    I've seen apps from 99cent up to about 20 dollars. My friends have been telling me that they have seen an app of around 500$?!!! Is this true or are they pulling my leg? Has anyone seen a really really expensive app, if so, how much?

    There was one that was $999 (no?). It was called 'iAmRich'. All it offered was a picture of some gem. 10 people bought it.

    And a year on, the developer of I Am Rich is apparently yet to see a single cent of what he earned from the sale of the app.

    What happened? Did Apple pocket the money or gave it back to people who bought it?

    Two or three people got a refund because they said they "accidentally" purchased it, Apple pocketed their 30%, leaving something like $5600 (I think) for the developer.
