Apps are a great way to have some fun and organize your life. From gaming apps to to-do list organizational ones, it’s easy to get into an app that fits your needs. Unfortunately, among the many wonderful apps available on your phone or tablet, there are a lot of bad ones. These apps may look fine but when you download them, they are riddled with advertisements and pay-to-play purchases. Finding a good app can sometimes feel difficult, but there are certain things to look for in order to make an educated decision.
Pay-to-play apps are one of the most common you’ll find on the market. These apps have very limited game play if you download them to your device and in order to have access to the rest of the game, you’ll have to pay the creator for the full version. This is great if you are interested in the game and want to have access to it all, but it can be expensive when you consider that each item has to be purchased separately. Pay-to-play apps are deceiving because they look fun and may even allow you to progress pretty far in the game until you essentially get stuck and virtually have to pay in order to get through.
Certain apps cost money right off the bat before you’re able to have access to them at all. These are fine if you’re going to be playing the app, but they can be a disappointment if you pay to play the game and then find out you don’t like it. The only benefit to these types of apps is that you often won’t have to pay for anything in the game because you’re buying the full version.
The reviews on the app will give you pretty good insight into how it is. If you notice a lot of reviews are saying there is limited game play or that the size of the app is too large for their device, it might be a good idea to move onto something better. Be sure to look through the millions of apps available before paying for anything.
