged? Something like that would seem fair to me.
