I went to the App Store today to download an app that was featured as 'Free for a day' in my Apps Gone Free app. I found myself a little confused - yes, even me!
The Free button was not there - instead there was a Get button.
So, I wondered if this Get button only applied to apps that were temporarily free - until I read some online articles shortly after, that advised that Apple had re-labelled all Free download buttons and replaced them with this new Get button.
Apparently, this is Apple's attempt to comply (sort-of) with new guidelines in EU countries. Apps labelled as Free could mislead downloaders about the app - since that app could include In-App Purchase which are not free.
