I installed A1 Visual Tasks as trial, never really used it so I forgot about it and decided to check it out now. It says "Trial Mode: -1 days left" but I can still use it fully. What are the "rules" when it comes to trial version of paid apps?

Seems to me like it's the same as WinRAR. It just nags you but doesn't completely shut you out.

Depends on the app in question

Revert to limited demo mode.

Nag you with ads(these probably have ads form the start and are free apps with an ad free option though)

Completely disabled

I see. So I guess the developer of this app hasn't implemented anything post-trial yet because I still get full functionality without any ads.

Probably. Might be a pre release thing to.

PowerDVD locks you out entirely after 14 days, for an example of that.

If it's a time limited trial, once the time limit expires, you will be unable to launch it again the next time it's closed (whether you manually kill it, reboot, or the system terminates it to free up memory). Before that happens, it's up to the app author to detect that the license has expired and close the app, do something like put up a barricade page, or do nothing and wait until the next close/reboot/etc to enforce the expiration.
