I added up what I’d spent on apps last month and it came as a bit of a shock! So, is your app store habit out of control or have you made tough decisions on what to buy and what not to?

Any good suggestions for taming my habit gratefully received.

  1. I am an app addict (mostly music and photography apps) so to budget myself I stopped using my credit card for purchases and switched to buying iTunes Gift Cards. I'm trying to stick to $50 per month or less … a habit it is but better than drugs and this is one habit that I don't feel bad about.

  2. I probably average around $20 (AU)/month, though hexatone and sunvox will make it higher this month.

    I've got many apps I haven't spent enough time with, so I'm trying to track my wishlist on appshopper rather than just buying everything.

    The app store is great retail therapy; I treat myself to a few $1 apps now and again for the chance to play with something new. Cheap!

  3. I spend way too much. Vacation meant too much time to drool and click “buy app”. Appshopper and apptism (I think) have wishlist features and price alerts too.
