    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market? I occasionally stumble upon something in the Market, but discovering new games/apps isn't as easy as I'd like

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games? I download and buy far more games based on recommendations by AC and other Android blogs.

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics? Force closing or not opening are the most annoying problems.

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it? Dive in and hope I figure it out.

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).I pay for a game if I've tried the free version and it has replay potential or if it's highly recommended by a couple of blogs.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round? Not big on passing my phone.

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games? Single player

    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar? Android Market

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites? Not personally

    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends? If a free game has high replay value or a paid game was worth my money, I make a point to recommend it.

    1) Somewhat easy.
    2)Recommendations, and searching categories.
    3)Poor graphics/interface. Lack of fit/finish.
    4)I wing it, unless I get stuck.
    5)When I feel I would get my money's worth.
    6)No, I do not and am not likely to.
    7)Single Player
    8)Android Market
    9)OpenFeint too... but yes. Shareable scores and achievements.
    10)Yes, I do recommend games to others.

    Here are my responses:

    1. I guess it's OK. Some apps/games are easier to find than others.
    2. I think I use recommendations (e.g., at Android and tech-type web sites) more often than search.
    3. Hmm -- force closes would certainly be an issue, but also if I get really stuck somewhere in the game and can't continue past it, that would annoy me.
    4. If instructions are provided, I'll read them, unless the game's controls etc. are obviously like something with which I'm already familiar.
    5. I guess if it looks interesting, gets good reviews, and has a good price, possibly on a discount.
    6. Generally, no, I don't play pass-the-phone multi-player games.
    7. I prefer single player games.
    8. I get almost everything, games and apps, from the Android Market. I generally only use Amazon, GetJar, and such to get apps for free when they're for pay in the Market.
    9. Since I typically don't share game scores to sites, it doesn't matter much. Though something like OpenFeint that has an online high-score board and/or achievements can be fun.
    10. Not to people I know personally, just because I don't know who has Android phones and whether they like to play games or not. I might make some kind of remark on Twitter or something though.

    I hope this helps.

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games? Recommendations (and still like a demo/free version to try out - even if it's only a $.99 game)

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics? Interface/poor

    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar? Android Market

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites? No - don't really care about social sites

    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends? Absolutely

    Yes

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    more categories than recommendations, but I use both.

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    not enough devices supported

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    wing it

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    I don't. ever. I'm sorry...I'm sure you don't like to hear this, but I'm being honest. I don't ever pay for apps/games, for any reason. I've had android devices for over 18 months, and i've never spent a single cent on additional content.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    I never play multiplayer. ever.

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    single player...see above.

    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    mobilism, applanet, droidfans, droidappz, snappzmarket

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    no...i despise them.

    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    yes, always.

    1. No

    2. Recommendations from tech sites like AC/Good and EVO just to name a few.

    3. I haven't run into it enough. Edit not true I just remembered something. NFS Shift works on my Kindle fire but not on my Transformer Prime. Rip Tide works on both. I would think the lower end device would be the one not to be able to play a game, that I could except. Maybe screen resolution has something to do with it but that is annoying to have a game work on my low end $199.00 device but not my $700.00 tablet

    4. Wing it

    5. If I like the game and it is reasonably priced.

    6. Nooooooooo! It is a personal device for my hands only.

    7. Single player

    8. Android market

    9. No

    10. Yes
    Don't mess with me, I haven't had my Tratonin yet.

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?
    Yes! I occasionally browse through the most popular apps in whatever category I'm curious about.
    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Both! Most of my games come from recommendations/shares from family and friends.
    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    When it asks you to register for something or to rate it over and over.
    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    I wing it at first in hopes that the first few levels are tutorial levels (like "cut the rope"). If i can't figure it out quickly i then read the instructions.
    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    I think all my purchases have been because I played it on a friends phone first and enjoyed it. I'm not one to buy and return if I don't care for it.
    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    No. Sometimes we take turns in single player ("bejeweled" or "impossible game")
    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    Single
    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    Android market all the way. I only use amazon for the FAOTD and never paid them anything. Never heard of GetJar
    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    No
    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    All the time! I use the share button in the android market and send it via text.

    - Recommendations from xda or AC

    - I look for and prefer online games but the AT$T network is S.L.O.W for me.

    Default Re: Bit of market research

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?
    It's not very reliable I've found.
    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Mostly search categories or when an app is mentioned on a site like androidcentral.
    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    The most annoying thing is when apps want a million permissions that they should not need.
    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    I normally wing it, but I think a in game tutorial is better than written instructions.
    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    When a game's demo is great and makes me want more.
    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    I have not played any, but it sounds very interesting.
    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    On my phone I normally prefer single player games, but multi-player modes like Fruit Ninja's multi-player mode on a tablet is loads of fun..more games need to implement that.
    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    Android Market
    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    Don't usually like to give more password protection..but I'm more wary than the average user who might enjoy that more.
    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    Absolutely. Games should have a link to "share" which can be sent as email/text, and should open up the person's android market with the game or the demo (or video).

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?
    - Somewhat, mostly they just rehash and show the same apps over and over on the main page. I have to scroll down and go into Top New Apps to find new ones.

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    - Both. I'll go by recommendations if people post reviews or previews of games I've never heard before, like the App Pick here on Android Central. But I also sometimes randomly search the Market.

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    - Lag. Since I and a lot of other people still have older devices, new games with shiny graphics tend to lag.

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    - Depends on the game. Side-scrollers and racing games are pretty self explanatory, so I just dive right in, but some shooters & puzzle games are a little more complex.

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    - After I actually experienced it. A lot of times demos are just too limiting and don't showcase the actual game.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    - No

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    - Single player

    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    - Mostly from Android Market, however, I visit Amazon App Store to check out the free app of the day.

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    - I never upload scores to anything, so I can't say I like or dislike games just for this particular reason, however, I really hate it when games plaster all that Facebook & OpenFeint integration all over the interface.

    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    - My friends are not really into mobile games, so no.

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    Not having the right screen resolution.

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?

    New apps, yes. New apps I would use? Nope. A lot of garbage.

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Recommendations

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    I think the games attempt to mimic Angry Birds too much. I find most games to be a bore.

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    I always use instructions and tutorials.

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    When the free version is awesome, I pay for it. I have spent well over $100 on games in the app market.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    I have. I play a "Catch Phrase" type of game (party phrase), and I think there is a lot of room to grow in group cell phone games.

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    Single

    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    Android Market and Amazon

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    No. I find the social aspect of games extremely annoying.

    Thanks for your patience - I'm sure a lot of developers would love to know this stuff and maybe improve user experiences!
    1. Nope, its not just Android. Amazon, getjar and even iOS all suck to find new apps on your own
    2. Usually recommendations, search engines when i have a certain craving lol
    3. Unrepsonive gameplay first and foremost, games not tablet optimized is huge. Force closes happen, i inform the developer if its an issue and move on
    4. Wing it
    5. The Game has to have a good trail, not just an adfree version, i want more of a game when i buy
    6. No, if i have to pass it then i usually play single player, get more features(single players always have more features), and compare scores. I prefer multiplayer with shared screen, Fruit Ninja and Two Player Attack are good examples
    7. Single player, usually a multi player feature will make me more likely to buy though
    8. Android Market, amazon when it is a non-google device
    9. No, i hate the time and resources they waste.

    1. No, I rarely search for new stuff in the market unless it's something I really want to find or feel I need.

    2. Recommendations.

    3. Force closes definitely, they are the plagues of Android.

    4. Just wing it most of the time.

    5. If there's not a free version and I've heard it's really addicting.

    6. Not really. Monopoly is the closest one, but me and my wife just sit next to each other.

    7. Single player on my phone/tablet definitely.

    8. Amazon Market because they have the free app every day.

    9. Doesn't make a difference.

    3. Poor graphics, and force close problems (lack of testing before release)

    4.Yes and no depending on how comfortable I am with game style.

    5. If its a GREAT game with terrific graphics and gameplay. 14.99

    6. Never

    7. Multiplayer if the game provides a mmorpg gameing experience.

    8. 70% android market 30% Amazon appetite

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?
    Not really - searches often come up with irrelevant apps to those that I am looking for and there seems to be no way to filter them by downloads/votes. However, the "Users who installed this also installed" is sometimes a useful pointer, Why Google can't provide some way of ranking/filtering is beyond me!


    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Yes - reviews on Android forums/websites are often useful. I have found a number of apps that I had no idea that existed until I read a review/mention.

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    Both.

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    Usually just wing it but then revert to reading the docs/help if I have problems,

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    When I have tried it. All apps should have a "free" option whereby you can get a feel for the app/game whether limited in levels or functionality, The constraints of the Android Market 15 minutes is far too short for a full committment to buying a sophisticated game/app.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    No. I am a saddo lone player!

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    The option of multplayer is a good idea but most games should also be perfectly playable as a single player.

    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    Only Android Market - Amazon is only available in North America and I worry about security with other sources.

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    Personally I don't like the floods of rubbish that are "auto posted" to social networking sites as it is increasingly making hashtags like #Android completely useless.

    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    Yes

    About as easily as can be expected. Between the Top New catergories, staff picks, and the trending apps, it's not bad, but an app has to gain some traction to begin with.

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Both. I am more likely to download an app recommended to me, but I do look in the new app sections. However, the icon/header image is very important to my opinions on the app, whether to download or not, if I'm just browsing. I guess I think a good icon/header will mean the dev put the effort in, and it's more likely to be good.

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    This is a tough one. I guess I will go with FC's, because if I can't play the game at all, that makes me not like it. However, I won't even download a game that isn't visually appealing. I'm not saying poor graphics technically speaking. There are lots of great games with good graphics that are not technically advanced at all. But if the app looks ugly, I won't buy it. I notice that this usually happens with low quality 3D games.

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    Depends. Instructions given in small snippets are easier to read and remember. If you mask a whole screen with a ton of instructions, I give it up as a bad job to try and remember it all.

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    It would have to satisfy 3 criteria.

    1) Good initial presentation. Well written description, good screen shots, great icon, etc.
    2) Good concept. Is it an angry birds rip-off? Won't buy it. Is it something that sounds fun and I haven't seen it? Then yeah, I'll consider it.
    3) Good reviews. I am not an early adopter when it comes to apps. If it is a paid app and hasn't had many reviews yet, I'm very hesitant. This is mainly with games that I may not be able to refund.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    Not on phones. On tablets, yes.

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    Single Player. I won't hate a game for including multiplayer, but on my phone, I like a get in-get out type experience that multiplayer seldom encourages.

    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    Google market easy.

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    Not a feature I've ever used. Make sure there is a confirmation dialog so I don't do it accidently, and I don't mind.

    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    Yes.

    Hey, glad to help out, hope this does that!

    1. I usually only discover apps through Amazon App Store when they do FAOTD, or I'm looking for a specific type of game (e.g Tower defense etc.)

    2. Search categories

    3. I would say force closures, or having to download dependencies after install. I understand this is a limitation of the Market, but pretty annoying.

    4. Wing it.

    5. When it's priced right, fills a need and it's truely worth it (obviously personal pref, but Doodle Jump, Root Explorer, Peggle, Airport Mania)

    6. No, can't say I would find a game like that fun, but then again I mainly game on the go when I have minutes to pass, not as a focal point of social gatherings

    7. Single, see above

    8. Android Market or Amazon Appstore

    9. Not especially, I don't do social networking, no FB, Twitter, G+, although having those features wouldn't detract me (Having to have a FB account for Spotify guaranteed they would never get a penny of my money)

    10. Yes, but in person (Hey I downloaded this game the other day xxx....you should check it out)

    1. No, not unless I know the name of the app and can search for it.
    2. A little bit of both, but I mostly just search for new games.
    3. Force closes are the worst. Next to that lag in gameplay is very annoying.
    4. Sometimes I read the instructions if the game looks complicated, if not, I just wing it.
    5. If a review comes back really praising the game, I'll usually go ahead and download it. Feedback from friends also sways my decision.
    6. Yes. Uno is a great game for passing the handset around. As an example.
    7. mostly I prefer single player games.
    8. Android market.
    9. No
    10. Absolutely.
