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

    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?

    I think I've paid for 4 apps since first owning a smartphone. The only one I can remember at the moment is Textra, becauae my native messaging app's sucked balls.

    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.

    I have a handful of work ones that I paid for. The kids OTOH...

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

    Hmm, other than Blue Iris, I can't think of one I've paid for.

    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).
