Maybe people can't read for content around here, I don't have a problem with trials or demo software, I have a problem with people that whine about it!! 😣 Demos are a choice a company makes marketing wise, if you don't like the lack of such demos complain to the company not to the public in general.

it's a "shame" (not the end of the world, just "a shame") that there isn't a demo or trial for this. Personally, I don't know anyone using Logic, although I know a lot who used to. While I could go to the Apple Store, that's not really a great place to see if the app is really for me or not. What I'd really like to do is have a trial with enough time to go through a Lynda or other tutorial and see if it works well for me as opposed to the other audio editing software I'm currently using.
That is fine but why not express that opinion to Apple, nobody here has any control over how Apple markets anything.
Without that, I'm likely not to switch to Logic Pro X, and I think there may be others like zcherries and myself.
To put it plainly that is foolish.
And it's not just a problem with Logic Pro X. There have been other apps that haven't had trials where I have either passed on or felt terribly let down after purchasing something that wasn't right for me.
So; it isn't impossible to buy an app that is right for you today and a year later it is a useless pile of bits. As for determining if an app is right for you that often requires more time than a demo will permit.
What's your problem with trials and demos?
Again it isn't the demos that are the problem it is the whining on the forums when no body here can do anything about it. I can't snap my fingers and get Apple to produce a suite of demo apps and frankly I'm not even sure that I should. Beyond that there is more than one way to research a product.
My only real concern about demo apps is that they are an avenue for hackers to steal your work. That is a minor concern really because they can often crack mainline distributions too.
