    How much do you think apps will cost now? Some apps will still be 99c but because of the high quality of the hardware things are going to get in depth.

    Will there even be very many free apps that are good?

    Well we all know it can run ipod touch/iphone games so those will be the same price, but I'd like to see developers making much more complicated games, such as real fps's, now that it's bigger and more capable. I'd say for games made specifically for iPad, around $15 as long as it's a full featured game.

    I'd be happy to see higher prices. AppStore prices are /too/ cheap. From an indie developer's standpoint, software is terribly undervalued.

    I would assume the new iPad specific would be more expensive.



    Not iRa Pro exp*nisive, but expensive.

    As a developer, my prices won't change from iPhone apps to iPad apps. I can't speak for other developers, but for me, I see no real reason to gouge my customers *just* because they bought a different interface.

    I'm sure you'll see some $20-$30 software for the iPad, but I think that for the most part, apps will be similarly priced for the iPad and iPhone.

    Also keep in mind that apps will work on both devices, so devs won't want to alienate their iPhone users. You'll have some exclusives, but most devs will want the largest possible user base.

    deving for this wont take much extra work due to the included SDK frameworks and etc... so prices should change much (like 3GS only games)

    I think they may start originally charging more, to see what they can get away with. If apps don't initially sell, they may come down in price.

    Expect most games to be about the same price range they are now. Utilities may cost more depending on how useful they are (like the iWork suite).
