Apple famously adheres to a strict policy concerning the content in its App Store.

iPhone's 'Try Before You Buy' a Big Disappointment

When we opened the iPhone App Store on Thursday we got a little excited. It seemed like Apple had finally answered the wishes of many in the iPhone owning crowd -- a chance to give apps a whirl before plunking down your hard-earned cash.

Someone...
