Not a complete list of what I've enjoyed but it's still a lot of good stuff IMO

**BONUS** 100% free with no IAP:
Deadly Bullet
Asterogue

No timers:
Quadropus Rampage - doubler
Phoenix HD - can't believe I didn't find this earlier. Awesome shmup!
Punch Quest
Temple Run 2
Nimble Quest
Into The Dead
Robot Unicorn Attack 2
2Fuse - got the doubler
Zombie Kill of the Week - still thinking of that doubler
Plants vs Zombies 2
Wild Frontier
Dumb Ways to Die
Flow Free
SOL: Stone of Soul - paid like $5 because I liked it but got disappointed later on :P
Dracula Twins
Oreo twist lick dunk
StarDunk - Liked it so much, I got the premium version, StarDunk Gold
Deep Dungeons of Doom
Dungeon Plunder - premium version available

Timers:
Dungeon Hunter 4
Snow Spin
Pocket Avenger
Spirit Stones
Brave Frontier
Tower of Ascension - $5 out of impulse


Full game unlocks:
Reaper: Tale of a Pale Swordsman - paid the full $5
Paint It Back
Jet Car Stunts 2

RPG Warlord Revival

Turned freemium (but I got as premium):
Asphalt 8
Spell Sword
Pocket Titans
Walking Dead: The Game
Arc Squadron (Redux)
House of the Dead
Space Chicks - doubler
Smash Cops (heat)
Maximus - a weird one because it went paidmium

Waiting on Dungelot 2 definitely getting the timer removal IAP

Edit: removed games that aren't really free (thanks Pete)
Edit2: added a few more

The only good freemium games in my book are:

Quadropus Rampage

and

Dead Ahead

Awesome games worth everyones time. The first one is epic and the second one is fun and extremely generous. I gotten more than 20,000 coins in 1 run. No other game can match that (even paidmium or some so called "premium" game can match that).

Growtopia (everything in game obtainable without IAP)
Manyland (no IAP at all, or ads, so I guess it's not really freemium..but still)

- Jetpack joyride
- tiny tower
- plants vs zombies 2
- temple run
- punch quest
- candy crush (ashamed to admit it but yeah it was a great game if you ignore the freemium aspects)

Total spent - $0 - mainly because I despise freemium games and don't want to support the model, that said I wouldn't mind spending a few bucks on PvZ 2, it's great.

I want to suggest Battle Nations because it's the only freemium war game thing with actual gameplay -seriously how do these "games" without gameplay make money- (where is the gameplay in clash of clans,Modern War,War of Nations etc)
Games without freemium elements
Dead Ahead
Jet pack joyride - 7 (Don't judge me)
Quadropus Rampage - doubler
With dual currencies
Avengers Alliance 20 (Again,don't judge me)
Tapped Out (really only worth playing if you are a fan of the show)

Magic 2014 is great, but it's not freemium.

Good freemium games would be:
Plants vs Zombies 2
Nimble Quest
Jetpack Joyride
Temple Run 2
Robot unicorn Attack 2
Subway Surfers
Minion Rush
Angry Birds Go (from what little I've seen)
Zynga Poker

And no I've never spent a penny on them.

Angry birds go has so many bad things about it I don't even know where to start.
