These Are the Most Expensive iPhone Apps

1 minute read

Think a $10,000 Apple Watch is expensive? Try buying a $999.99 iPhone app.

That’s the price limit that Apple sets on apps available on the App Store, and quite a few apps are actually marked up that high, as Business Insider reports. (App Store doesn’t allow you to sort apps by price.)

Here’s a look at some of the most expensive iPhone apps on the market:

  • VIP Black, the self-described “millionaire’s app” (proof of assets required upon download), giving users luxury benefits from the company’s partners
  • Alpha Trader, a trading suite for investment professionals
  • QSFFStats, a curiously expensive app that allows you to input flag football stats
  • MobiGage NDI, an app that automates measurement and inspections of manufactured parts and assemblies
  • While those apps don’t have any reviews — meaning it’s likely no one bought them — there is one $999.99 app that people are actually buying. That’s Cyber Tuner, a “pro piano technician’s gold standard tuning software tool,” which has 61 ratings and a five-star average.
