There’s absolutely no logical explanation for the info we have for you today. No rhyme or reason… One iOS app (VIP Black) costs €999.99 and to “qualify” to buy it you have to prove your net worth is at or above 1 million pounds.
Before looking at some more outrageously expensive apps, let’s take a look at some data to put in context. 90,000 million apps were downloaded to phones in 2016. Developers received around $89 billion from advertising in their products, and Google and Apple received $15 billion in commission from the downloads. Experts say the mobile app market is set to reach $189 billion by 2020.
