PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In Taiwan, Google recently stopped showcasing paid applications in its marketplace owing to the continuing fight that arose merely because of the change in the return policy, when it was dramatically reduced to just fifteen minutes from 24 hours. In related news, "Apple has rolled out a new refund policy in the Taiwanese versions of its App Store, Mac App Store, and iBookstore. The changes, reported by IDG News this morning, give app buyers the option to get a refund on paid applications and e-books within seven days of buying them from one of Apple's digital storefronts."

15 minute return policy

I wish Google would just let the developers decide what the return policy is, and then let users filter based on that criteria. That way, it would be very easy for us to tell which apps/games are crap and not worth bothering with.

For example, any dev who sets their return window to less than an hour is probably out for a quick cash grab, and so can go get f**ked as far as I'm concerned.

BTW: Doesn't MS set like a 3 day return policy on Windows Phone?
