Exclusive to Sprint in the U.S., App Pass is a subscription service that allows customers to access a hand-selected catalog of premium apps and games for $4.99 per month – after a 14-day free trial. App Pass offers unlimited access to these apps and games across two devices, and additionally, customers are given a $5 credit each month to spend on in-app purchases.
You may be used to paying monthly for access to a catalog of movies or music, so why not apps? Many customers find value in premium apps, but hesitate to make the purchase without knowing more about the app. With App Pass, Sprint makes it easier for its customers to “app all you want” with a curated list of popular premium apps.
