In this article the BBC reports on the UK governments interest in increasing the powers of consumers to gain refunds for digital media, which includes smartphone apps, purchased and downloaded from the Internet.
I think this is good news for consumers who run the risk of being burnt by purchasing apps that turn out to be not fit for purpose. I regularly see complaints from users for apps even on the very controlled Apple App Store and it seems to me the process of gettingbone’s money back for poor products is not clear or even non existent.
So not only is is good news for consumers but also good news for developers of quality apps since the market will increase in confidence about the risk of purchasing new apps as consumers will feel kor in power to get their money back if the app doesn’t work as they expected.
