Isn't the $.99 pricing of good apps start the increased sales of the iPhone/ iPod touch App store? Same rule should apply here, don't you think?
What "rule" are you talking about? If you are talking about the "rule" that developers spend months
creating an app or game--and then have to reduce the price to less than what a burger costs because whiny children don't want to pay a fair price--then no, I certainly don't think that "rule" should apply.
I want to see quality games like Splinter Cell on the iPad and I am willing to pay a fair price. I am hoping that the iPad will attract developers who will create console-quality games for us non-crybabies. The Touch can continue to be a haven for 99-cent fart apps and Minigores for the kiddies, but the iPad should be so much more than that.
