Over $200 myself. Not a big deal considering the apps that i've purchased have either helped with my productivity, access to information, or entertained me. worth the $$$

I haven't kept track, but I've probably spent over $200. I just got Beejive for $16, and I've bought several apps around that price. I've bought a bunch of games and utilities for around $5-10, so yeah, I'm probably around $200-250.

I've bought a few clunkers along the way, but the cost is low enough that I don't mind experimenting. I like seeing all these little "mom and pop" (ok, mostly "pop") developers submit applications. I hope one of these little guys ends up an 800lb gorilla of the industry some day.

I'm impressed by how much people are spending.Apple knew they were onto a good thing with this. It's just too easy to browse and impulse buy apps (not that I'm complaining).
I'm sure their music sales would double if the music store was available on cellular.

Newsstand - 4.99
Galcon - 4.99
Real Deal Slots - 4.99
Texas Hold'em - 4.99
Tanzen - 0.99

21 bucks. Money very well spent. I use Newsstand all the time, also Galcon... I don't recommend the slots and tanzen because it gets boring after awhile. For some reason I'm stingy on buying apps since alot of free apps workout well for me.

Sep 29, 2008, 08:26 PM
Most of the apps our household downloaded were free. We just added it up and the rest came to $475.96.:eek: We purchased most of the apps that made it into the top 50 "the hard way" (no free-to-paid). We now have a moratorium on app purchases, although Kroll may need to be an exception. I've already started working on the appaholics app.:)

I'm not sure of the exact specifics, but its in the range of $150-180. 90% of the paid apps, I personally think they're worth their price.

Its amazing considering I paid $200 for my phone, and near $200 for just its applications. Still, it's an amazing platform, so I have no regrets whatsoever on spending as much as I did.

Boy, those little numbers sure add up.

I know. The scenario for me is like

"Oh it has good reviews, looks cool, only for less than US$5, might as well get it"

Next day...

"Huge sale on this app, might as well get since it's only a buck.."

So on and so forth then when you go over all of your receipts you'll be :eek:

Wow, those numbers *do* add up! I just tallied mine, and it's about $52! Of that, about $14 worth was a total waste of money.

However, that $52 includes 2 bigger-ticket apps (Scrabble and Spreadsheet, which were each almost $8) so if you subtract those and just look at the dollar or so impulse buys, it's much more reasonable.

Ikanoid ... $1 (which I don't play anymore, glitches when I am having a good session)
Mach Dice ... $1 (well worth it with the update)
Moto Chaser ... $1 (don't play this either, wouldn't have bought it if it weren't $1)
Platinum Solitaire ... $3
Sketches ... $1 (but I still use the Notes app)
Solitaire Top 3 ... $3 (Platinum Solitaire is better because it has goals but this game is good enough)
Splash ID ... $10 (had this on my old Treo wasn't going to get another smart phone without it)
TanZen ... $1 (game I play most, great time killer)
Trism ... $5 (great game)
ZEN Pinball: Rolleroaster ... $5 (first app I bought, also showed me that the shopping cart wasn't being used)
Blackjack Multi-hand ... $3 (enjoy this slightly more than 21 pro because of the gestures, 21 pro does look better though)
21 Pro: Blackjack ... $1


... $39, mostly because of AppShopper and its price changes section
