    I regularly throw down $5-10 for quality and faithful digital reproductions of Euro Board games.

    Seeing iOS and the App Store succeeding as strong platforms restores my faith in humanity. I'm confident about investing in iOS because Apple provides for a curated experience that is essentially the only effective way to manage both rogue software and piracy.

    I'm totally fine with spending money on supporting developers that don't go down the "freemium" route.

    Android users, meanwhile, are the least likely to pay for software, at just 6 cents per download ? less than a third of what iPhone owners pay, and more than eight times less than the average spent by iPad users.

    I really wish people would stop using ridiculous nomenclature to make things sound impressive.

    The iPad gets $0.50 per app. What would "8 times less" than $0.50 be? Well, 8 times $0.50 is $4.00, so 8 times less would be negative $3.50 per app - so someone would have to pay you $3.50 every time you downloaded an app.

    Correct wording would be to say that Android generates 1/8 as much revenue per app as the iPad - or 87% less. Or to say that Apple generates 7 times more revenue per app. Or 8 times as much revenue per app.
