    Re: Features - QOTW: How much do you spend on apps?

    The only time I have ever purchased an app was when Google were offering them for 10p. That, and when I received a Google Play voucher with my Nexus 7. (I think I've just realised I'm a tight arse).
    Main - Intel Core i5 2300 @ 3.5GHz, 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM, Asus P8P67 Pro, Coolermaster iGreen 600w, GTX 480, Antec One Case

    I will be paying for WhatsApp in a fortnight, this will be my first App purchase since I started on smartphones about 48 months ago.

    Re: Features - QOTW: How much do you spend on apps?

    I've bought a couple of fun games over the years (GeoDefense etc), I've bought some specific esoteric apps such as those for GA (£100 pa), and something for recording my cycling.

    Since going to WP8, I find I don't really need any standard paid apps, I've got pocket office, nokia drive, nokia maps.

    So I'm an odd one, my cost would have only been a couple of £, but thanks to flying, I'm happily in to 3 digits!

    Absolutely nothing. All the ones I needed were free. Most seem to be a waste of money to me.

    Re: Features - QOTW: How much do you spend on apps?

    What is the metric, spend per month ? year ? lifetime of the phone ?
    If it's lifetime then it will of course be skewed to the younger generation as earlier adopters would of had smartphones for years longer.
    Having had a droid for 4 years, think i've spent less than a tenner across all devices

    69p and that too for Whatsapp. They deserve it as I heavily use it.
    Other than that, I have absolutely no plans to buy any app whatsoever or even acquire them illgally!

    Probably £10 a year max, usually in the first couple of months when I find a premium app I like, then almost never again.

    Never spent a penny on apps or games, plenty of free 1's out there (Carmageddon free for today only)

    69p once or twice a month. Occasionally a big more. Similar sort of frequency to my steam PC purchases.

    Re: Features - QOTW: How much do you spend on apps?

    Never spend so much per month, more like when an app comes that I want/need/like that I buy.

    Not a game player on my blackberry 9900 but play them on my PlayBook.

    A lot of the free ones are quite good actually, meet all my requirements.

    Not buying that huggies app though.... Stupid.
