  3. This is a cool idea for a poll topic. If more people buy my game, I will be able to support my fellow developers more with their sales. ;)

    Is it strictly for games we bought?
    1. Does it count if we got the games when they were free? eg: biiball, scoops.
    2. What about games we got from promo codes?

    You have to "buy" a game to download it from Apple.. so that would include free games.

    Before I found this site it was under 20..

    I am surprised close to 1/2 the people here don't download more of the lite/free/promo code versions these games.

    I stopped counting after about 30, but I'm pretty safe in guessing that I'm over 51, especially since the list is obviously incomplete. For example, Chillingo has more games, and Skyward Games also did Gold Rush. Don't get me wrong - I'm not picking on the list, as I'm sure a lot of hard work went into it. It's just that I had to take omissions into account when tallying my software :)

    While I'm thinking about it, here are a couple more (sorry, don't have time to look up developers right now):

    Parallelus
    Codename Lone Wolf

    In 6 months of iPhownership, I've spent US $108 (+ tax) on the App Store. That's neearly all games (many from here) except for Chain Timer, Ambiance and Jaadu VNC (my most expensive app at $25, and well worth it). And when I look at my wish-list of upcoming purchases, it's heavily weighted toward devs on here.

    I'm not an addict--I only get a FEW more games than I have time to thoroughly play :)

    Of that $108, I feel that about $6 was "wasted:" a couple one-dollar games that I just don't play, and couple of games that I do enjoy some, but probably wouldn't have bought again unless they were a little cheaper. I don't count money "wasted" just because an app's price drops later, as long as I do enjoy it enough to be worth the higher price. (Besides, I've often been on the happy end of that situation, paying less before I price INcrease.)

    $6 out of $108 is not bad! Thanks to reviews, YouTube videos, this site, and simply having broad tastes!

    Here's how I figure out my total: I just searched my email for "itunes" and "seller"--because music and videos don't state the word "seller" in the email receipts. Then I paged through the search results with down-arrow, and added up what I saw. Only took about 2 minutes.

    It's interesting going back through my history. Some apps I think of as being free I realize I actually paid for, and some apps I could swear I paid for I got for free! And I can see the evolution in where I'm willing to put my money.
