Back in the day (as in the other day) you might go to the App Store as well as tap a button that claimed FREE to download and install a free application. Today, you’ll be tapping a button that states OBTAIN. Why? Speculation is that issues pertaining to in-app purchases as well as litigation overseas might be at fault.

I suspect it makes good sense, as lots of “free” applications are actually “freemium,” meaning that to unlock more features or levels you need to spend for in-app acquisitions. Still, I believe “Acquire” is a little ridiculous at finest and also at worst, perplexing to some users. We speculate that some could wonder that if they tap that button they will “acquire” a virus. Also, I believe many individuals will question just what the application really sets you back– considering that now the prices info isn’t up leading.
