    I would guess the free apps constitute 95% of that number, but its just a guess. (also probably at least 10% are probably the person downloading the same app again if it didn't install right the first time, or they tried it, deleted it, and wanted it back, etc)

    Did you install apps yet? How many free vs paid? Do you regret buying apps?

    I have downloaded 9 and deleted 1 just too see how that worked. All are free, though I will definitely get some paid apps when I find a some good reviews of something special...and have more time, was busy this weekend =)

    I have only downloaded FREE apps, until they have some kind of demo/trail worked out I CAN NOT get any paid apps, I just cant do it, like the 129308 FREE ones I have downloaded, a good %age gets deleted. Until they come out with demo/trails or one that I NEED, you won't see me paying for any apps.

    You found 37 apps you like?

    Geez, I went through all 27 pages on the first day and only noted about 10-15 that seemed like they might be useful if executed well, and then maybe 5 games I would like to try.

    Of course there's almost 300 more since Thursday afternoon....

    So far the only app I've downloaded is eReader which is free. I plan on getting more including paid ones. I just haven't decided yet which ones to get.

    can you edit a poll?

    ...wanted to add a "I paid for apps and think their totally worth it"/"I paid for apps and regret it" options.

    In a Hell predominately of my own making
    I've d/l'd over a dozen, all but one (Zen garden) were free. Deleted about three of the free ones already.

    I'd bet over 80% of the 10M downloads were free.

    Bother someone because I didn't think my poll through? Nah, I'll just add it to the post.
