    I cannot justify paying $1.99 for the most part! I could purchase $0.99 games all day but when I find one for only a dollar more I can't bring myself to it! :p Is anyone else like this?

    No way. I don't even balk at $5 if it is a good, useful app.

    Incidentally, I didn't pick an answer in your poll because none of them applied to me.

    Well... utilities and such are a bit different. Still though, for the most part, it's hard for me, haha.

    Also, the second option is all in jest, it boils down to Yes, No, and N/A. :p

    I never even buy apps, I only have one page of them right now and use probably 1/3 of them. I used to buy tons of apps when I had an iPod Touch but now that I use Spotify I don't have any reason to buy an iTunes card.

    Depends on the app and how badly I want it/need it. I definitely try to limit myself to $0.99 games, but for photography stuff, I'll reach deeper into my pockets.

    Anything above $5.99 is when I start balking. Unless it can prove it's worth in the preview screenshots.

    What, they didn't mention the double-ply cotton-soft feature? You have to turn on panorama for it to work. The $%*& goes well with the new Maps app.

    I'd pay $19.99 for an official Google Maps app.

    I find that the oleophobic glass results in the 'stuff' sliding clean off. Nowhere near as efficient as bills.

    Rolls are a bit fussy, I prefer separated bills personally. Here's my toilet paper stash in the small cupboard in my washroom:

    For extra thickness I usually grab one stack for each wipe.

    Why? Someone from Google confirmed one has already been submitted and I highly doubt it will cost.

    1 year later and I still feel exactly the same. Hate when apps are more than $0.99 lol.

    No, I can understand that buying 2 $0.99 apps are the same as buying 1 $1.99 app. I can also hazard a pretty good guess that you didn't buy your phone or pay for your cell phone bill.

    I'm 22, I live on my own, support myself solely, have a Bachelor's in healthcare management and am starting graduate school and then the PA program. I'm doing pretty well for my age. I'll forgive your irrational comment since you are a fellow DP fan. BTW, B&N has I5555 on bluray for $12!

    I always find it funny that I'll spend hours reading reviews of .99 cent apps, but I'll spend that much in a vending machine without thinking twice. Those M&Ms will be gone in a few minutes...while that app will sit on my phone in perpetuity.

    You spent $200+ on a phone, pay a monthly bill of over $75, can't bring yourself to pay $2 for an app [when you already spend more than that on multiple apps per day] and I'm the irrational one? Ok then... [thanks for the 5555 tip!]

    Perhaps you don't have a job?

    Ever pay for coffee? Pay for a restaurant meal? Pay insurance? Pay rent? Etc. They are all more than $0.99.

    I can't pay for an app, no matter how good it is, I can't.

    I don't mind buying apps because it enhances the iPhone experience. If the app is good and useful, I have no problem paying for it.

    The most expensive app I bought was 1Password.

    I can't even bring myself to pay $.99. I only have free apps.

    I'm the opposite if the OP. I've typically not been impressed with the cheap apps and deleted them right away. Waste of money. I have other apps that I've used for hundreds of hours. I would gladly pay $20 for those instead.

    Avoiding paying for smartphone apps is like buying a car and refusing to pay for gas.
