$999.99 iPhone App "I Am Rich" Probably Only Applies to Developer

Illustration for article titled $999.99 iPhone App I Am Rich Probably Only Applies to Developer

You must've seen at least one book titled something like "This book will teach you how to earn $1 million." Now, picture an iPhone application that has just two functions: a red jewel icon that "always reminds you (and others when you show it to them) that you were able to afford this," and, after pressing the "(i)", a secret mantra that "may help to you stay rich, healthy and successful." It costs $999.99. See where I'm going with this? I've got a better mantra that'll help you stay rich and healthy (by avoiding accidental spending-induced heart-attacks.) "Make sure you keep iTunes asking for your permission to buy apps before purchasing, or clicking on this app link may make you very, very sad indeed." Update: Apple have pulled the app from the App store. You can turn on one-click purchasing again. [Product page]

This app isn't available any more at the iTunes store. So now it's even more valuable.
