Google Play now offering free trials for in-app subscriptions
The Google Play Store has had in-app subscriptions available since May, and the feature really came into fruition in June when the Nexus 7 was released and magazines were added to the store. Now, in-app subscriptions are getting even better with the option to offer free trials.

As of today, developers can now add in the option to offer free trials for its in-app subscriptions. The free trial must be at least 7 days, but over that, it can be as long as the developer wants (although we don't really expect too many trials that last much longer than about 2 weeks.) The purchase will go through as a transaction for $0.00, and users will get an e-mail detailing the deal. When the trial ends, the full amount of the subscription will automatically be charged, unless the user cancels. 

It seems like a pretty solid way to try to get more people interested in magazines in Google Play, and any other subscription services that are offered.

What they need to do now is keep app data across different devices because I've bought things in apps, then have all that with what i bought gone when I uninstall the app
