Free game updates

For those of you who may not know...

I have found this out:

Say I download an app or game for free. Later the developer changes the price to say $.99 cents. An update then comes out...if you already have the app and got it for free, the update is also free! A nice little tip/trick. Maybe this has only happened to me. Anyone else find this out??

Yep. Noticed that the other day.

What I've learned from playing Super Monkey Ball, is that monkeys, in a ball, fall at a speed of 263 mph, on average.

This is the case for everyone, and will always happen.

by downloading free app you become app owner, and updates are free for app owners so it's 100% normal ^^
