Why do people buy paid apps when free ones offers same/better features?
There are loads of paid todo/notepad/sketch/drawing/news reader etc. apps in appstore when there are similar featured free ones.
Why do people buy those paid apps? Is it because people do not bother to search in app store properly??
PS: I understand there are some paid apps which are quite unique but I'm mainly talking about general purpose apps.
Free apps are a good start
I have owned the IPAD for four months and have downloaded many apps...I pay for them outright when there is no free version...but always try the free version first...if it meets all my needs I don't look for the better mouse trap.
Of some 30 apps purchased, I have only been disappointed with features in paid upgrades once or twice....they are usually much better/more versatile than the free app.
Playing the IPAD apps is a fun game of research and due-diligence that pays off.
