Yep, I did end up buying Snoopy Dollars in Snoopy Fair. I actually used it as a prize for my kids as a reward for extra good behaviour.
Normally I would frown on it, the idea of paying real money for virtual currency feels like such a ripoff. And yet I happily pay $5 for a good iOS game. It's funny how perception can affect your spending habits, I guess.
The report contains a few other interesting tidbits. For one, those who make an in-game payment tend to do so within the first month of playing, and those who try free-to-play titles tend to keep playing them, with 84 percent continuing to play after first trying them. Among those who abandon free-to-play titles, men aged 13 to 34 are most likely, while women in general are more likely to stay.
That's definitely true, I've abandoned We Rule, God Finger, Smurfs...
