ForeFlight Mobile is the most expensive. But, its $70, not $80.

i think its funny how there's a flashlight app that costs 1.50 or somethin, its just a blank white screen, granted theres one that costs money which gives you the option of a red screen so you preserve your night vision lol. theres also a free one.

well, its 40 here, which is $80
but i know its not a direct conversion as apple sets the price, so $70 is the US price, and 40 is the UK equivalent according to apple...

But chances are if you're a pilot with your own private plane, you can afford that application. From what I see on the features page, it looks very useful if you're a pilot.

Agree, people need to understand there will be a complete set of niche/professional/enterprise apps that are very unique and useful to the small groups of people they are built for. Apparently the app in question lets you file your flight plan? cool!

Imagine an app that a doctor would use- I dunno, either a medical reference or whatever doctors might use. I'm not sure doctors are expecting a 1.99 app.

On the other had, a small game that millions of people will buy- well, that is your $10 or below app.

Some of the planned medical applications are going to be hundreds of dollars if I remember correctly, but to the people using them they will be worth it. Plus, apps that have a smaller market but are very useful to that market usually do cost more, they need to or the developers won't bother making them I guess.

netter anatomy is very useful and aint cheap at $40 USD.

as for the flight weather info, that is extremely useful for pilots and those who travel via private air travel.

as someone who regularly travels on emergency med flights, im considering both....

Here's how you judge whether an app is too expensive: can you write your own version of that app for less than the developer is asking? (Assume that you're being paid at least minimum wage.)

:rolleyes:

The most expensive ever is "I am rich", costing $999.99, (the most available for the app store), that basically does nothing.

Before getting your Wi-Fi hacked, of course.:D
But yeah, there are some professional apps that do cost a lot.
And to the Professionals, it isn't much.
