    1. No. It shows you the top new and paid, but not that easy to find the newest apps.
    2. Mostly recommendations
    3. I would say the dreaded force close
    4. I usually read the instructions unless it's straight forward like a fps
    5. If the game is good and I'll pay for it every
    6. No
    7. I prefer single players. It always is hard getting a multilayer game
    8. 99% Android Market
    9. Yes. Not a necessity though
    10. All the time

    1. Yes, but obviously there are better ways to discover new apps, such as friend recommendations and Reddit.

    2. I mainly rely on recommendations, but when I'm bored, I find myself browsing market.android.com for new apps.

    3. The most annoying problem to me is when a game comes out that doesn't support more than a few devices (like my Kindle Fire running CM9)

    4. Depending on the perceived complexity of the game, I may read the instructions, but most games are simple enough that I don't need to.

    5. I pay for games that cost more than $3 if they're extremely well-received and seem like something I would play. If it's less than $3, I pay for it if it has a decent concept and doesn't involve micropurchases. I would rather pay more up-front than have to pay more in-game.

    6. I rarely do, but there have been specific occasions like with Catan and UNO where I have.

    7. I prefer Singleplayer games.

    8. I buy most of my games through the Android Market.

    9. No, because it clutters my newsfeed and that of my friends.

    10. I recommend games to my friends all the time.

    1. Not too hard, but I rarely find anything new purely from searching the market
    2. I usually rely on recommendations from sites like AC or AndroidPolice, and sometimes I use AppBrain
    3. Force closing is probably the most annoying, but I also don't like it when it takes 5 minutes of setup before I can actually get to playing
    4. I usually read the instructions
    5. I rarely pay for a game that is more than $2 and I NEVER pay for a game that I have not tried before, either in a trial/demo version or played on a friend's phone
    6. I have never played a "pass n play" type game on my phone
    7. I like both single and multiplayer, but in general the single-player games tend to be more fun for me
    8. Android Market
    9. No I could not care less about letting my friends know my scores, and I'm sure they don't care either
    10. Yes I recommend games all the time

    1. I think its kind of easy. Its certainly not difficult but it could improve. Not very high on the list of things i'd like to change though. The addition of new and most famous is a must.

    2. 99.5 % on recommendations from friends or websites.

    3. Mostly games or apps that are late on supporting ICS (or any other new versio), then the force close. As far as the graphics, while there are games that have amazing graphics there are others who are awful. Certainly need to addressed to developers of both games and applications.

    4. Most of the times I don't read the instructions. But I do like the games that come with tutorials who show you how to play.

    5. To consider buying a game/app the price would be low. Then I would have to read reviews from multiple sources and see game play videos on youtube, if there are any. In other words the game (or the developer) would have to make an effort for me to spend money, and sure worth it!

    6. Not really...

    7. I mostly play single player games because I use my phone as a casual gaming device. But it would certainly like the idea I could play multiplayer games sometimes. If I may, I would recommend the Raging Thunder racing game were you can make a lan party (wirelessly) and play. It even supports other platforms (iOS).

    8. Android Market.

    9. Sure!

    10. Of course!

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?
    Yes, though mostly I rely on Android-oriented sites for app recommendations.

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Recommendations, mostly. Search by categories only when I have the time or if I am bored.

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    I got 2 actually:
    i) Some games do not have an Exit button, and the Back button does not make the game exit (from the lobby/intro if you know what I mean).
    ii) Instability, frequent FCs.

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

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    When it is recommended by friends/websites, catches my fancy, and after I have tried its demo/free version.
    Have bought a few games point-blank (the Story series from Kairosoft) though, since I know the quality of their games.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    No, hate to pass an extension of myself around.

    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. Would like to use Amazon too, but apparently Amazon doesn't know the rest of the world exists.

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    No preference, but just make it optional to do so.

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

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    not compatible with your brand spanking new device.
    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    i always read the instructions.
    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    when the game just plain rocks and i want to keep the dev in business

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?
    Not really. It's usually easier to search for something I want. The home page and the "top picks" sections are quite stagnant, doesn't move very fast.

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Recommendations mostly. categories are often not specific enough...?

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    regular force close (a couple is tolerable), no autosave, lag on a phone with a decent cpu.

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    wing it~ and go back to instructions if i get stuck, or something looks less than intuitive, or it's a puzzle game with specific rules.

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    When it's nice enough that I know I won't regret paying for it. Either because of a demo, or I've played the same company's other (similar) games before. Or because of a favourable review that seem to describe a game I would like. Or when it's 10 cents, but that's a totally different story.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    Not much.

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    Single player mostly, haven't played much multiplayer...

    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    Market, Amazon and GetJar just for their free stuff. Once in a blue moon I'll find something I really like there, but if I want to pay for something, Market is the only place I can use.

    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?
    Yes!

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?
    It's not the best but it's definitely getting better.
    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Recommendations but with the new market updates, I do find new apps easier. Appbrain and tablet market-like apps help
    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    Graphics, user interface, mostly low quality games. Also the same old same old, I hate no innovation (easier said than done, but still)
    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    Normally just wing it, such as on Xbox, but on mobile gaming there's a huge variety of interfaces and concepts so I enjoy initial game tutorials.
    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    I like playing a demo and getting hooked and wanting mire. Also I like to have play for free and then if I warrant it very fun, I'll purchase more content (like Pocket Legends)
    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    Not against the idea but prefer individual handsets playing over wifi.
    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    I prefer single player on mobile, I enjoy both when it comes to Xbox and such.
    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?
    Makes no difference to me, but I'm not very social on the internet lol
    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    Definitely! Both single player and multiplayer, I love sharing the joy!

    I appreciate the consideration. Hope it helps

    1) I find finding apps new to me easy enough

    2) a little of both.

    3) a tie between force closes and excessively long load times.

    4) I'm like instructions.

    5) I only pay for games that have an option for infinate gameplay. If the game has a beginning and an end I won't pay for it.

    6) no.

    7) single

    8) amazon

    9) don't use that feature in games that do

    10) yes

    1. Yes it is very easy

    2. I usually use search but I do look at the recommendations.

    3. Force closing is a big problem and an app not supporting your device is huge too.

    4. I read the instructions.

    5. If the game is $2 or less and the demo version was fun. Also the fact that there was a demo version and I didn't have to pirate it to try it is a big thing.

    6. Yes but I prefer Bluetooth or multiplayer over the internet over passing the device. It shows how much work the dev puts into the app.

    7. Single player but the option of multiplayer is always a welcome option.

    8. I download ALL of them from the android market.

    9. Since I do not have a facebook I am indifferent on this subject.

    10. Yes, I do.

    Fairly easy but I usually find new apps in the 'New paid' or 'New free' section (where I should find new apps)
    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    I search through categories
    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    Most games have similar game play/type as other games already on the market
    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    I will only look at instructions if it offers me a tutorial, otherwise, I go with the latter
    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).

    I find it fairly easy but I also rely on websites like Android central to point me to stuff

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Most of the time I rely on recommendations, but I do browse the categories from time to time. I find the categories are too broad though and things cross categories from time to time

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    Most annoying problem I find is how fast some of these games go through my battery and how hot my phone gets.
    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    If its an angry birds clone or an obvious game mechanic I just wing it but I do check for tutorials and the such for anything else. I find if a game doesn't have one it doesn't bother me too much

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    If a game is original and can keep me busy from time to time its worth the price

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    Local multiplayer is always a nice addition

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    Just depends on my mood i guess

    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

    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    All the time, if a game is cross platform I recommend my IOS buddies get it too. Word of mouth tends to be the best way of spreading a good game I find

    2. Both: first through categories, then it's sorted by ratings.

    3. Force closes mainly

    4. usually wing it, unless there's an interesting intro/tutorial

    5. usually pay, to get rid of ads. $5 (or less) is a no-brainer

    6. never play multi-player

    8. always android market

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?
    Yeah, it’s not that hard to find newly posted apps.

    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    I search through categories and go by recommendations from friends and tech/android blogs.

    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    Incompatibility with certain phones/tablets and choppy graphics are annoying problems.

    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    I usually just wing it. Sometimes I read them, but if not I just take screenshots for later.

    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    If it looks very fun to me based on screenshots or videos online, and the price is good (around $10 max), I’ll buy it. Demo’s help too.

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    I haven’t played a game like that, but that does sound interesting.

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    I prefer single player for mobile devices, but online multiplayer is very fun for some games.

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

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    I usually turn that feature off or don’t use it. I only leave it on for Game Center on iOS.

    1. The best ways I find new apps is if they are featured on the main store page...or if I do a search for something specific (such as a megaphone app...or a newsreader)

    2. For games, I usually don't look at anything unless it was recommended from a blogging site like AndroidCentral, DroidLife, or Phandroid.

    3. Force closes is a top one...right up there though is that it's not compatible with my device.

    4. If there is a tutorial to play, I will play through it, but I don't read manuals.

    5. Being able to try for free is key. If it has no replay value, then it's not worth buying. Then it has to be the right price as I usually wait for the game to go on sale.

    6. I have never yet...but if the right game came along, I would. I could see something like a Catch Phrase type game fun to bring to a party.

    7. I have no preference.

    8. Android Market.

    9. Doesn't make a difference to me.

    10. Only if they are extraordinary.

    I don't have much trouble
    2. Do you rely on recommendations or do you search categories to find new games?
    Both, but mostly recommendations
    3. What is the most annoying problem with a new game e.g. force close, poor graphics?
    Weird force closes. Game isn't as fun as the screenshots or video make it seem.
    4. Do you read the instructions on how to play or just Wing it?
    I usually just wing it until I can't figure out how to do something. I look at the directions when needed though.
    5. When would you pay for a game? (Other than mobile versions of best selling PC/PSP etc games).
    When would I pay for a game? I guess that depends on how I like the free version. My preference would be a free version that has an in-app purchase to unlock/download the rest of the content.
    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?
    No way. I've played Monopoly like this once on my Kindle Fire, but that's where I draw the line.
    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?
    I prefer single player games that have multiplayer components. I like to play multiplayer, so that's a real bonus.
    8. Where do you download most of your games i.e. Android market, Amazon, GetJar?
    Probably equal. I haven't actually found any games that I would be willing to pay more than $2 for. Even at $.10 and free from Amazon, none of them hold my attention except for Uno.
    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?
    Kind of. I like to be able to upload it to the game server so that other players of the same game can see my scores. I don't care if it can go to Facebook or not, though, and I wouldn't do it if I had the option. Twitter, maybe.
    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?
    Yes. More accurately, I recommend games to them that I think they would like

    1. Do you find it easy to discover new apps on the Android Market?

    Not unless I know what I'm looking for. If I try to browse I just see a bunch of apps I already know about, and it's rare to find something new that I am actually interested in. I only took the time to browse more in depth when I first got my phone.

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

    I generally hear about an app / game first on a site like AndroidCentral or from a friend / social media.

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

    Force closes are always annoying. If an app doesn't work, it doesn't matter how good the idea is. Ads that get in the way of gameplay are also frustrating. Slow loading games and ads also annoy me.

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

    I generally wing it, and only refer to the instructions when I have a question. (Some games have a tutorial or splash screen with instructions that show up when you first play, and if the basic gameplay is not obvious, this is most helpful).

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

    I'd probably only pay for a game if I had the option to try a demo out first. If the game is enjoyable and seems worth the price for a full version/more features then I'll buy it. It's not usually worth it to me if the only difference is that it's ad-free or if the app isn't the BEST it can be (updated frequently and no major problems or missing features).

    6. Do you play games where multiplayer involves passing the handset round?

    Generally, no. If I'm in the same room with someone and want to play, I'm more likely to just pull out an actual board/card game. I also feel a bit weird having others use my phone.

    7. Do you prefer single player or multiplayer games?

    I would love to see more variety of multiplayer games, especially turn-based ones that you can play your turn whenever you have free time (like Words with Friends, etc). Most of these games are word games, which are fun, but I'd like to see some more inventive ones. Single player games are good, but there are more of them already out.

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

    Since I always try to check for Amazon's daily free app, I have a lot of games from there. However, most all my paid games have been purchased through the Android Market. I haven't used GetJar and don't intend to right now. I also have bought a couple through Barnes & Noble for my Nook Tablet.

    9. Do you like games where you can upload your scores to Facebook or other websites?

    I don't really use this feature.

    10. Do you recommend games you like to friends?

    Yes, I frequently recommend games to friends.
