    Hey guys, I'd like to give you guys some heads up on what I just stumbled upon. The app named in the subject is currently going at $999.99! The author gave some very dubious information, and couldn't even prove what the 'gorgeous' user interface looks like. I believe its an app that connects to Google Translate most of the time. As of this writing, the author has changed the app's title into Handy Book and admitted that the app is still in beta.

    When I highlighted this in my website earlier this morning, the app was known as Multi Lingua.

    I have submitted this to Digg as well. Let's hope nobody gets duped into buying, especially during trying times like this.

    Cheers!

    I've just found it on the UK Store, it's £599.99 on there. I think it's the most expensive app ever. Was it a mistake do you think?

    I think you'd have to be a fool to spend that much on an app like that. haha

    This app will probably get removed too, this guy is trying to pull off the same thing I am Rich did, prob added something useful enough to pay 99 cents for as an excuse, but not 999
