In App Purchases make MORE than what people PAY for apps

We've all heard it before, even though it makes no sense, but "freemium" way of selling on your app is the best way.

Plenty of people would never pay $0.99 on "smurfville" but WILL spend $100 in "IN-APP PURCHASES"

So regardless that our platform (iPHone) makes MORE "spent per user" than android, it's clear you should be GIVING away your app­

I totally agree. I myself have a few free apps where I took of advantage of IAP. I used it both in a traditional and a non-traditional way. First off as an indie dev. most of my free apps are ad supported (sorry but I need to pay bills) so in a few I have implemented IAP to allow the purchase of ad-removal. The apps are fully functional but users have the option to remove the "annoying" advertisements. Now in some cases I have implemented IAP more traditionally where the user can purchase additional content and as an added incentive ad removal is included in the .99. I was weary as to whether or not users would purchase any of the additional content &/or the ad removal but I have been pleasantly surprised.

I am currently using Urban Airship for my IAP. It is so simple to implement.
