    Hey guys!
    I wanted to buy the dress assistant application from apple.com,
    but then they want to charge me $19.95.
    Are apps supposed to be THAT expensive?

    Thought you want to buy. I guess there's a lot more expensive than that.

    app prices vary for the mac. as do apps for PC.

    some retail for as low as 2.99, while others as much as 70$. but then again, there's the importance of google and looking for freeware alternatives, or cheaper alternatives, when you're in the market of buying something.

    The Online Apple Store has:

    Office 2008 for Mac - Home and Student Edition- $149.95

    So, yeah, software really does range in price from cheap to WHOA. Depends on who makes it and what it does (and how much you want it, I guess).

    Just wondering, is this for the iPhone/iPod Touch?

    I can guess why the app is priced that way: it's a whimsical application - reminds me somehow of the young and shallow Alicia Silverstone character in Clueless. If you're going to complain about the price, that means you don't really need it.

    On the other hand, the Office 2008 costs nine times more (per bad_boy's post), but it may be a small investment considering Office 2008 makes a person more productive at work and school.

    Ahh, there we go. Well, happy app-buying (if you do decide to), OP :)
