    It is funny, and I'm not entirely innocent. I could buy four 99 cent apps for what I spend on my morning drink, and I'll still occationally find myself agonizing over the purchase. Though more often than not it is more about whether the app will be what I want. I know I want that Blended Chai grande with whipcream, however little I actually need it. :D

    I think the point was that people will gladly spend a couple of dollars/pounds on a vente skinny cappuccino but baulk at 99 cents for an iPad app.

    There is a psychological barrier for paying digital apps. People won't mind paying for physical goods. Also no one just buys one single app for $1. People have to buy many of them (and many of them turn out to be crap) which does add up the cost. This puts people off from buying more apps even if they are just $1 apps.

    I do.




    If you read the reviews most will tell you it is crap. Then. Don't buy it. I hate when folks don't do that then come here and complain.;), when clearly, all the reviews stated it was crap.

    Just sayin'....
