I’ve been buying apps in Google Play or the Android Market, since I was first allowed to, the initial rollout of purchased apps was pretty rocky with Telstra and Vodafone first allowing app purchases way before Optus. My first Android app purchase was on the 1st of June, 2010 and was called My Collection Pro, it doesn’t even appear to be on Google Play now, I don’t think I’ve installed it in at least a couple of years, but at the time it felt good to have purchased an app.
Over the last three years I’ve spent around AUD $240 on apps alone, this is minus movies, music, books, magazines and hardware and even then it’s only a rough estimate because up until early 2011 – around March/April – prices were in the local currency so I can’t get an exact estimate. If you’re interested in how much you’ve spent over the years, head over to wallet.google.com and check it out, but remember this also includes books, music, magazines, music and of course hardware.
