I see in these threads, one of the main reasons for being hesitant to switch platforms(mainly iOS to Android) is paying for the same apps again. So how much has everyone spent on mobile apps? For myself on Android, I would say I've spent a lifetime of around $50 on apps. On iOS, it's also around the same. The majority of which I do not even use today. I'd figure most of the app store earning come from Games. And the highest priced apps are specialized, business, or educational apps. The best sellers are from $0.99 - $5.00. My switch from iPhone to Android probably cost me $10 at the most to recover the apps I still wanted to use. Then you have iOS Jailbroken apps, which I probably spent $5 at the most on. On Android, the Amazon app store has saved me a ton with free apps that would cost in the Play Store, and a ton of points that I can buy paid apps with. The Samsung Galaxy app store also has free apps and offers that would cost in the Play Store. I rarely make in app purchases to get rid of ads or enable features. When I do, it's only because I'm grateful for the app. Windows Phone and Blackberry users can chime in too.
