If only that worked for paid apps rather than just in-app purchases.



Then, they could release it as free and then charge in-app as soon as they launch?

Would Apple allow a product in the App Store that didn't have any functionality in its default form without a required in-app purchase?

-----


No but some limited functionality could be possible I think. Maybe a limited free play period or the ability to watch others play but not take part until they have subscribed.

-----


You just gave me my new app's strategy for subscriptions to avoid this issue. Thanks!

-----


You are welcome. Just out of interest which part? The watching without playing option?

-----


They could have done that but they didn't so they seem to need to dig themselves out somehow.
