    How many paid apps do you own?

    Just got the thinking after a recent post, how many people stay stictly to free apps versus paying for apps? Do you prefer to stay on the cheap or do you feel like you want to thank the developers and pay them even pocket change for their work? Or even for premium features?

    How many paid apps do you own?

    36 here. Some I don't use any more, others were to open special features and many were to thank developers for their hard work and for putting up with the 1-star complainers in the market.

    I think a lot of people would be surprised at the time and effort it requires to create these apps, and at the number of people that actually donate (given the choice). So, major respect due to all those that donate to developers, theme creators and ROM builders.

    I agree. The developer spent hard time creating the app, and they should be compensated for their efforts.

    Re: How many paid apps do you own?

    If there's a free version, I give it a go. If I like it, I buy it. I must admit when I first started I also had my share of hacked apps but after awhile I thought what support is there if I don't contribute? So never again. Happy right now that my gadgets are clean. What irks me though is that sometimes I'd see different forums that distribute even free apps by giving apk's instead of just pointing them out to play store or other legal sites like the developer's pages themselves. Anyway, back to the question. I have about 23 paid apps. Some I don't use anymore as well

    I pay for all the apps that help out the rooting community. I have 27 out of 70 on the phone

    I have somewhere in the realm of 100 paid apps. Lots of games and of course all the root essentials. And a bunch more productive apps.

    More than glad to throw a few dollars out for all the great things the available Apps make my device capable of.

    My most used are my root apps and Torque and office suite pro.

    21 paid apps. Most of them root apps going all the way back to the Droid X days. Like dx and d2 bootstrap, android overclock, and Liberty toolbox. Those were the days!!!

    I only bought 1 app - {Poweramp} as I have found everything else I wanted for free. The developer for Poweramp has continually made it better in the 18 months or so I have had it. If I were in a better financial place I would contribute on a voluntary basis. I also have one app that I wish I could pay for, Scrabble (EA/Hasbro) if they would let me have an ad-free version.

    I have about sixty paid apps, ranging from the old 99 cent special, to better than fifteen bucks. I don't mind splurging a bit in support.
