Your most expensive app

#1
I didn't buy anything from the store yet and i was thinking about buying the Poweramp app and I was wondering what was the most expensive app/game you ever bought?

In all the years I have been using Android and Google Play, I have yet to pay for an app. I know that my ex-partner has paid for a few though. I think most of them were books but there were also one or two games. The only app I really feel that inclined to pay for is Fruity Loops music studio. I already use it on my laptop though, so I haven't bothered just yet. It's not exactly a cheap app either priced at $19.99.

My most expensive app is like a $5 browser app. The only other app I've every paid for is a game called Typing Maniac. Other than that I've always limited my app downloads to free apps.

Of course that's assuming you're talking about mobile apps. If you're including desktop apps them I've spent hundreds.

Wow, that's a good catch. I've spent thousands on desktop apps, never mind hundreds.
If you're talking about desktop apps, I bought Vegas Pro for 600 buckaroos.

Personally I have to say that i have never found any app on the app store that's actually worth purchasing. I think if you look around enough and know exactly what you want from an app, then you'll be able to find a free version that's been developed.
I'm not saying that the apps that are being developed and charge a fee arent worth purchasing, i just find that theres a lot of great free stuff available aswell that often gets overlooked.

Ah yes, I hadn't considered desktop/laptop applications. If we're talking about Windows software, then yes I've probably also spent thousands too over the years, although not so much recently. The most expensive piece of software I have is worth about £400 ($800) but it's the best piece of software I've ever invested in and is extremely advanced technically.

This is more or less the same topic so, why IS pc software so expensive by the way? I know a lot of work goes into the making and programming of the software but even so...some of the prices quoted for just your bog standard operating systems is a little ridiculous.

Is Vegas Pro the video editing app? That's insanely expensive. Did you expense it or was it a personal purchase? I can't imagine spending 600 bucks on something I can get for free

I can't imagine spending 600 on a app or price of software full stop!
There's a lot of freeware around these days, some good, granted some not so good but I think if somebody spends a bit of time searching they can practically find anything for nothing.

I agree, the price of software like standard Operating Systems is ridiculously costly. Then, when you haven't got the OS software you need and your computer messes up, the shop ends up charging you for the OS aswell as the cost of the repair!

Oh, you've got no chance of finding a freeware version of the software I'm talking about. Well, actually you have but it's terrible in comparison and is nowhere near as advanced (which is what I need). I'm not really talking about software for the home user but commercial software used for commercial audio engineering purposes.
