What is the most money you have paid for an iOS app?

And are you happy with that purchase?

Only count the actual cost you paid, so if you bought an app on sale, it’s the sale price you paid that matters.

I paid £10 for Beejive back in the 2.x days. It was definitely worth it, so much better that the other free/cheaper clients at that point. Just way more customisable, nice UI, supported file transfers. Still a great client.

I spent $18.99 on Starmap Pro. There were only a couple features missing from the ~$2.99 version, but they were deal breakers, so I guess I'm overall happy that I got what I wanted. Finally I had a planetarium app in my pocket again after putting my Palm TX to rest two years prior.

Close Second:

I just spent $14.99 on techBASIC (a BASIC program compiler, with access to iOS objects) thinking I would play with it on vacation last month. Still haven't touched it, :rolleyes: but do not regret the purchase, yet.

Back in the days of Palm Pilots, I made great use out of PocketC (a pared-down C-compiler) over the years. techBASIC is the closest thing I've found to that functionality on an iDevice.

Regards,
Tom

I suppose I ought to answer my own thread’s question…

I just bought SkySafari Plus on sale for $9.99, which is normally $14.99. (Also note: the basic version is currently on sale for free, usually $2.99).

TomTom was 50 bucks. Traffic updates were like 20 bucks.
I was an early adopter, so I paid $99 for the US and Canada version. :eek: Well worth it at the time, since standalone gps devices were $200-300 back then. I'm a frequent flyer: Having one less device to pack (or forget to pack) is important.

Oh yeah, and my wife has it on her phone too - so that really halves the price.

I suppose I can't count iTunes Match as a real app, so all of those $5 apps I've bought are the most expensive.

Omnigraffle for iPad cost me about 40 euros which makes it the most expensive iOS App I've bought. While talking about Mac App, it was Adobe Photoshop CS5 which I've updated to CS6 not so long time ago..:)

I bought TomTom when it was on sale for $34.

I rarely use most of the apps that I have bought or downloaded so now I rarely buy or download anything anymore.

$19.95 for Archers's Mark + $6.99 for Archer's Score in app purchase. But to be honest I got them both for free since I was their guinea pig for testing validity of the marks generated.

I purchased PAGES for use on my ipad, think it was $19.99. I would be willing to spend big $ for the right app thought.
I just bought the logitech link today. Although it comes with hardware it is essentially a $100 app

LOL if it's ever compromised, then whatever I paid for 1Password could turn out to be just the tip of the iceberg, as far as the ultimate cost is concerned :eek:
