What do you consider an...

...app store "spending spree". I do not buy apps often( i get most from promo codes or when they r free), and I just bought 4 dollar games in the past few minutes, and realized that was the first time I downloaded a paid app in 3-4 weeks. What is a lot in your opinion?????

I CAN'T WAIT TIL THE NEW IPHONE AHHHH I WANT IT SO BAD I'M PRETTY SURE I'M THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO STILL USES THE ORIGINAL IPHONE 2G.

Some days (like this weekend with all the sales), I find myself spending 5-10$ a night. I prefer not to use a debit/credit card over iTunes in order to budget myself; and if I spend over a 30$ iTunes card in a week, that's a spending spree.

Yeah I would have to agree, anything over $30 a week for iPhone games is alot. Currently I spend about $20 a week, down a good amount from when I started I-gaming.

wow hah thats a lot. I think most ppl dont use credit or debit and use itunes cards. I could use my card but idk y for some reason iTunes cards just work better with me. And yeah I buy a $25 card every 3 months i would say. lol i think im less of an addict than u (but i do have all 12 pages filled with apps, and most of them are paid apps : )

To be fair, I haven't had my iPod Touch for more than a few months, so I've had to catch up on all the old games as well .

My spree are kinda different. Usually I get itunes cards from my beta tests so I don't feel to bad about blowing it.

But I've spent 50 bucks in one night with that money. It was when REAL Racing came out and there was a huge flood of awesome games.

With my actual money... well I can't remember the last time I bought one so it's been quite some time
