Hockey Scores App Uses In App Payments to Remove Ads

Capture23_53_3 ScreenShot2.4

I was just saying last week that in-app payments could be huge for both RIM and developers. One of the examples I used was developers allowing you to upgrade an app from a trial or free version to a premium ad free version inside the app. Ebscer let us know that they have done just that with their Hockey Scores app allowing users to upgrade from the free ad supported version to a premium version without ads for $0.99 all inside the app.

It will be interesting to see more developers taking advantage of this new feature!

  1. Don’t really follow hockey, but have fun with it for all who do.

  2. I think the concept is more important than the delivery mechanism in this case. The in-app payment system would be a real boon to many developers. The possibilities really are endless on implementing this concept.

  3. That’s pretty cool. Does this mean we don’t have to redownload the whole app when you want it ad free?

  4. I would definitely never pay for an app to get scores, but I like the idea and concept.

  5. Honestly, I don’t mind ads that much.

  6. Rather use score mobile

  7. Very nice update!


  9. Why would someone pay for live scores? Why not use Score Mobile which includes many sports and is free?
