    I have paid for many, many apps (more than I care to count). I abhor ads in my apps. If it's an app that I will use, I will purchase an IAP to remove the ads. If no such IAP exists (or no ad-free paid equivalent exists), the app generally doesn't last long on my device.

    I have paid for 3 or 4 apps in total.
    After using TomTom illegally for 2 years I decided to buy it. And I've paid for Tapatalk Pro because it was (and still is) the app I use the most.
    I can't remember others I purchased at this moment. However, I don't JB my phone since almost 2 years so the rest of my 130-something apps are free apps

    Yes if the app as advertised. Also try the freebie first

    I have a lot of both paid and free apps on my phone. What I normally do is pick up an iTunes card when they go on sale around the holidays and then put it on my account. If I find an app that I want or one that goes on sale, I'll buy it with the credit. That way I'm still getting a deal because I didn't pay full price for the iTunes card. Win-Win!
    You should also try Coinstar if you have one near you. Loose change converted to iTunes

    I suppose I buy quite a few apps. I never really bought many android apps but I tend to buy a lot from the App Store.

    I'll try an app with Ads... if I like the app, I'll spring for an ad-free option if available... if not, I'll might put up with the ads, or just ditch the app.
    pretty much how i feel too. if i find it too annoying or intrusive, and its an app ill use a lot, ill pay for it within reason.

    Very rarely on games, but quite often on productive apps. Game wise, only when friends recommended. I tends to switching app too often to think my investment are worth it.

    I have resided on both sides of the spectrum; both gleefully paying for applications in full from the respective app stores and rooting/jailbreaking to obtain apps for free. If the apps are not offered at a paid level and are ad-supported, I have often ventured into the realm of ad-blockers to free up screen real estate.

    I am personally avoiding freemium applications now because I cannot support a business model that provides artificial enhancement and advantages over non-paying members to those that have disposable income where they can freely plop $50 into a tank fighting game to build an armada of vehicles winning match after match.

    If the free app is ad-free but limits functionality to provide you with a way to try the app and support it only if you like it / need the additional features, I'm down for that.

    Many free apps I have gotten are for my kids. If they are good apps, and the kids like them, buying the ad-free version is a must. If not, they are always accidentally hitting the ads.
