Hey guys, I really hope I'm not posting in the wrong place here...

We're in the process of building an iPhone app, and wanted to get some feedback from the community about who is paying for apps vs downloading for free so that we can work out the best way to monetise. It would really really help us if you could fill out the following survey: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/153799/. It's completely confidential and anonymous and should only take 5-10 mins to finish.

As a thank you to people who help us out, you can elect to go into the draw to win one of 3 $20 iTunes vouchers so you can go and buy lots of shiny new apps for your phone/touch.

Any general comments about whether we should make our app paid or free would be very welcome, of course

Thanks!

What are you going to do with e-mail addresses? Are they going to be sold? Is the survey for internal uses only?

I don't mind helping out, but I don't need any more spam, and I don't support groups that sell e-mail addresses, or surveys to other groups. If you are an independent developer, then all well and good.

And what app(s) do you make? You post does not say.

A quick Google search came up with results saying that they posted this survey on Craigslist for most of the major cities in the U.S.

But... I completed it and I'm hoping to win a gift card

Yeah - joined today, post for survey... Maybe legit, but maybe trolling for e-mail addresses, and stats to sell. I'll opt out unless further information is forthcoming.

I truly hate spam, and would also like an answer to this question.
