☆ On The Cost of Apps

Normally when an application costs more than $2.99, I have to stop and mull it over for a few weeks (not kidding). However, when it came to Day One, I didn’t hesitate for a second at the $9.99 price tag[1].

Note: I’m not one to spend my life worrying about money, but I don’t waste it either.

If there was a way to figure out how much money I’ve spent on iOS apps, I don’t want to know about it. The truth is: I’ve spent a sh*t-ton of money on apps – and a good amount of them I never use.

Heck – I have 10+ ‘to-do’ list apps and I struggle to use one of them (can’t give up the ‘ol trusty pen & paper).

I could say sit here and say I buy these apps because I like supporting developers (which I do), but that’s a lie.

I’m a sucker for a well-designed UI and a great-looking icon – but that’s not it either.

The truth is I don’t know why I spend this much money on apps.

All I do know is that you’ll never catch me balking at price of software these days – and that I have 425 too many apps on my phone.


1. Truth is, I did hesitate for a second (it’s only habit).
