Poll: What Do You Think Of The New Lower Prices in App World?

Until today App World developers were forced to price their apps from $2.99 or up. This was arguably both a good and bad thing based on what side of the fence you sit on. Other app stores are full of 99 cent apps which leads to quite a few one trick pony apps. I used to think that the $2.99 price point was intended to promote quality apps but I may have been wrong.

RIM let us know that as of today developers will be able to price their apps at $0.99 and $1.99. This leads me to believe that the reason for the $2.99 price point was because of PayPal. Now that RIM has carrier billing and credit card billing along with the new 70/30 revenue share with developers things have changed.

So I am curious what you think of these new lower price points in App World:

  1. hmmm… i might have missed the 60/40 ratio. I thought it was 70/30.

  2. Little bit of column A, little bit of column B.

  3. I think its a good move to have cheaper apps. ITunes has those and there are spam apps. They just have to watch the app approval process!

  4. It will mean more apps for sure. And if there ARE a slew of “slam apps” it means devs think BlackBerry users are worth targeting. I say if we don’t see a bunch soon, not that I want em mind you , it means even spam devs have given up on BlackBerry.

  5. Your right is 70/30

  6. show me other methods of payment and then we’ll talk
