Not much chatter going on in here these days, so here's a funny story for you: my paid apps are advertised as "14 non-consecutive days trial", where they used to be feature-limited instead. Anyway, one of the customers I emailed recently to let them know of a new app, responded today and said they weren't interested in trying the new app because they wouldn't be able to trial it on consecutive days!
I'm currently in the process of letting the downloads sites know to change it to just "14 days trial" instead.
That is kind of funny. I understood what 14 non consecutive days meant, but I can see how that wording would confuse people.
You might try something like "Free trial period: 14 days of use." And if you have a place for details, explain in there that only days were they actually use the software are counted.
This is why so many coders hire 'talentless spammers' to take care of the minor stuff, like selling.
