Apple iPad Apps Price: More Expensive than iPhone

By Peter Chubb - Apr 2, 2010

Tomorrow is the launch of the Apple iPad and the App store already has a number of Apps already for tablet device. We are not certain how many applications are available, but we do know that users will not be happy on the price. We need to inform you that they are more expensive than iPhone apps.

The comparison of prices between the two are somewhat shocking, Telegraph Blogs gives us a fine example of this – Field Runners for the iPhone costs just $2.99, the iPad version will cost $7.99. The biggest increase is Flight Control, $0.99 for the iPhone, $4.99 for the iPad an increase of 404 percent.

Do not get us wrong there are still bargains to be had – with many the same price as the iPhone, but we wonder what the price of some of the new apps will be like? The Telegraph has asked a valid question- will iPad App prices slowly come down or will iPhone Apps increase?

One thing is certain; the price you pay for an iPad app could help determine the success of Apple’s tablet

    I just got my iPad, the hype is gone and the prices are still more expensive. We as consumers have a vote though, if you don't buy they will be forced to lower prices. I also noticed there are not as many free light versions of programs on the iPad, I have bought many apps due to being able to play the free lite versions. I am more adverse to laying down good money for a product I have not tested. I believe they are shooting themselves in the foot if they don't continue the reasonable pricing and free trials of the iPhone.

    Let's hope once the Windows and linux competitors get off their duffs and release the competitive products it forces Apple to lower pricing.

  • I think your hunch might be right.

    App developers are understandably taking advantage of the early excitement, but I think as time goes by and the number of iPad Apps in the market increases I think prices will come down.
