people still pay for apps?:rolleyes:


Of course they do. Those who want to support the developers for the hard work. Some people make a living off those apps, mind you.

Very few developers will work for free.

If you don't pay anything upfront, developers will usually have alternative business models, like showing you ads, mining your data, spamming you with IAP offers...

I, by far, prefer the former business model: Pay a cheap price upfront, then get treated like a respected customer. What's $2 for an app when people gladly pay $60+/month for their smartphone plan? It also wasn't that long ago that people paid $30-40 a pop for simple Game Boy games.

Many others already beat me to it.

The only thing that wasn't already said is that you're an idiot commenter who thinks he's cool for replying first.

I too would rather pay and know what I'm buying, rather than getting nasty surprises with ads popping up every few seconds..

There's some good looking apps here and I'm going to check a few of them out

Pirating is something to brag about? Majority of apps in the App Store are under $5, don't be a cheapskate. Haha.

On topic, Launch and Clear are must-haves for me. Incredible apps.

You buy an app in its condition, if/ when developer updates/ changes/ screws up the app, well, nothing you can do, your money is wasted...
For this reason I will not buy an app...
You should have a choice to remain/ keep the original app if you want to as you paid for it...


[LIST=1]
[*]Don't update the app.
[*]Keep backups.
[*]There is no step 3.

Anyone else feel ripped off after buying Launch Center Pro?

The description says iPhone and iPad, but after buying it and running it on the iPad it is in compatibility mode. If you REALLY want iPad support it's another $2.

I understand the need to charge separately, I just wish I had been told up front that this was an iPhone only app.

It's 2 bucks, I know, get over it. Just feeling misled.

Why we don't get 7 day trial, if your app is good, I'll keep it, it it sucks I'll should be able to return just like many other goods...
For this reason I purchase very, very rarely.
