The Most Expensive iPhone Apps

Everyone loves it when they get something for free, especially if it works. However, most of us are fully aware that when it comes to smart phone apps, the word ‘free’ always means that you’re going to be bombarded with adverts attempting to get you to either upgrade to a paid version with more functionality, or buy something else entirely.

This article however deals with the antithesis of ‘free’ and as such will be discussing the other end of the scale – i.e. the most expensive iPhone applications.

Probably the most infamous example was released back in 2008 and called ‘The $1,000 app’, which simply displayed a picture of a red apple once it was downloaded and had the tagline ‘I am rich’. Needless to say, Apple took the app down quickly but not before a few gullible people had downloaded and paid for it.

In contrast, there are some legitimate applications which do cost a fortune. Here is a list of 4 and the reasons (debatable) why;

MobiGage NDI - £699.99

According to iTunes – “MobiGage is a metrology iPhone application used for the inspection of manufactured parts and assemblies. MobiGage creates, edits, and runs measurement plans and automates inspection processes.”

To surmise – it measures things when paired with something else.

QSFFStats - £699.99

The App Store describes it as “QSFFStats app will allow you to keep track of Flag Football stats for all passing leagues.” Clearly specialist stuff.

CyberTuner - £699.99

An app which helps a person tune a piano.

How did we ever manage in the olden days?

VIP Black - £699.00

This is an app for millionaires and when downloaded it seeks verification of the individuals net worth before it will work. Benefits of using the app include;

  • Be treated like a VIP across their partner venues 
  • Benefit from unique VIP privilege rates with many of their partner services 
  • Receive complimentary room upgrades at luxurious hotels 
  • Take advantage of priority booking at premium restaurants 
  • Receive complimentary amenities at various partner venues 
  • Get priority access to unique events and experiences 
  • Access a concierge directly through the app 
  • Book private yachts, private jets, private islands, and more, directly through the application 
  • Receive invitations to exclusive VIP evenings 
  • Purchase the unique, limited edition iPhone

So there you go, 4 very expensive applications which are available now – so what are you waiting for??
