Hello,

I have created 3 applications for mobile phone which has 2 version - Trial & Registered. At present I have kept limitations on trial version & after the period is over, user has to register the product to use further. On registering an SMS is sent to the users phone.

But many uninstall the applicaiton & install it again which makes them free of access multiple times. I want to restrict this. If a person installs once the applicaiton, after finish of trial period, it should not be able to install again. How do I achieve this. I have no idea on how to achieve this or work around this.

Guide me appropriately.
Thanks

What is the logic for implementing trial version? Are you maintaining the time or some other information in the record store and using this to implement you trial version?
If so the record stores will be deleted if the user uninstalls the application.
So the user might be able to use it multiple times without registering?

Please let us know the details about your trial feature implementation.

Alternatively, you could the server side logic to get information whenever the user installs/starts the application and not allow him to start the application after the certain period.

Or
Just make your trial version have only a limited feature set.
