OK 'fess up. Who 'round here's never paid money for an app?

I betcha some of youse are hiding out there...come on 'fess up!


EDIT: hey, i'm NOT asking who's pirating software. i'm more interested in who seems to get enough satisfaction from lite versions that they need go no further

My mom bought an iPod Touch and she hasn't spent a penny on apps. :P My dad and I have spent a LOT on apps. I think she's crazy because she doesn't use her iPod the way I think it was meant to be used! She rarely uses her iPod... usually she uses it to check her email. :P

She should give me her iPod so I can have two

Thats just pure sacrilege.......like eating an ice cone w/o ice cream or having toast w/o butter or having a drivers license w/o a car or bourbon and coke w/o the coke (uhh, maybe thats not so bad) or having a Touch/iPhone w/o TA as your homescreen.........

I used to download lots of those apps for free but i just gave up. Dont come after me lol
Won't waste my time, but if you don't want people to come after you, uh, maybe don't say anything? Why even open yourself up to that?

If you ask me, this thread is kind of just asking in a round about way if you pirate or not. I mean, who hasn't bought an app but spends time on TA?
What you're really asking is who's playing games but hasn't payed for them.

Ahh, you're right. It's probably underoath's fault for setting me off

Though I'll tell you something, if people can only hold themselves to lite versions, they deserve a medal in self-restraint.

In all reality how can you actually spend time at TA and not buy games. Way to hard for me to do, this site makes me buy more games then I ever should,
