That's ridiculous. Can Apple really have allowed that to be the first app priced over $9.99?

Luminair goes for 79.99 on the appstore...

You guys are being over critical.

Its not a rip off because it doesn't claim to be anything more than what it is. It's the normal free zynga poker. You are just buying chips so you can start the game with more chips and jump into high stakes games

If that's the case then I'm kind of glad that none of the recent big game releases have come in higher than $10, because I'm sure they could have gotten away with it quite easily and still made decent sales. Hopefully this is a sign then that decent Touch gaming will remain at $10 or less, as opposed to this crap.
