This might be a dumb question but are there any hidden fees behind free apps?

I was just wondering if there were any hidden charges behind downloading free apps? I've been downloading a few free ones and I don't want to get hit with hidden fees.


p.s. iPhone's are absolutely amazing! Couldn't be happier with it. =D

If it says they're free, they're free.

The app could contain a service that isn't free, but you can't automatically get charged just for downloading the app..

There are no hidden charges behind free apps. A free app may be a trial version of a pay app (a Lite version), but you can't get stuck for charges with any free apps.

Like above, no hidden fees. But with paid apps, there is tax included after the transaction... at least in Illinois....

That isn't the case in the UK, the price you see is the price you pay
