Price of iPad Apps vs Android
Let me preface this by saying I think all developers should be entitled to make money off their work. It's only fair, and I think we should pay for our apps.
I have an app on my Mac that I think I paid around 30-40 dollars or so called 1Password. It's a very nice password keeper and all you need is one click to get to a site that is pw protected after you've entered the master password.
About 2 months ago or so this same app became available on Android. It was free. Took a few steps but I got it synced to my mac and I had all my passwords on my Droid 2. Nice.
Yesterday somehow I caught wind that it was also on iPad so this morning I went to install. Then I saw the price. $9.95 for the regular for iPad and $14.95 for the "HD" which I think is a term that means donate more dollars.
People in the Android world think that the Devs should be happy to do this for everyone and at no charge. They complain about a $5.00 app, let alone a $15.00 one.
My point I'm getting at is I'd like to know why apps freely distributed in Android cost so much over here in the Apple world. Again, I want the devs to get their dollars, but isn't this kind of extreme?
BTW I paid for the $14.95 dollar app. Either these devs need to start charging more on Android (unlikely) or the price needs to go down in the App Store.
And please forgive me if this has been a topic of discussion many times, I admit I didn't search. I'm kind of letting off some steam.
