    1. I regularly go through the "featured" apps to try out the best available
    2. I only use "search" option and carefully read through the description and reviews to find what will suit my needs best
    3. I get informed on what's trending via online forums, iMore
    4. I only install an app if a friend recommends it

    Me, too. And when I tire of them, I just delete them from my devices.

    If I think the app will benefit me productivity-wise, and I agree on its price, then I'll buy it/download & install it. If my son(s) want me to participate in a multiplayer game then I'll install it. Furthermore, when I have the time, I'll install and test various apps that were recommended by either the blog team or the iMore members.

    I just let them pile up and go on a deleting and cleanup spree every once in a while.

    Screenshots for me. You can instantly see if the app is what you're looking for. I mostly download games for me and kids.

    I usually search for the type of app I'm after - say relaxation app - then look through the various feedback for each app & download a trial/free version before deciding on which full app to buy.
    Same goes for any app which looks to be one I'd use - check feedback & download trial/free version to test it.

    1. Needful
    2. Useful
    3. Fun
    4. Affordable

    I do read the descriptions and the reviews. I take the reviews with a grain of salt. And I've learned to spot when a dev is padding the reviews.

    i've only bought one paid app in my whole life and i have, like, 10 screens of apps on my iphone. so most likely free. then, i install pretty much every app in my vertical to keep track of competition. other than that, twitter/facebook groups for app discovery/elsewhere online but i almost never look up apps in the app store.

    If it sounds like it has what I'm looking for and I like the screenshots, I download it and try it. If it's not what I'm looking for, I delete it.

    If I find an app or game I like I will then check similar apps or clones to see if there is a version out there that might work better for me or in the case of games a version that is more fun.

    I decide the game by its screenshots、customer reviews、customer ratings and judgement on the Internet. That's why I choose Z Fighters.

    Title and Image. I am a big Zombie fan. any new game I come across that has Zombies in the title or image. Then again, when looking for games I go by search and by popularity. But the main decision happens on title and images

    I use iMore to decide what to give a go. If it's a free app and sounds interesting I'll download it and give it a try, if it's a paid app I'll add it to my wish list to read the description, reviews.

    Sometimes I'll use the carousel on the featured page or categories.
