6 of the Most Expensive iPhone and iPad Apps On iTunes

Be Prepared to Pay $1,000 for Some of These Apps

Most premium iPhone apps usually aren't much more than $1.99. Some of the really good ones may even be $2.99 or $5.99, which isn't that big of a deal either. If there's a fancy iPad version, then you may have to fork over $19.99, which is a little more than what most people probably want to spend on an app, but it's not unreasonable.

Now, what if I told you that there were apps selling on the iTunes App Store for hundreds of dollars? And what if I said there were a rare few that actually go for as much as a thousand dollars or more?

Welcome to the amazing world of high-end mobile software. You can do practically anything with mobile devices these days if you're willing to pay the price for it!

Just to demonstrate how real this is, here are 10 of the most expensive apps you can find in the App Store today.

VIP Black for $999.99

Three VIP Black app screens

First of all, be aware that this very expensive app hasn't been updated since May of 2014. Nonetheless, it's still available today (at least for now) so it's worth mentioning in this list. Dubbed "the world's first premium lifestyle management app," it's made for the type of people you'd expect it to be made for: super rich people with nothing better to do than spending their money.

The app actually requires users to confirm that they are indeed "High Net Worth Individuals" with assets and/or income of at least one million pounds. I'm guessing that if you have $1,000 to spend on a lifestyle app, then that should be sufficient enough proof that you're filthy rich.

CyberTuner for $999.99

Three CyberTuner screens

CyberTuner is a professional piano tuning app that will cost you more than what many average to good electronic keyboards cost. This app has been in development for three years, including one year of vigorous testing by music experts around the world.

Basically, if you're looking for the most sophisticated technology in piano tuning that's both easy to use and flexible enough to let you tune exactly the way you want with unbelievable accuracy, then this is the app you need. And as if the price didn't shock you enough already, users of the app will need to pay another $79.99 every year for CyberCare to get the upgrades.

app.Cash for $999.99

Three app.Cash screens

app.Cash claims to be a "stylish cashier system for all purpose," with no extra details, other than the inclusion of the printer machine models that it apparently supports. Besides that, there's just one very lonely and bland screenshot that accompanies the minimal description.

Is it worth one thousand bucks? Perhaps we'll never know. The app has been updated recently, so it appears that there are some users of it happily taking orders through their iPhones and printing out their receipts.

DDS GP Yes! for $499.99

Three DDS GP Yes! screens

DDS GP Yes! is a feature-packed iPad app made for dentists. Its main use is for helping patients gain a better visual understanding of certain dental conditions and treatments.

The app even comes with 37 different audio tracks geared toward dentists so that they can learn how to make the best use of the presentation-like app while in the company of a patient. It's really just an advanced tool that helps bridge the gap between the knowledgeable dentist and the uninformed patient so communication runs smoothly and the dentist has a higher chance of convincing the patient to make the best decisions for their oral health.

Agro for $299.99

Three Agro app screens

Thinking about pursuing an exciting career in agronomy, a.k.a. the science and technology of figuring out how to use plants in the best ways that benefit humanity? This app that's been designed specifically for agronomists may be exactly what you need.

Agro allows agronomists to manage all their client details, complete tailored inspection reports and eliminate or automate much of the manual work that agronomists traditionally deal with in their work. According to the app description, agronomists who make use of it can save up to 15 hours a week, as proven by the large corporations that have used it.

TouchChat AAC with WordPower for $299.99

Three TouchChat AAC screens

This app is a powerful communication tool designed for people who aren't always able to say what they want using their natural voice, including those with autism, down syndrome, ALS, and other conditions. The app comes bundled with a series of vocabularies built to make communication easy and intuitive.

Another huge bonus is that the app is fully customizable to the user, offering them the ability to rearrange and copy buttons however they want. It also integrates with social apps like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and iMessage to help users easily share text-based messages that they've generated.
