How about charging for the apps using a "service model"

You could name you apps like

 com.foobar.theapp2009q3 com.foobar.theapp2009q4

When version X expires, the app can launch an Intent to point the user to
the newer version. This way it should be seamless.

This model should work for some apps (the "service" type, such as
dating/matchmaking, accessing real state info database, etc) but not others
(such as games, which people think once they paid they own the right to it

If you provide a good service, I think people won't mind paying $0.49 per
quarter for it ...
