Trial feature using Payment Service


I was thinking of selling my app for free on the appstore as a 1 week trial.

After downloading the app the user whould have 1 week to use it for free before being asked to use In-App purchase to either pay or not be able to use the app anymore.


After downloading the app, how can i detect the date the user FIRST bought the app on the store?

Even after repeated uninstalls/reinstalls by the same blackberry ID, this FIRST purchase date shouldn't change.

If the user does use In-App purchase to unlock it, then I would stop checking this FIRST purchase date.


Is is possible for me to do this?

Re: Trial feature using Payment Service

You could store the date the user first ran the application in local storage, but this would get wiped if the user were to delete the application. There is no architecture currently to support Trials.

Goodbye everybody!
