No it won't show my total, it just shows every app I have ever purchased.

28.51 (euros, not dollars!)

Having Super Monkey Ball (7,99), Aqua Forest (5,99) SpiN (4,99) and Galcon (3,99) making up for 23 euros...
Then there are Enigmo and Subway Shuffle for 1,59 euros and Topple, DuckDuckDuck and Touch Physics for 0,79.
(Yeah duckduckduck might not seem all that great but I love rubber ducks ;) )

how hard could it be, round off the to the nearest dollar or currency then you have a pretty accurate total...

well my total is usually just 0.99... biggest purchase PER receipt is 5.98. :cool:

btw... i have great apps like:

cromag
blue skies
enigmo
aqua forrest
fire drop
air sharing etc..

0,79 euro is 1,00488 dollar so in the end you'd have inconsistencies when adding them up. People can just generally add 25% to the euro's amount to get dollars (or lower the dollar amount by 20% to get the approximate euro amount).

I'd say: keep two colums. :)

Yep! Please add Aussie dollars.

This was scary :eek:. I already knew I'm spending way too much on apps. Mostly games but some other useful ones too (like eWallet).

My total is AUS$167.29

As far as comparing this to someone who buys in US $, the prices are not a direct translation of the exchange rate. When the prices were set in the Australian store the Aussie dollar was almost at a pare with the US dollar. Now it has fallen dramatically. I'm dreading what will happen if Apple reprice the Australian iTunes store due to the currency drop. It's going to be only free apps for me...

God, my first month after buying my 3G iPhone I spend almost $100 bucks downloading the games!

Mind you, I'm not earning $USD so to convert to my country currency I've paid SGD$200+. And now, 3 mths on, I'm still buying and already almost reaching SGD$400!! :eek:

It took just over 60 days from the launch of the app store for me to spend more on apps for my phone than I spent on the phone itself.

Granted, I make a habit of trying to support developers of games/apps I appreciate. After iFishing was released, I bought Blue Skies just to support the author. I have done the same with other app companies - make one app I really like and have good support for it - I may just buy the rest of your apps to help support you - regardless of if I want them or not.

This total doesn't include the hundreds I have spent on music tagged with Shazam, found on Pandora or at restaurants I have found with Urban Spoon.

I realize for me that there may actually be about $1,000/year "iPhone" tax. (And I couldn't be happier) Especially since I just bought my wife an iPhone last week..

I'm not going to add you to the list if they are all cracked apps. But if you have 220 free app store apps, then ok :) It's not some sort of ethical thing, but it just gives inconsistent data since you're using a different method

I am proud to say I have spent under one hundred US $(US $86.59) on apps. regarding my total iTunes receipt, its probably not much more because of a program called Bittorrent. When i think of the $86 I've spent, it is a lot of money, but some of the games I like more than platform games(even tho i don't have any gaming systems), and games for gaming systems are a hell of a lot more $. This total is soon to increase with NFS and shooters coming out, can't wait for those.

but I got a 200 dollar iTunes card for 50 bucks on ebay so I'm more spend happy than I normally would be. (still have a hundred bucks left too after buying a movie and a cd)
however, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS! I found out after the fact that crooks sell cards on ebay that may wind up disabling your iTunes account.
so I figure I should spend it while I got it....

To date I've spent $53.02 in Canadian dollars (including tax) which had approximate parity to the US Dollar since the iPhone launched (though has dropped quite a bit in the last month). About 1/3 of my total is from file and mapping utilities though.

Someone should make this a poll, with options for <$10, <$25, <$50, <$75, <$100, and >$150. Would be interesting to see the results.

I have well over 200 apps in iTunes...I don't know monetary-wise how much this equates to. I've ended up buying iTunes giftcards to "control" my spending which is working alright, I guess. One way to look at it, is that I hope friends and family are asking for candy bars this year for Christmas! :D

46.87 so far (~$72)

Most expensive ones were rock'n'roll which I bought on the day it came out, and then it went free (GRRR), moto chaser (which I never play) and puzzlemaniac (which I play every day).

Most recent paid purchases were dizzy bee, Hamster House, VirtualPool and Snail Mail.

I'm afraid to look but I'm going to guess at least 200, maybe $250 :S

[Edit] I just checked and I've spent almost $350 on apps this year. *Holy crap!* I really need to delete my iTunes account and just quit buying stuff till I've finished the games I have!!! :S

Still more than I planned for.

I have spent about 20 which is pretty good considering the many apps I have because I waited for price drops of for it to become free :P

Close to $600 now but finally got a free promo copy of Smiles (first and only iphone game ever got for free). It's a great game btw and will add to my list of best games. In process of putting together Best Japanese iPhone Apps and asking for promo copies for those ones since that's about $250 worth of apps to review. Still will try to remain impartial as much as humanly possible though.

In early October 08 I had spent 65.00

Today's total looks roughly like 296.15.

Most of this was buying 59p - 5.99 applications to review,
before promo codes were introduced.

Wow, I have bought loads of apps and my total is only 39.84 and I have 80 credit in iTunes. Actually it's 25% off that total in real money as I got the iTunes gift cards on offer. I'm not spending enough! Come on Rolando so I can spend some money.

Week 1 (2 weeks ago) - Bike or Die 2 - 1.79

Week 3 - SPiN and Wave Blazer - 1.19 in total

When its christmas though.... >:)

What's the easiest way to access your shopping history on iTunes?You can do that of course, but each "series" of purchases is divided up into separate billing links.. and I have 5 pages of billing links since July 11. I would have to click and go through nearly 100 billing pages, then add up JUST the applications?

No thanks.

It might work if ALL you buy is Apps, but if you ever buy Songs or TV shows or rent Movies, and just tallied up the "totals", then your amount spent on apps is dead wrong, and if that's the case, the list is flawed.

The list is flawed regardless, since hardly anyone is giving an accurate total. But it's not like it's 100% necessary.

I've spent $71.62 CAD (not including taxes) on 38 apps since September.

I've been keeping a spreadsheet with all of my app purchases to make sure I don't go completely insane. (I'm also keeping a tally of "wasted" money, i.e. money spent on apps that I uninstalled because they turned out to be crap or because they were replaced by another app. Luckily that total is only at $8.91 so far.)

12-09-2008, 11:11 AM
I've spent $78.82 USD.

I'm not gonna go through an list all of 'em :D

Not TOO bad, considering I got my iPhone 3G back in July. About $13 a month spent on games and apps. And I haven't really bought an app yet that I regret getting. Whenever I'm about to buy a game or app, I read a boatload of reviews first, both professional and app store reviews.

I've only spent $9.99 on one game (BIA) this month. Maybe another $9.99 when Rolando or NFS comes out. Not sure which one yet, but I'm not going over $15 a month. Maybe NGMOCO will sell Rolando at $4.99. :D

12-09-2008, 11:53 AM
169 yoyos (works out today about 218 USD).

Actually less than I expected! I've probably spent more than that on console games in the last week! :)

idrisguitar
12-09-2008, 12:02 PM
i spent 15 pounds, before getting a $200 itunes gift card for the US store.

basically meanin i am set for MONTHS :D

the only ten dollar game i can see myself getting is rolando and a top class racer. (haven;t got one yet and will wait till end of december before i decide which one i go for)

the rest will prob be casual addictive games $5 or less. (okay and maybe real soccer 2009 ;))

games like freznic, dr awesome, bike or die 2, line rider, fieldrunners, galcon all seem like games that i will play most days for a month or more. whereas most $10 games are trying to be like the psp and in that fall to have a long playtime even if they are technically impressive.

but to sum up. i will buy games like i buy console games. and wont go for the any game that is over $5 unless i think will stay on my ipod touch for more than two weeks.

but yeah with that gift card i dont expect any money to come out of my bank till summer 2009 ;)

This week I got Tiki Towers, Frenzic and Dropship together for Eur 3,19, and then Rolando made me go from a total of Eur 38,04 to Eur 46,03.

This is across 17 games, so I paid ~ Eur 2,70 per game, and there are also several games I got for free that are now paid. It's quite cool when I see an update to an app that I got for free, and then I go to the product page to check what's new, and then see that the game is now paid. :P

I've spent around 400 or more, shocking I know on just apps, but I'm
An addict for it.

Apple need to give us more than just 9 pages, espeially when their own junk takes up 1 of them.

I've had to delete paid apps to make room.

Also, thx to chase and toucharcade, I've now found twitter.

I triple checked the math... and in 5 pages of broken down sales batches, I've got a running total (including the most recent of 36.00) $631.90


I make a LOT of impulse buys. I do however have zero open spots on my phone, and in my iTunes library (both free and pay) I have a total of 337 applications. At one point, I wanted to do nice detailed reviews of the games and apps I was getting on iTunes, but I keep forgetting when I get the next distraction, and then when I look back and there's like 100 things to review I'm like "psh no way". It's kind of funny, I'm my office iPhone app tester, seeing as everyone around here is so cheap they just play new games on my phone.


Wow, I need to chill out on buying stuff.

12-19-2008, 04:13 PM
Spent 197$ ---its all these goofy apps that I just want to try and then I erase them ---so I just bought a new 1G touch so I jailbreak it and use it for all the educational and entertainment apps --- I have already saved a tonne by doing so!

i tend to buy all new games, play some for ages, some for a bit and some hardly at all, and end up deleting those.

i like new games, and to be honest id rather buy an iphone one that i can play anywhere, than an expensive ps3 one that i can only play at certain times of the week.

here is my list, only the odd couple are/were free, most were full price when they were released.

Try it again in a few weeks, it really is possible to get into it. I finished all levels except for the very last one, and the unlockable levels (didn't get all banana's). And once you do get the hang of it, the levels will still be hard through so that it will give you enough playtime. :)

I don't really want to think about it. I spend a little bit almost every day, and I'm sure it adds up to real money -- but so does going out for lunch, drinks, coffee, etc.

To answer your question more directly: definitely more than $200, possibly more than $300.

Let's just say I need to learn that today's $9.99 is tomorrow's $4.99, $1.99, or FREE game. The problem is that I want it today, not tomorrow!

The 350$ usd I spent since July really reaffirms my belief in piracy.


This is due to the fact that probably only ~80 bucks of that 350 were apps that I used more than once.


I'm pretty much done with legit apps until they instate some sort of a trial system. Even most java apps for mobiles have time restricted trial versions.


So for now, I am trying before I buy. I will still support developers, but not those whose products I am going to use a single time and then never touch again.

I feel your pain, at least 80% of my purchases on my iPhone were apps that I used once and never again.

However, I very much doubt you'll download a game, enjoy it, and then pay money for something you already have for free. It's a slippery slope, first you're doing it for good reason (you wanna try something before paying, fair enough), but I imagine the temptation to simply keep the good apps and not pay for the legit copy will be too powerful to resist.

This data is current as of THIS POST (for my references)

Let me just say that a lot of you are being incredibly ambiguous with your totals and it's hard for me to choose a number to put from your posts. So if you say 200-250, I will put down 225. But even then, you guys need to be a tad more specific and make my job a little easier and make the data more accurate for everyone :)

Also, I am always assuming it is US Dollars, unless stated otherwise

Good news though, WE BROKE $10,000!!!!

for most apps a global time restricted trial that uninstalled after would be fine for me. I'd continue to use the app store as opposed to other solutions.

See, this would be perfect. Problem is, I can see how it would reduce sales for a lot of unworthy apps, which ultimately means Apple isn't getting their cut. So yea, can't see it happening :(

It shouldn't have a poll I believe, because at first I'd have to vote below 50 dollar, but in a few weeks that vote would be wrong, since I'd be over the 50 dollar mark. If people keep updating their amounts here, the totals can be tracked and kept up to date as much as possible. :)

So far, as dated from 18th till now, I already spent $250 on games and other applications. So far I'm regret of the following purchases:

- Hangman2 [$0.99] (doesn't really have features as the free Hangman does)
- Cube Runner 2 [$2.99] (does not include sound that exist in the first version. Game play seems laggy compared to the first version too)
- xCube [$1.99] (the camera control makes it hard to figure out what's on the other side)
- Brothers in Arms: Hour of Heroes [$9.99] (game lags and the control is hard)
- Asphalt 4: Elite Racing [$5.99] (the drifting seems unrealistic. Game lags and crashes often.)
- 3D Sokoban [$0.99] (perhaps the whole new idea of 3D implementation on Sokoban doesn't sounds quite right)
- Midnight Pool [$4.99] (I prefer Virtual Pool instead. The control is much harder than Virtual Pool.)
- Moto Chaser [$0.99] (Doesn't sounds like a motor racing game at all. Hitting an obstacle does not even have impact on the vehicle!)

Total wasted: $28.92

iTunes says I have 228 apps, but I only keep about 30 on my iPhone. The rest were a total waste of money.

Well as I've been buying lots of apps on both the US and Australian App stores, depending on where I can pick up the cheapest gift cards, I started keeping a spreadsheet of all purchases last year.

Currently as at 13th March I have 707 apps, and have spent the following:
US$800.15 and A$468.12.

First game purchased was Enigmo back on 22nd July 2008 for US$9.99!

I've probably spent a few hundred more on music etc. Pretty scary when you add it up! Mind you, we're a family of 3, each with our own iPhone or Touch, so we share them between us, which makes it more bearable.

Also worth mentioning that we haven't purchased any DS games for our 3 DS units since we got the Apple's, and that amount would have only purchased a fraction of the number of games. Likewise with Wii games. Only purchased a few Xbox 360 games since, which still does get used a bit. May end up selling the Nintendo's...
