Freemium Apps and Content

Sunday, September 22, 2013 in Technical Articles (Views: 1172)
So, this is my new, made up word. What is it? Well, it's a combination of two things:

1. Free: An app that is free to download
2. Premium: An app that costs money to make function without jumping through hell and fire

So, enter the new class of games. Ones that are free, and you can certainly play them, but if you want to finish the game in a reasonable time, you will pay, well, much more than the game is worth. Beware of freemium games, unless you just want to enjoy them. In-app purchases are like "extended warranties", really for suckers in this case.

Of course, I am not opposed to paying for a game I enjoy. So, if you feel the need to donate to the game's cause, and it is freemium, you should donate no more than what you feel the game is worth.
