How many paid apps on your phone and/or tablet? quote:

I wonder how many paid apps (man, I hate that word) people have on their phones and/or tablets.

I have exactly one, the Geocaching.com application, and I have renewed my premium subscription there annually for a few years now as it's a hobby of mine that I quite enjoy.

No other application (program) has even come remotely close to have me pay for it and I could probably do geocaching without their program on my phone but it just makes things a bit easier than using their web site on my phone.

So what paid apps do y'all have and how many?

None I think. Very rarely have I paid for an app or spent money for in app purchases. And when I have it's been for stupid spur of the moment for some random games. Never more than $5 in any given time though.

We're all paying anyways, with user data being sold and ads. Nothing is really free.

I've only paid for two apps: a workout app which I don't even use any more and Swype, which was eventually replaced with the Google keyboard when that functionality became native to it.

I also paid the Whatsapp subscription for a couple years before it became free.

I've got like $16 in Google credits from doing those surveys and I can't even find any apps to spend it on.

Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

I bought the tomtom app back in the day for like 30 bucks. Lifetime updates.

Have made great use of it over the years.

Aside from that not much... I really hate the subscription apps i would rather pay one price personally.

For the App itself, torque pro and nine email (fuck you exchange mail).

In the app? Maybe a dozen more for a few bucks.

Probably ~5, but never paid with cash, I use the Google Opinion Rewards app and racked up about $20 in credit there in a year. Every few days it pops up with a 1-3 question survey about a place it thinks you've been, takes like 20 seconds to answer and you earn ~20-40 cents each time (more for longer surveys which are rare).
