Do you ever feel like you have too many apps?

I am now starting to think that I spend all of my money for apps since I have 57 apps on my phone. But when I think about how much money I spent. It is probably around $120. So when I compare it to me buying $60 video games it doesn't look like I spent that much more.

I have too many apps and too many games on all the systems I have. Sometimes I wonder if I enjoy owning them more than I enjoy playing most of them. I have to agree: being obsessed with getting the games on i-touch isn't as expensive though.

I like most of the apps that I have bought. There are some games that I haven't played that much, though. I used to buy a lot of xbox games. I use a lot more my ipod touch than my xbox. As I always have my ipod touch with me, I am always playing or doing something with my ipod. So, I have spent less money on xbox ad more on the ipod and I like it better that way.

Usually buying an app fixes that right up.

Definitely have too many apps and Im addicted to it! Of course I once was addicted to buying console games I have finally broken that habbit late last year. At least app store games are cheap . But they sure do add up for 1-2 dollar games...

I just got an iTouch and one thing I'm worried about is going crazy and getting too many apps all at once. The money isn't a big deal because they're just 1-4$ a piece but I just think if I go about like a kid in a candy store, I'll never get the chance to properly enjoy them all. So I've been using some real restraint while on the App store. So far I've only grabeed Tap Revenge 2 and Baseball 2009 along with Gamebox Asia since it was free.

Heck yes, I have too many apps! lol. I have so many that I am always swapping games/apps to fit my newer ones on my ipod touch.

I have a backlog of games and apps I want to play or return to. I have sunk quite a bit of cash into the games and apps too. It's addictive because the price is incredibly cheap compared to console games. I don't even have any consoles anymore and if I did, I am sure I would not be spending cash on console games anymore. The psychology of seeing games that are .99 to only $5.99 compared to $40 is a no brainer!

I'm addicted but I must watch my spending. Sometimes spending has it's perks though. I just bought a movie for my friend on itunes as a gift AND got a movie in return!
