Took advantage of every single one of those... lol :P

Now, when I get my Nexus I will have a bunch of cool new apps to use, assuming they have been updated to support ICS.

Ha, I just bought them all, which is funny considering that my work pays for my cell phone bill anyway, so technically they are free if I purchase them from my phone and charge them to my Sprint bill yet I bought them over my computer and charged my credit card cause 1) I guess I'm lazy and 2) It cost me less than a $1.00 so why not! :)

This is a chance to actually support the devs. This way we can have better and better apps on the market.

I agree where you stand with trying to make developers money, but I don't suppose you buy every song you can to support musicians do you? It's like an oxy moron (not sure how to spell that) to pick and choose who you steal from.

C'mon Dmann everyone's doin it!

In that, you are right. I don´t buy all songs, but I'm not much of a music listener.

And that doesn´t justifies keeping the same behaviour in everything.

For instance, if there is a new indie band I like, and want it to succeed, I would buy their songs to help them.

And I still go to the movies as much as I can. For the ones I don´t think is worth it, I download. Our Netflix has only old movies so is a no go.

Just saying that some supporting is better then no supporting. And c´mon dude, it´s 10 cents an app.

I agree. $.10 isn't much.

Maybe I am just jealous I can't even download any apps (good apps) because my Nexus broke and I am stuck with a Blackberry 9700 until my GS2 get's here.

Since my GS2 is free I will most likely spend a bit on apps.

BTW these new Bold's they just released have some major touch screen issues.

stealing from madonna who has already made millions on millions and stealing from the guy that probably made the app in his spare time as a second income are the same thing. .but they are not. madonna can also tour and sell merchandise and make millions that way. the app maker cant.
it takes a long time to learn to code and make a great app.

Stealing is stealing. You are using personal judgement to justify who deserves what.

I'm sure she started in her moms basement making videos and had to acheive gold by putting effort into her work. If the developer devoted more time into making a better app or more apps his income would go up, then would it justify you stealing an app from him because he is making more money? No, they are the same thing one person is just more successful due to the amount they worked and how much effort they put forth into it.

$0.10 is pretty much free. If you can spend 100s of $$$ on a new phone, don't be a cheap ass for good software.
