Sure there are tons of 0.99 apps from the 100,000 on the AppStore, but what are your most expensive apps on your iPhone? Lets start with over $20 for now.

For me it's:

Jaadu VNC $24 -- can remotely add torrents on my media pc without going to it.
Navigon $90 -- Best GPS driving software on AppStore.
I am Rich $999 - (just kidding :D )

I use LogMeIn Ignition - $29.99 to remotely access my MBP, more or less does the same thing as Jaadu VNC but is easier to setup and I can get to my laptop on pretty much any network it happens to be connected to without messing around with forwarding ports or anything like that.

The most expensive app I have is iBird Explorer Pro when it went on sale for $20. Everything else is either free or under 2 bucks.

I'm reading the Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy" at the moment, comes to around £25, at £4.99 per book (in-app purchases). Well worth it! :)

...and TomTom. Not as funny as the books.

None over $20, but I do use the $19.99 app OmniFocus daily (I also have the desktop version on my home + work Macs).

I also think Reunion was around that price back when I got it, but I see it's a bit cheaper now...I also don't use it too much, but it's nice to have the whole genealogy database with me all the time... ;)

- I also have Oxford Deluxe. It's cheaper now, but I got it at $59.99
- Roget's II Thesaurus. $12.99 (I think it was closer to $20 when I got it).
- Bird Pro. $29.99.
- Universalis (a Catholic app, with free lifetime support). $32.99
- StarMap Pro (on sale, almost 20 -- $18.99).
- The Opera. $39.99.

I'm considering getting WolframAlpha, but I am not sure yet. Too expensive at 50 bucks. And if Apple had an NHL league pass, showing CBC games, I'd buy it.

I use all these pricey apps almost daily. They were worth it.

Sygic Australia - $79.99AU - Well worth it IMO. Most up to date mapping for my area.

Thats about it on the over $20 apps. Looking into the wolfram alpha app, but $60AU is a little too much ATM.

I also like and use Logmein Ignition. I tried most all of the VNC's and prefer LogMeIN. Much easier to setup. I have almost 150 machines on my logmein account now. :)

I also have REV and love it. it's $40 now.

What makes you use omnifocus rather than the top app that's out Pocket Informant??

Just Navigon at 70. Best 70 spent and will definitely throw in 20 for the live traffic.

Also what is the difference between logmein ignition and jaadu??
Jaadu involves a lot more technical fiddling to get to work properly, where with LogMeIn you register for an account and then install free client software on the host computer, there is no messing around with opening & forwarding ports on the router, setting up a dynamic DNS server account and getting VNC to work on the host.

Also if you use LogMeIn on a laptop then you can get to it no matter what network it is on, where with VNC you would need to do the router configuration for each network and in places like workplaces then you can forget that.

Basically LogMeIn takes away all the hassle.
