Google announced that priced applications would start appearing in the Android Market almost two weeks ago and now that I am back from my vacation I spent some time browsing through the Android Market on my T-Mobile G1. Paid apps started actually appearing just about a week ago. Once you are in the Android Market you simply press the Menu button and select Change view to toggle between all, free, or priced applications in both the Applications list or Games list. There are currently 227 applications (ranging from 99 cents to $34.99) and 148 games (ranging from 99 cents to $9.99) for a total of 375 priced applications in the Android Market.
I currently have just about 50 free applications/utilities loaded on my G1 and receive low memory notifications every day that force me to remove an application or find some data cache to clear to continue working. Thus, at this time I cannot even purchase and install a priced application even if I wanted to. Browsing through the list of 375 priced applications, I cannot honestly say there are any that compel me to make a purchase on my G1 at this time. The fact that I have no real available memory doesn't help either as I am uncertain what will happen if I purchase and then uninstall an application and am not in a position to waste lots of my money right now.
The only two priced applications I have so far, TeleNav GPS Navigator and TouchDown were loaded outside the Android Market.
Some of my favorite applications that give me all the functionality I currently need are available for free and include imeem Mobile, Shazam, ShopSavvy, Twidroid, CadreBible, fBook, PhoneFlix, Skype Lite, Truphone, Last.fm, Opera Mini, and Toggle Settings.
Have you purchased any applications on the Android Market? If so, what ones do you recommend I consider? Is anyone else experiencing these major low memory issues like me?
