How much money have you spent on ios games/apps in 2010?

I purchased my ipad back in June and was curious to see how much money I spent on games since then. 99. here, $1.99 there doesn't seem like much but over time it adds up. So I checked my history and to date I spent $439.42. Anyone else care to share how much their spending? This number did jump quite a bit in the last week with the ridiculous amount of price drops and releases.

This year was an enormous jump for me from 2009. I've $743.67 out of the total $1126.98 in 2010. I got my first iPod in January 2009. How did I get these numbers? I went through the long ass purchase history and added it all up with my calculator.

$85.05

About $7 a month for the year 2010.

Although It will be over $100 when I get iWork and several other iPad games soon exactly $144.98 unless there will be price drops.

Last I checked (which was in July), I rang up a sickening amount of over $2200 :( That's when I stopped buying iTunes cards...

I'd guess between 100 and 200 which is quite a lot thinking about it but I've got apps to do practicly every task you can think of now and enough games to last months still to play.

Plus it's probably better than spending my money on cigs like I used to.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

There's some big numbers out there guys, and I thought I was bad!!

As at 16 December my total spend was a whisker over 440 ($750). And that's without Asphalt 6, Secret of Mana or Infinity Blade IAP's! Soon adds up huh?!

I've gave my account a quick check, and I've racked up about 120USD odd in game / app purchases within 3 months of having my iPad, that's about.. 40usd a month?

those occasional 99cents here and there and the sudden splurge of purchasing a day-one release app does hurt my wallet, but, the amount of fun I got out of it ? Priceless.
