Have you ever browsed Apple’s AppStore and laughed at one of those apps priced $10 or more? Take a look at these apps which make that $10 price tag look like an absolute bargain.
While certain apps such as professional tools and textbooks are expensive for good reason, other apps will make you wonder if some developers are out to deliberately rip off unwitting users.
In any case, here are a few of the most expensive apps (useful or otherwise) available in the AppStore:
Perfect Penalty 2012 – $299.99
This app’s description claims that this soccer game has “the most realistic graphics” and “the most realistic simulation,” but user reviews say otherwise. For a game that costs almost as much as a brand new iPad itself, having a pathetic customer rating of just 2 stars surely indicates that you can also call this a Perfect Waste of Money.
iDIA – Diagnostic Imaging Atlas, Small Animal Support – $399.99
Here’s a great example of how technology can help others. iDIA is designed so veterinarians can give clients very detailed explanations of procedures or conditions regarding their pets by using cutting-edge graphics, animations, and illustrations.
The Alchemist SMS – $449.99
No this isn’t some insanely priced text messaging app – the “SMS” in its title stands for “Scrap Management System.” This utility app is designed to reduce raw material costs for steel and scrap metal recycling. If you think it’s too expensive, it used to be $999.99.
VIP Black – $999.99
According to its description, VIP Black is “the world’s first premium lifestyle app.” If you’re wealthy enough to spend a whopping $999.99 on an app, VIP Black will treat you to unique privileges from their “global range of luxury partners and services.” But get this – upon downloading the app, you’ll also need to verify that your assets are above $1.5 million.
