Back in early December 2010, Google announced that over 10 billion apps were downloaded from the Android Market. Not matter how you try to break it down – that is a lot of apps. The announcement and the magnitude of the numbers involved, lead me to ask a couple of poll questions.

First, I was curious whether IT Pros on TechRepublic were downloading Android apps, and, secondly, if they were, whether they were paying for those apps or sticking with the available free apps. I had my suspicions on how the results would turn out, but it is always better to confirm than assume.

Do the results surprise you? They surprised me a little – I have yet to find an Android app that I am willing to pay for, but apparently there are more than a few. What about you? What Android app have you purchased and are you still satisfied with choice to make the purchase?
