Because you can do something doesn't make it any less absurd. Personally I'd doubt his figures and take it as an over embellished brag, why you'd want to though is beyond me. Maybe that's what the crowd funding he's seeking is supplementing.

This seems insane. He must be literally buying apps all day. It would be like a full time job unless he buys every $99 iap he sees. Still he would never have time to play even a tiny fraction of them unless he lives completely without sleep. I have 5000 games and I think I'm insane. He must own like 100 128GB iPads. My 64Gb has only games on it and it's still really hard to manage space with all of my games.

Well, apps are not always games, so maybe he also buys other, more expensive apps. I did google his divoce legal papers. He claimed that he had monthly expenses of $875,000......... Including $26,000 for child care, and $110K a month for vacations. Since these were legal papers, I would hope he could verify his claims, but on the surface, his claims seemed implausible at best.

Maybe he has separate iPads for each genre.

The bulk of the money is being spend on high-end IAP's the ones which go beyond $99

sounds like Bull Crap, otherwise he just an idiot spending cash on IAPs for gold and nuggets or counts movies and music downloads as apps
