I need to stay away from the app store. Apple has made it really easy and intuitive to buy something and use it in a matter of seconds :/ I must have purchased at least 50 apps so far and it's never going to end.........anyone else have this problem?
I have an AppStore addiction problem. The only good thing about it is that 95% of the apps I download are free!
I have paid for a few apps. If the app appears to be good, has good reviews (3-1/2 stars or higher), and if I need it, I'll pay for it.
The "if I need it" phrase is key.
By the way, my ratio of "free downloaded apps-to-deleted apps" is about 75%. In other words, I've since deleted about 3/4 of the free apps I downloaded. Either I got tired of them, or they simply became unstable, or I haven't used them in weeks.
The really good thing about having had a Blackberry first is with a Blackberry, you had to be careful to not waste space and resources with useless apps. That habit has carried over even though the iPhone has plenty of room for lots of useless apps if one was so inclined. I also can't justify spending money on apps I don't really need.
I have 11 apps that I felt I had to have, and they are all free. I won't mind spending money on an app if I feel I have to have it, but so far, all the apps I had to have were free.
