BlackBerry App World Still Leads in Most Expensive Apps

app platform pricing

GigaOM and Mobclix have put together a nice chart showing the average cost of a paid application on each smartphone app store. We have talked a few times about how App World has the highest priced apps relative to the other smartphones, and to date, it still leads by over a $1 compared to the next highest Windows Mobile. RIM should be much more active in helping developers drive these prices down. At the very least, App World needs a better promotional system similar to the BlackBerry Cool Store, so they can offer a Deal of the Day, BOGO campaigns and MobileHeist sales.

    Not to mention App World has no (human) support at all, their apps don’t have discounts when the same apps do in other online stores, you can’t delete apps from your associated “MyWorld”, developers are going through the throes of the damned trying to get products updated while their customers are suffering from not being able to upgrade to the latest edition. Yes, RIM, you’ve given us a really nice product here. I just ripped it off my BB this morning and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
