Hi!

Did you know that you can try out a paid app on the Google Play Store for free for 15 minutes? Here is how to do it:

  • Buy an Android app on the Google Play Store and play or use it for less than 15 minutes.
  • Before the time has run out, go back to Google Play.
  • Press the Menu button and choose My Apps.
  • Scroll down and select the app in question.
  • Select Uninstall and Refund. If you haven’t even installed the app yet, you’ll only get the Refund option.

You can also get a refund within 48 hours if the app doesn't include a preview, such as wallpaper and ringtone apps.

  • Go to your Google Play account on your PC/Mac. (https://play.google.com/store/account)
  • Log in
  • Under the Options for the individual item you want refunded, click Report a problem
  • Select I’d like to request a refund from the options

Have you ever done this before? I think it's pretty cool! :$

Thanks Mary, sry for the lame question - what do you mean by "it doesn't include a preview" for the 48h refund? Do you mean it doesn't have a linked video?

So with some apps, like ringtones, you can't hear a preview of what ringtone sounds like from the google play store. It's like you are buying something without any idea of what it is! So with purchases like this you have up to 48 hours to get a refund. :)

It is very nice thing, but can you try this. Were you successful or not?
Tell me one thing Account won't be blocked by Google, if we do such type of thing?

Don't worry, Google won't block your account. You can't steal the apps.

Does it really function, never thought of thi before or even tried it once. There are sao many tips, does not the Play Store recognizes all of them, really? I am just wondering.
