Check out some of the most expensive iOS apps in the U.S.
If you're the type that finds it hard to dip into his wallet to pay more than $5 for an app, you are going to blanche over what developers are charging for the 20 most expensive iOS apps in the U.S. according to a chart produced by Dadaviz. The most expensive apps are priced at $999.99, and there are eight such apps available from the App Store. The category breakdown shows one finance app, one productivity app, one music app, one related to sports, one lifestyle app and three having to do with business.

One of the apps on top of the list is Alpha-Trader, which is an iPad only app designed to determine the optimal portfolio allocation for investment professionals. It also culls out top performing equities and funds based on a variety of metrics. Another of the high-end apps is app.Cash. This is a virtual cash register that you can employ on your iPhone or iPad. Cyber Tuner is software used to professionally tune a piano.

After the $999.99 range, the next level of expensive iOS apps is in the $299.99 to $499.99 range. Tap Menu, priced at $399.99, will allow you to design and print your own menu. At $349.99, Barcelona vs. Madrid is a soccer simulation game that seems quite pricey considering what it does. For $299.99, TouchChat AAC with WordPower is an iPad only app for those who have trouble speaking clearly due to an illness or disease. The app offers a standard QWERTY keyboard with keys reserved for some of the most common words spoken. Five U.S. English and two British English synthesized voices are available. For the same price, Water Globe lets you create virtual snow globes for your amusement.

Some apps have dropped in price and while they still seem high priced, compared to how much they used to cost you might consider these a bargain. One such app, Vizzywig 8HD, has dropped from $999.99 to $99.99. This is a video editing app that promises to capture video on your Apple iPhone 6 at eight times the resolution of the phone's camera. For $199.99, G-Map U.S. West will give you vocal turn-by-turn navigation without a Wi-Fi or internet connection. Here is a hint, HERE Maps does the same for free.

Oh god. This article makes me think the Apple users who buy crap like this are the stupidest people alive. I realize it's their right if they want to spend money on this junk. But it's also my right to think they're dumb as rocks.

Oh god, posts like this make me think people bashing Apple users for apps available in app store are stupidest people alive. Seriously, how can You think that anyone bought that crap? Those apps are made only for marketing purposes, someones sees app for 400$ and it catches his attention but he won't buy it, people are not that stupid. Please use your imagination better than now.

developers use this for testing purposes and place holders. its a trend even in the play store. its also a good way of making sure your idea is the first out there even if its not finished. i have done this for a few apps and then adjusted the price to free once i was finished with the app. also a great way to test patching of your own app before the final release. patching is sometimes tricky. or at least it was in the past

Most of these have no purchases. There's no reviews or anything.

Just because they sell it, doesn't mean a lot of people are actually buying it. And actually, a "free" app like Google Maps does not do the same thing. Google Maps has to download the maps, and it's cacheing capabilities are limited. Apps like G-Map store the maps on your phone so they don't need an internet connection to navigate.

Interesting how most of the over priced apps are on iOS with the most purchasers. Makes sense since Apple users are stupid.

Or maybe iOS apps are far less pirated. Also, anyone who is calling others stupid based off of a phone selection needs to seriously consider taking some medication.
