I cannot install apps that I have downloaded as free now are now paid-for apps on the PlayBook. In AppWorld, I get the following error:
There was a problem during installation. Please try again
This is a problem because an app cannot be upgraded beyond that point, and once uninstalled there is no way to access it.
Anything that can be done to reinstall these apps?
Solved! Go to Solution.

That is just how the App world works.. And the main reason as a developer will stop developing for the Playbook.
As a developer, you can not have any promotions where you give your app for free.
Anyone who gets the app for free are no longer considered owners once the app is normal price again. You don't get access to updates or even the old version of the app if you delete it from your device.
Terrible practice, and really doesn't surprise me to why RIM is not one of the leaders in the mobile market anymore.
