    The free versions are usually to introduce you to the app and either have limitations not found in the paid version, or have distracting ads.

    If its an app that I know I need function wise and it's a paid one, I will just buy it. If its an app that I think could prove productive for me but has a free version I will try it and if it works out I will then purchase it. So, I chose free with paid opt for my vote.

    I love the try before you buy option on majority of apps!

    I don't bother with free apps unless they are paid apps gone free for a limited time (or very useful apps available free only); too many cases of ads eating up my data (and thus battery) and apps collecting info they don't need. I basically with a few exceptions refuse to use IAP simply because I want to discourage it.
