The 1 month sub seems more than enough as opposed to handing off free trials all over the place.
I agree with this idea actually. I have suggested one of my friends about Infinite Flight Live, but he didn’t want to waste Rp67,000- just to test it even after I showed him some pictures about it. And with the upcoming Pro which will rises the prices to Rp130,000 (You can do alot of things with Rp130,000-). I think a free trial for a day (24 hours) or maybe 12 hours only should be enough to convince customers that Global is worth for the Rp130,000,- price tag. That’s my 2 cents about this
Thanks for sharing your opinion!
Tho is a good idea because how much is the game? Like $6 I think. That would be a great idea. But you will have to find a way from people making multiple Accounts. Maybe the 1 day trial has only the free planes.
It wouldn’t be a trial for the game itself, just Infinite Flight Pro, the paid subscription plan.
I like this idea but for a free trial you wouldn’t need any longer than a couple of hours to get a feel for how amazing this sim is
I bought a month for now :) and love it. My last post was based on older version before update
I agree with this and the benefit far outweighs the cost for FDS in the long run.
I think a 24 hour trial would probably be most reasonable. You have my vote.
How do you keep people from making a new trial every day?
Possible one trial per Apple ID purchase (if that’s even possible)? If I bought the app on firstname.lastname@example.org, I will receive a 9 hour trial on that Apple ID. In order to make a new one, I’d have to repurchase IF completely with another Apple ID in order to get the trial again. And @ Laura, although the base app is sufficient feature wise, a trial should still be allowed to allow users to see if they’re comfortable allowing their device to be on that long. Let’s say I buy infinite flight pro and I see that my device gets very hot and lags severely while using global, and I come to the conclusion that I cannot fly on IF anymore; there goes $10. But, with the trial of 9 hours, it will allow the user to do one semi long haul flight to see whether or not they are comfortable with global.
I guess if you limit it to one per device using the IP address or something/one per account.
Maybe they can make some system that tracks trials based on device rather than the account they use?
Or what about a free weekend like a lot of video games on Xbox And PS4 have done and are very successful idk if u can do that with Apple but might be worth it? Could gain lots of new players
They will have to first create a Live account. If they already have an account, they can click on “one time 24 hr trial”.
A unique redeem code will be emailed to user.
User puts redeem code into App Store and redeems their 24 hr trial
If it’s Apple ID based or similar, what keeps someone from making IDs, it’s really easy.
Apple will get kinda suspicious, so will FDS
With a new Apple ID you will have to repurchase the app, which means they’re basically getting half of the monthly subscription just for 9 hours if someone is gonna keep buying the app just for the trial.
FDS could use your IP address to help prevent abuse via someone creating multiple accounts.
Add* They could integrate Game Center into IF where you could use Game Center to log into Live.
I think this sounds concept sounds pretty alright. While I am certainly someone who paid for 1 month Live before committing to 1year Live+, I think giving people a trial of Global might help people make the decision to put in 1/6/12 months of subscription.
IF should cost around $5 to purchase? I think after the purchase, and creating a live account, they could be given a trial of global at the price worthy of $5.
Thinking through it, I’ld say 2-3hrs is sufficient for the feel of global. Its up to them how they want to utilize the 2-3hrs of flight.
Though, I highly doubt this would be implemented, its an option I guess. Then again, I never got 3hrs of Live trial either, I spent money on 1month of Live and invested in 2 years of of Live+.
I think FDS also deserves to earn that $10 for 1 month of subscription, and these people can try global for a sufficient amount of time before considering 1year of global.
After all, nobody needs global, if they want it, pay some money to give it a try. If they love it, pay more money and FDS even provides all the planes when you buy 1 year. Win-win for everyone.
Although the profit wouldn’t be there initially or even ever, the higher count of the general public using/deciding and logged into FDS’s app could be as good as gold in an electronic gaming world. 1 hr max for another 50k views (arbitrary). Honestly 30 minutes in a primo area of the map would suffice. It’s not my business and I’m sure there is absolute brainiacs running the show…2 cent stuff.
