aperture 120416Trial software is handy when you want to try out a program before making the decision to purchase it. Unfortunately if you were trying to decide if Apple’s iWork productivity suite, or Aperture for your post-processing photography needs are the software for you, you’re out of luck. Apple has officially discontinued the free trial that they offer customers on its website for its iWork and Aperture products. Instead, customers are now being directed to the Mac App Store where the apps can be downloaded at $19.99 each for iWork (Pages, Keynote and Numbers), while Aperture 3 will set customers back $79.99. It looks like if you’re trying to decide on either software, you’ll probably have to turn to reviews or try it out at an Apple retail store for yourself before making up your mind.
