You should pay for some of the apps on your phone.
Years ago a friend said to me, “I’ll pay $4.00 for a coffee that will be gone in 10 to 30 minutes, so why wouldn’t I pay $4.00 for an app that I’m going to use over and over again for months or years?”

Pay the app developers who make your life better!
Show a little love.
Replace the free trial version with the paid version.

I have a free app from a national chain hardware store. That makes sense. They give me the app because it lubricates the buying process and ultimately generates more sales, both in-store and online.
But I paid for the network analyzer tool that I use regularly. The free version has 99% of the features I’ll ever use, but I paid for it anyway, because that’s the only way the developers make money unless they load it up with advertising.

@fifonetworks my main problem is that I actually can't buy anything inside of the apps, because I don't have Google Play Services installed

@rnickson I don't think I've ever bought anything inside an app, either. But I do get the paid version of apps after using the free trial version to see if I'm going to keep using it.

I can't pay for apps on my phone, but I can donate!
