    Default Issues with Google Play

    I am a new Android user (see ya iphone) just trying to find my way around. For the most part everything is intuitive but I'm having trouble finding paid apps in the Google Play store. Every search comes up with free apps only. I've tried clicking on the apps section instead of searching but I get the same thing. I should note that I have successfully downloaded free apps and one paid app. The paid app was found via search and was the root version of Titanium backup however I have not rooted my device yet and it does no appear in the app drawer.
    My device specifics are as follows:
    LG G2 AT&T version running Kit Kat 4.4
    I hope this helps and thanks for looking.

    It might depend on the app. There may not always be a paid version, there may be a way to get rid of ads in the app itself.
    What specifically did you have in mind?

    Well I looked at some reviews for Sophos antivirus and I prefer to support the company so I wanted to get the paid version. I get the same thing when I search for Avast and AVG. It's very frustrating.

    I just took a look and I couldn't find a paid version of their app on Play either. It may be an in app upgrade only.

    Should I be using the android market instead of Google Play? I assumed that Play was now the default.

    Play is Google's official app store. The paid version of the app might be in the app somewhere.

    I agree. A number of apps will either allow you to upgrade (or donate) within the app, or will direct you to the website.

    And kudos to you for wanting to support the devs!

    Avast (I don't know about the others) has an "Upgrade to Premium" button when you first install it.

    Avast and avg are free antiviruses , so you go to the play store and go to Paid sector , there you will find the paid apps .
