Would You Pay $1,000 For An iPad App?

Apps in iTunes range in price from free to $999.99. No, that is not a typo, there are about four apps these days that are priced at almost $1,000.

BarMax CA and BarMax NY are study courses to help law students prepare for the bar exam in California and New York. What do you get for the steep price? According to the app’s listing, you get a two-month course in a 1 gigabyte app. It comes with thousands of test pages and hours of audio lectures. But still, these are arguably the most expensive digital textbooks around.

But these law apps aren’t the only apps charging a fortune. PC Magazine has more: “According to a list published last month by The Most Expensive Journal, the BarMax CA and BarMax NY app shares the title for ‘most expensive app’ with two others: the $999.99 Intuition Control Solo WolfVision (which sounds more like a Charlie Sheen product than mobile app) and the $999.99 ‘The Alchemist SMS’ app.”
