Users hate in-app purchases

Yup. For what little it's worth, "IAP" is a big red flag to me, a warning that the "free" app will prove annoying and/or expensive. I'll usually not download any with it, having learned the hard way (right or wrong) that at these prices it's better to pay the couple bucks up front and get the full clean app, than get "free" and have to wrangle with brokenness and intrusive ads and still end up having to pay.

Sounds pretty dysfunctional. Surely, being able to try something for free before buying it is a positive thing? A shame that it's being done badly then.
