Erm...so I was going to download the trial of Aperture for my friend to have it already downloaded just in case...but it doesn't look like there _is_ a trial of Aperture. At least not any more. The main Aperture page doesn't say anything, just a "buy now" button, but after Googling I found https://www.apple.com/aperture/trial/
. However, that just says "Go to the Mac App Store". So I go there (on my work machine), and find it there, but don't see anything about a trial period, just "buy now for $79.99". WTF Apple. Demos/Trials are pretty darn important for most software, especially something like this.
