Thursday Poll: How Many Android Apps Have You Paid For?

With the quality of apps on the Android platform on the up and up, I think it’s only fair that developers are starting to look at pricing their applications accordingly. Sure, you won’t see me pay $50 for TomTom anytime soon, but I don’t mind spending a few dollars on a good game or utility application.

In my eyes, if I think I will get my money’s worth, then I’ll purchase the app. Then again, if I’m not sure on buying a game or app, I love it when developers offer a free or “lite” version for people to test run. As another thought, I recall not too long ago when many believed Android users were cheap. I certainly hope that isn’t the case anymore.

As a note, we mean how many apps have you paid for in your entire time with Android, not just what you have on your device as of this moment.

How many Android apps have you paid for?

    I paid full price for Horn ($6.99) a couple of weeks before it went on sale for $.25 but I didn’t mind. It was easily worth the $7 I paid for it. If the quality is there, I’ll pay.

    i’m in the 11-25 category, but wanted to say you should have probably had a ‘0’ category to separate out the real tight-wads 😉

    EFF your marketing survey in disguise, in it’s see-through head. You still view us as lab rats, huh? Anyone with a brain can look at these types of surveys, and see them for what they truly are – marketing research, where you get paid to deliver the results to some scumbag research company. How am I the only one who has ever noticed this? I mean I know the brown-nosers are always going to be oblivious, but I still thought at least one other person could see this.

    With 104, I think I am firmly in the 50+ group.

  • over 100 – a lot of them were during the 10c / 99c sales though

    Wish I could change my vote too. Apparently, I have purchased 65 apps. I have no problem paying for a quality app.

    11 apps from the Play Store, 1 non-free app from Amazon (I had a credit), and 1 directly from the developer.

    I NEVER pay for Apps, ROMs, Themes Etc. If a DEV is not satisfied with just appreciation then F him, I will go find a DEV who is. For every greedy DEV who charges $$ , there is ALWAYS another DEV just as talented offering stuff just as good for free.
