Look at something like Angry Birds. It is fun an all, but there were games like this that were totally free on web pages years ago.
not the best example - totally free on Android and only 59p on iOS (iirc it's free on Symbian too). i get your general drift though.
It's FREE?!? I got the beta and assumed that was a demo and the full version was paid. Downloading on my HTC Desire now!
But yes, bad example, but you get my drift
And thanks for the heads up!
