When on itunes:

First thing i look at is if the title and app icon gets my attention, then i see if it is worth my time starting with the screenshots. If i like what i see, i read the app description. If i like it, i get it, no matter the price, freemium or not.

I rarely do that nowadays though, because i have so many games i dont want to dive without knowing more now. I still do it, but pretty rarely.

Through touch arcade:

Again, i check the thread if the title gets my attention, and if i recognize the publisher, i make decisions from there. There are devs i dont even care checking their apps nowadays. Then, screenshots of course, and if i like em, i read throuh the description. If i really like it, i check the thread for impressions, or ask for some.

If i saw the game in the upcoming thread and really like the look of things there, there's a high chance i'd buy it blindly when it goes live.

I've got both iOS and Android. I love premium games and i've got a lot on iOS and use Android mostly for emulation

I just find as theres no 'quality checking' on Android theres a LOT of freebie throwaway games on Android which are really poor. I mean in the android section here i would personally say 99% are just throwaway simple games

That's pretty narrow minded. The android section here on TA should be no indication of android games.
