    Looking at Apps like Angry Birds, a really popular app on IOS that continues to be a really popular but is free on Android OS, should apple step in and tell App owners they can not charge IOS device owners for an app while given the app away for free on other platforms?

    I say Yes......

    I say, no. Let the developers charge as much as they want.

    Ummmm, it's not the full version I believe, and they will be charging once it gets to full complete stage! And it has ads for now because they aren't charging...

    And there is a free lite version..

    Also,. my .02 but dont be so cheap, it's $.99 you can literally look in your couch cushions and find the change to cover it!

    The iPhone version is what, a whole 99 cents?

    The Android version has ads.

    Many people would prefer paying the 99 cents.

    The current Android version is the full version. They also have the seasonal one for free.

    Don't think its Apple's business to regulate prices. It is mostly driven by the programmers.

    on android you can google the app and get it for free anyways, so wheres is the point! apple apps are a lot more professionally put together and have nicer anesthetics. well worth the money imo. android apps look **** regardless and theres not a single android app that can look as good as apple in in any way or function better. i be more pissed paying for an android app

    Agreed. It is for the developers to decide what to charge for apps. Not Apple.

    True. In iOS the whole app is flawlessly optimized for iPhones and iPads, but on android they lag and just feel amateur.
