• Another $1,000 App Hits The App Store

    Since when has the App Store become a high-end boutique for pricey applications that most of us can't afford? Although the App Store is far from dominated by exorbitant apps, a lot of people are talking about the latest pricey addition to the App Store. And unless you're an aspiring barrister, you might not have a need for this particular app and the price tag that accompanies it.

    From Maximum PC:

    Remember when those eight saps paid $1,000 on a useless iPhone app called I Am Rich? As it turns out, that's the highest Apple allows developers to charge through the App Store, and nearly two years later, another $1,000 app has emerged, one that might actually be worth it.
    The target audience for the app in question - known as BarMax CA - would be law students working diligently to prepare for the bar exam. Although freshly graduated lawyers will likely earn a pretty penny in their future, the cost of law school won't allow too many students to cough up an extra $1,000 for this app, despite how it's being billed as a nice supplement or replacement for other bar-prepping procedures.

    Even still, $1,000 is a lot of scratch to pay for an iPhone app, but only a fraction of the $3,000 to $4,000 would-be test takers are used to shelling out for this type of test prep through BarBri.
    If you're concerned that the app is full of style and light on substance, you're wrong in that department. BarMax CA comes replete with more than 1GB worth of prep work, thousands of pages of documents, and hundreds of hours of preparatory audio clips for your studying pleasure.

    As it stands, BarMax CA is the most expensive app in the App Store, a distinction previously held by a home security app that sells for $899.
    In case you're wondering, it was a group of Harvard lawyers who came up with the idea for BarMax, which was designed by "top iPhone developers" in order to produce what is being billed as the "only complete bar exam prep solution available for purchase in the iPhone App Store.
