How many apps have you bought?

As the title states, how many apps have you bought? I’m an aspiring mobile developer and plan to solely develop for Android. But one thing I hear from most developers is they tend to stay away from Android, most of them think it’s really hard to make a decent living off the Play Store. I’ve seen many articles with developers leaving Android, because they couldn’t keep up with all of the devices and OS versions. (Which was likely the devs fault.)

Personally, I’ve purchased well over 100 apps and only regret buying a few of them. Other than that, i’m more than glad to purchase a well developed game or app for $5-10.

What seems to be the sweet spot to get you to buy an app? I know I’m weary about purchasing a $17 app like TSF Shell, without being able to try it out for more than 15 minutes.
