With the release of the iPad, which is basically a larger version of the iPod Touch, it seemed like developers would have a good excuse to jack up prices for applications. Thus far, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Of course, the product is only a month old, too, so you never know. So what are some of the trends in iPad applications? Enterprise Mobile Today has a look.
With the bigger screen of Apple’s iPad compared to the iPhone came the concern that the price of apps would increase apace. With more screen real estate and a faster processor, it stood to reason that premium apps would appear and developers would charge more.
But one month out from Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) launch of the new device, prices so far are holding fairly steady. Some verticals are showing a price premium, while the majority are only on average a dollar more than the typical iPhone app.
