Free Apps? At What Price? Last time I checked there was 140,000 Apps in the iTunes App Store ... but that was a few weeks ago so there's probably about 150,000 now. Literally thousands of new Apps ar


最後に私はiTunesのApp Storeの14万アプリがあったがチェック...それは、現在約15万おそらくあるかように数週間前だった。新しいアプリの文字通り何千も毎週承認されている。新しいiAppsの潮流は止められないです、と一日で成長する。

それらのアプリの大多数は無料アプリです。そしてそれらのほとんどは私が彼らの手にあまりに多くの時間を持つ誰かによって作られた"迷惑アプリ"と呼んでいるものです...コー​​ダは興味を失っているので、さらに発展されることはありませんアプリ。大部分はこれらAppsは、App Storeをいっぱいにする。

If there's 500 Apps in the App Store that are truly useful, I'd be surprised. That leaves 149,500 Apps that are junk Apps. So what should Apple do about it?
In my opinion, the first thing Apple should do is get rid of free Apps. Free Apps serve no purpose.



無料のアプリでは、技術革新を阻害する。それは、経済のすべての母校です。のための無料アプリで、$ 5は、あなたがiPhoneアプリに課金できる最大となっていると、まだ人々はそれを購入を検討している。彼らは$ 3で同様のアプリケーションを見つけることができれば、彼らは、代わりに時間の99%をその一つを買うよ。

しかし、アプリケーション開発者が有用と革新的なソフトウェアの作成に時間とリソースを置くこととして、いくつかの大量の演算を行う必要があります。あなたが5ドルであなたのアプリケーションを販売している場合は、$ 50,000を作るために10,000枚を販売する必要があります。その5ドルアプリの多くの一体です!あなたが同じアプリに$ 50を充電することができれば、あなたはお金と同じ量を作るために1,000台を販売するだけで済みます。

そして新しく、革新的なアプリケーション開発のための市場はどこかへ行ってしまう。のための無料の価格で、我々は新しいiPhoneアプリのために費やすことが多すぎるようにも5ドルを見に来ている。 Appは偉大な外観とうまく動作するとしても、それが3ドル安くなぜなら、我々は、低品質のアプリケーションを選択してくださいよ...またはすべてのベスト、無料。誰のがとにかくその5ドルを過ごすのもいい。

It's $5.
$5, people.
But even $5 can't compete with free ...

    The thing with the app store is that the low cost is offset by shear volume. With ~85 million iPhones and iPod Touches, you don't need much of a market share to make a decent profit. With apps in the $0.99-$4.99 range, I think a lot of people don't think twice about buying an app. It's a pure impulse buy. But I do think customers expect a lot more for the price now. If you look at the top revenue generators quite a few are in the $10-$100 range. So if you make a quality product and can have the person justify the cost behind, it will sell. I find the biggest problem is just getting seen because, as you mentioned, almost all apps are crap.

    Ooo busted ... but if we HAD to charge $0.99 I wouldn't complain ... we've had almost 1,000 of those Free Logic Pro Primer Apps downloaded in the last 3 weeks ... blows my mind really.

    What gets me when looking at the app store are the number of negative reviews for very useful apps where people complained because it cost £1.19 (less than the price of a return bus fare here) or £1.79 (can you buy one beer for this anymore?)... you get my point. But, I think iPad App prices will be marginally higher.

    Yeah totally ... "This $0.99 app is too expensive" ... what?!? If you saw $0.99 sitting in the gutter you'd probably leave it for the next homeless person that passed by ...
