Maybe it is just for games, but that's the segment I pay the most attention to. I'd love to be proven wrong through experience, so maybe I'll throw some Android apps out there.

Personally, I know 3 people who make a living doing productivity and utility apps on Android now.

I've actually never personally met an indy iOS developer making their money on not-games, come to think of it.

I easily spend $15-30/mo on android apps. I go out of my way to buy ad-less versions but I do appreciate that I can try an app for a few days even with an ugly, unfit ad.
