    Does anyone know a tweak that displays all items on the app store and iTunes app with +1 cent, so that $.99 displays as $1 now (even if it still costs .99)

    No such tweak.

    A penny saved is a penny earned.

    Because you are the one who created a thread on it, you could explain why ;)

    I would just rather see $1 instead of $.99. Remove psychological pricing.

    I totally agree with OP
    I would download this tweak if it existed.

    Luckily in Norway 99¢ costs 7kr which is even enough.
    Problem here though is that it is displayed as 7,00 kr. I'd rather id displayed as 7kr.

    Also for instance Minecraft costs 49,00kr, but I'd rather it was displayed as 50kr. Not 50.00kr or 50,00kr, but 50kr.

    contact Apple say you'ed rather pay more and to round up. I would think this tweak would be difficult if possible your basically asking a tweak to round up and lie for every app and music in the store just because you don't want the psychological price of 99 vs $1. sounds like you need to start more of a movement then find a tweak.

    I don't shop for clothes :p

    But when I am required to, I don't go to JCP cause there isn't one near me.

    ahh ok, I made the relation because JCP uses round numbers on prices now :)

    LMAO:D
    Talk about weird requests.
    How about a tweak that lists them all as free?

    Lol this was one of the most entertaining threads I've read! Sounds like someone needs to re-evaluate how well they can control themselves in the app store ;)

    Seems pretty hurtful. You'd be out an extra penny that otherwise could of gone to something else.

    seems like everyone does this. i was just thinking of something like this today when driving past an auto dealer. wondered how many people round 8995 (for example) to 8000 in their head.

    I don't think you realize, I am not actually paying the extra cent, I just see it with the extra cent.

    So is it that hard to controll or realize what you're buying or spending? The extra 1 cent displayed will make such a difference?

    Again back to this ^! ;) I also think it's safe to say your tweak doesn't exists.

    Yes it makes a difference, that's why they display it as such.
