    Why does it say "Free" in the description in the store but have a $1.99 price tag?

    Oops!! Thanks for catching that mistake!! I will fix it now. That was left over from another guide we have up.

    Most of our guides are free, but the demand on this one has been so high that we've set it to be paid (and it's been successful at this price, surprising even us).

    You might look through all your guides as many of them note they are "free" but in fact are not.

    I am fixing them now actually. We only have 4 guides that cost anything, out of about 15 that are free.

    Ok they are all fixed. It will take a couple of hours for Apple to propagate the changed to the App Store.

    I don't know how you can say the game is short. It can take you 50+ hours to complete all the quests.

    Too short? You must have just run through the main missions. There's a tonne of stuff to be found off the beaten track.

    Also, Google "Fallout Wiki" and save yourself money. You really don't need this app.

    If it's successful I don't begrudge the guy for charging money. I think there was a study on a website showing that unless you have a really sticky app that gets played a lot, it's probably more profitable in the long run to charge for it.

    :confused:I enjoyed the guide part of the app, but I absolutely cannot stand the fact that the app is littered with ads as well. It completely ruins the experience, especially since we have to wait a while for the next ad to load before it's able to open up the section selected. How can you charge for an app and then also have ads?? Most people purchase an app because they can't stand the ads (myself included). Please do something about this issue.

    It would be nice if there was more than 1 picture to show the app off in itunes.
