I do pay for apps. I currently have 10 paid apps and few paid icon packs. One of my criteria's was for them to have sdcard support. I don't mind paying since its a onetime fee for multiple devices and future phones.

No.Not at all... :) :D

I just install apks externally,I am an Android Developer,and don't see any points in wasting bucks at the Google Play Store,if I can install them even without root access (albeit,I have root access on my Canvas HD)... :) ;)

I don't mind paying for apps. They are usually cheaper than a coffee and I've paid for coffee that doesn't taste very good. I'm an Android Developer and an open source enthusiast. I used to donate 10% of my monthly income to open source projects that contribute to my every day life.

Hey AndroidPIT readers,

How many of you actually pay for apps, or do you only download free apps? What are the key factors you look for before buying the app?

Also, are there any apps you bought which you wished you havn't?

Hi,
Yes I will pay for any app, but several things I will keep in my mind before paying for a mobile app. I will ask some questions like:
1. Is it helpful for me?
2. Is this mobile app important for me?
3. It is easy to use?
4. Does this support advanced platform?
3. How it is beneficial for me?
4. Should I really pay for this app?
I will analyze all the above things that how a mobile application good for me.
If I will get satisfactory answer then I will buy any mobile app.

Actually, I don't mind to pay for an app or two, but most of my apps are free. The key factor is whether I can find a free equivalent with the same features :)

Never pay for apps or in-app purchases.

Except WhatsApp. And despite the low cost, I resent paying for a subscription to any messaging service when there are dozens of others available for free!

Nope!You need a credit card I think to buy apps.I don't have one.And I don't like Ads either.I've deleted Google Play Books because I couldn't get any free books without handing out details of my non-existent credit card.

I don't mind paying up-front, but I can't stand free apps with in-app purchases, especially the games which you can't beat without paying!

Nope, never pay for applications, i just use torrent so that means i am using paid applications but don't pay for it ;), But sometime some applications doesn't work on torrent so at the end if the app really useful to me i would like to pay for it.
