If you buy a lot of apps from your appstore, then you may find that the cost really adds up. Most apps can be pretty cheap, but if you start buying a lot of them, you will find that the cost can really add up. You may find that this list may help you to keep the cost of your apps down.
Only Download Free Ones
To start with it is always wise to use free apps whenever you can. Try to compare the prices as well as the app types to see whether there are free ones available. These may not necessarily be less good just because they are free, although it is easy to assume they will be. Try them out first before committing to paying for an app and you could find that you are able to get a lot more for free.
Check if there are In-app Purchases
It is worth checking if there are in-app purchases in an app before you buy one. If you are the sort of person who gets tempted with paying for things inside the apps, then it could be well worth avoiding these types of apps. Many o have these though, so it could be hard to completely avoid them. Try to find out what sorts of things you are encouraged to buy so that you can work out whether you think that you will be tempted to spend the money or not.
Compare Apps and Prices
It is also worth doing a good comparison of the different apps and their prices. If you want an app that does a certain thing, then you may find that there are number of different apps that you can choose between. If this is the case then it is wise to look at your options and work out which looks the best but also take into consideration how much it costs. It is best to buy the app which looks like it offers the best value for money.
Look for Deals and Offers
You may find that you can get some good deals from time to time. Look out for these as well as special offers to see whether you can save money when buying your apps. It is always worth a look because even a small saving is better than no saving at all. These may be within the appstore itself or on specific apps you buy.
Ask for Vouchers
If you have anyone who buys you gifts regularly and wants some ideas on what to buy, then ask them to give you vouchers for your favourite appstore. This will give you help with paying for things.
