The App Store is over expensive. We got similar applications for free that the App Store now would like us to pay. Some are at an “ok” price and others are just outrageously expensive. Lets start with the Iphone applications first: Electronic Books - $9.99 to $17.99 Currently 9 4 in a row - 4.99 Remember that game called...umm...well...I can't remember but it was on installer under the same name for free. This version just looks better and you can connect to another Iphone. Air Hockey - $0.99 This version of Air Hockey looks very bad compared to the installer, and you’re paying 99 cents more! Mahjong - $9.99 Looks a lot better than the installer version, and when I say that I mean it’s got a background now instead of black. So a $10 background. Finger painting - $1.99 No other way to say this, but this is Sketches on the installer. You can draw over pictures and maps. (Another) Air Hockey - $2.99 No pictures were included with this so I can only assume you’re getting ripped off. Flashlight - $0.99 Biggest rip off! Even on installer the entire app was just a white screen! Compared to other applications this is a rip off. Ok sorry this is the biggest rip off... English to German Dictionary - $29.99 This is Free on installer and I used it every day! FOR FREE! French to English Dictionary - $29.99 Come on this is terrible who would by this for that much? French Dictionary and thesaurus - $29.99 Really! There is more they are all the same price, I'm disappointed... Labyrinth - $6.99 Ok, even there was a price for the installer version, but it came with trials. Photo Dial - $14.99 Why would apple make us pay for an App that many got for free on the installer? Favoreter - $2.99 This is the same thing as Photo Dial! Why do we need a second? Pianist - $5.99 Everyone should all know this is free on installer Solitaire - $7.99 This game, on the installer, was fun! I played it everyday. But why 8 bucks? Sudoku - $7.99 Sudoku books cost less that this! Pool - $5.99 The installer version was fun; sure it was only a 5 game trial, but still. Blackjack - $2.99 A deck of cards cost about that much! For a bonus you can play with your friends for money! Vegas Solitaire - $2.99 Now this one is really disappointing...It is terrible...It’s not even in wide screen mode. The background is all grainy and the cards are really small. So free is better yet again. Video poker - $1.99 and $4.99 The cheep version of this game looks horrible and the expensive one looks amazing...I think apple is just doing this to make you buy the more expensive version. Now here is the ones I found to be really stupid. Web Search - $1.99 This is an application that allows you to search on either MSN or Yahoo...LIKE YOU COULDN'T GO THERE ON SAFARI! Weight Tracker - Free To summarize this app...You’re just writing down what your weight is, but on an Iphone. Sure it is good to know how much you loosed. Now here are 3 apps that do the same thing but cost different. VoiceNotes - Free Voice Notes - $9.99 Voice Record - $0.99 Now I was shocked when I saw the first two, the only thing that is different is there is a space in between 'Notes'. They are all the same...You can make as many Recordings as you wish. And surprisingly you can play them back. Why the price differences? And why 3? Two would be good enough. Picocalc Free - Free To be honest I don't know what this is, its in Japanese; it looks like the dialer on the Iphone Phone Saber - Free Now you might be thinking wow! A light Saber! All this is a graphic light Saber that moves back and forth while you move your Iphone side to side. I think pretending that my Iphone is a light saber is cooler then watching a graphic move back and forth. Paquet - $4.99 This is the weirdest version of Tetris yet. It’s just too weird, I would have to buy it to find out how to play. My Picks: Pcalc - $9.99 This is a scientific calculator/Unit converter. There is a Unit Converter on the installer and a scientific calculator but this one is combined and you can transfer your calculation into a different measurement with a couple clicks. Jott for Iphone - Free This is another voice recording application. However, this version records your notes and changes them to text. In other words this is a voice to text application. Now after reading the other three voice recorders this one takes the cake! Friends - $4.99 This application is just like the photo dial application I reviewed at the top. This one even looks cooler. Why are there so many similar applications? Anyways this is just the slandered click the photo and you dial the number, but if you didn't like the photo dial this one is for you. File Magnet - $4.99 This is one of the more impressive applications that I was sure apple wouldn't let happen. Basically, it allows you to use your Iphone as a portable drive in which you can store photos to word documents. The only downside is you need to have a Mac and it does not work on windows.
