    Prices are pretty steep for iPad apps compared to iPhone. I know that there is more work for developers to make an iPad app.... but 4 or 5 times the iPhone cost is not going to sell well. When an iPhone app costs $1 or $2, the iPad version shouldn't be $10.

    People need to stop comparing the ipad to the iphone/touch. The ipad is not the iphone.

    iPad app store interface looks very nice.

    I wonder how well the iPad apps -- since they seem to be more expensive -- will sell?

    Don't rush out and buy the apps. Odds are we'll see them return to earth's atmosphere after the initial excitement factor ends in a few months. Only buy the ones you absolutely need or want and can't wait for.

    Maybe through the SDK?

    Was that the desktop version of the app store? I noticed a mouse pointer.

    When the iPhone app store was released, many developers were shocked that the public expected to pay so much less for iPhone apps than Mac apps. While some iPhone apps are quicker to create than Mac apps, a $3 iPhone app is not ten times quicker to create than a $30 Mac app. The difference was in perceived value in the minds of the general public: a device with a smaller physical size led to the perception that its software should be cheaper.

    The iPad is a much larger device, closer in size to many laptops than it is to the iPhone. By that metric, the prices should be more in line with desktop software.

    I don't know, I really hate the Brushes dev. Looking at that video, it has NOTHING the iPhone version doesn't have. No new brushes or features that I could see, and nothing in the description to indicate otherwise.

    He just added a bigger canvas to fit the screen and upped the price.

    By that logic, using the video output cable to hook up the iPad to a 42" lcd tv should result in the app you are using to cost $400.
