I have this software which also has a Trial version (30 Days full features active). What is the best position to add the word "Trial" to signal this version:
- the header next to the logo - there is a special header, heigher, more graphical, with a bigger logo, not on the OS's band.
- in the footer band - There is a band at the bottom on which the version number is written and in the case of trial there will be something like "Trial v2.1 - 25 Days left"
I tend to want it on the footer because it gives a little more information, people expect it to be there as that's where the version info is, and it's not so intrusive. But I don't really know what are the best practices or even legal issues concerning it.
