    Hello my name is Wegmans, and I'm an Appaholic. I constantly search for the next thing to buy, and will probably easily end up spending $365 a year/ $1 per day. Some days/weeks I won't buy anything, then i'll splurge on something $9.99 so it seems to even out. Even right now I was looking to buy Paradise, but decided against it! I thought i better let someone know!

    Hey guys my names Doug and I'm an Appaholic. I think I've already spent over 300 dollars on apps and I've only had my ipod for 3 months. It's kinda sad. Everyday I get home from school, play cod4, then go on my touch and play games and buy more games. I'm addicted. My friends call me.. Iwillneverbetouched. Please, you gotta help me out here.

    All right class, now lets talk about how we can become better friends!
    Is this thread somewhat like an anger management class?

    I've been trying to wait for reviews (2-3 days) before getting an app... usually the first 5 or so that influence my decision are probably best friends with the Dev and so they skew the ratings..

    The latest medical alternative to buying apps...
    Free apps.

    The first about four months that I had my iPod Touch, I spent around $350+ on apps and games. I just bought everything that I thought I would need pretty much and at one point I had at least 85 of the apps that were on the top 100 games. I've now spent almost $500 on apps, but I'm doing better.

    I've only spent about $27 this month which is excellent considering all the great games that have come out so far. I'm hoping to almost completely stop buying games by 2009 so I can finally buy a $2,000 iMac.:eek:

    I've decided against buying several games already and App Sniper is helping me out a lot.

    Anyway, I think I'm on my way to stop my addiction of buying apps. :);)
