Got an iPhone? Got lots of money? These $1,000 apps might be up your alley
As you might expect, some of these apps are pure vanity and others actually serve a purpose. Others do not look like they deserve such a high price tag and we included one example below.
Developers make their apps for a number of reasons, and understandably, many of them want to make a little money to support their work. The most common ways for developers to do that are to charge a fee for the application, of which the common costs to the users are between $0.99 and $9.99. Another way is to use an advertising SDK, like AdDuplex, to feed advertisements through the application and allow the application to be downloaded for free.
Then there is this crop of applications, price tag, $999.99. A couple of which might be justified, and others look like a complete pipe-dream. Believe it or not, there are over 30 apps listed for $999 in iTunes. We will let you be the judge.

The price of an app exceeds the price of the phone. I mean, wtf! Its really ridiculous!

Okay okay... we can all agree on this one that these apps are specifically designed for rich snobs and retards...

You can buy a Surface Pro for the price of some of these apps. Much more utility in the Surface Pro (even with its deficient support for Flash in IE10).

Dude have you used IE10 on windows 7-8? I swear I'm sucking up my Google pride here but it is faster and smoother than chrome o_O More secure though? I think not! :P

What I am about to post applies specifically to the Surface Pro.
Try using IE10 in either tile (Modern/Corporate or whatever they call the UI) or Desktop mode. Go to phonearena.com Log into your PA account. Then try to respond to my post. Unless MS has updated IE10 in the past week, you won't be able to see the buttons to click (Flash issue).

Now the question is: do these apps come with a monocle? This way I can look and feel like a "sir" after buying these apps.

over rated and too damn much. another reason why its so over price. those people are just plain GREEDY who would spend 900$ on a app when u can either pay ur bills or buy a brand new phone that isn't a Iphone
