Some guns in SAS Zombie Assault 3
Coin Doubler in Jetpack Joyride
Extra money in Monster Shooter

I think that's it.

Never bought in-game money or coin doublers and never will.

I did however buy the full game unlock for Magic the Gatheribg 2013 and 2014 and a levels pack for Highborn.

So many different ones, but the ones I still play include:

Ski Safari (doubler; bought the game when it was premium)
Pocket God: Ooga Jump (doubler; bought the game when it was premium)
Jetpack Joyride (doubler; will buy the sleigh as soon as I get new iTunes cards)
Sonic Dash (doubler; bought the game when it was premium)
Temple Run 2 (doubler)
Flick Kick Football Legends (cheapest IAP to disable ads)
Nimble Quest (doubler)

I don't play it anymore, but I also bought every single table in Zen Pinball (I got rid of my iPad, and I hate playing it on the iPhone). And I've also done doublers or other IAP in premium stuff.

Spent money on The Walking Dead (all Season 1 episodes) and CSR Racing. Never shared, don't like to pester my friends.

Cannot remember names right now, but basically everything where I play for more than 10 hours gets some money from me (usually 5+€) , provided it's not a blatant cashgrab (Dungeon Hunter 4, looking at you).
In any case, that's only a handful of games for me, as there are enough high-quality fullprice games out there; and my free time is very limited, so I spend it in my genre (real RPGs like Avernum or Baldur's Gate, strategy like XCom) mostly.

Bought the big 50€ pack at Ravenmark:Mercenaries launch to support the devs, and like 10€ to get all ships in Strikewing:Raptor Rising, also to support the devs.

Full game unlocks, additional content, etc, I do not count as F2P. E.g. the Kingturn games, or Warhammer Quest.

The only F2P game I can remember buying an in-app purchase for is Clay Jam. I bought a permanent power-up upgrade specifically BECAUSE IAPs aren't necessary to advance the game -- I just wanted to support the devs in some small way. It's the most uncynical "freemium" game I can think of. <3

Purchased a few songs on Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. I loved Elite Beat Agents and I have a soft spot for Final Fantasy and it's music from the SNES era.
