Audio Note Taker is the most insanely overpriced app for BlackBerry 10

I rolled across this one in the forums earlier and wasn't sure what to think. We've seen plenty of overpriced apps floating though BlackBerry World over the years, but this one has to be a mistake. Honestly - there's no way a developer could knowingly price a voice recorder app at $599, right?

Audio Note Taker looks to be a simple note taking app for both voice and text, touting the ability to take voice notes and record audio at the same time. It does look like a pretty cool app with some good functions like sharing and Remember integration, but I'm not ready to shell out $600 to find out. It is built for BB10 however so I'd assume that it works pretty well.

I'm going with the theory that it's a mishap and should be around $0.99 like all the developers other apps. We'll check back and see if the price drops in the next few days to be sure. 

I don't think even Kevin will jump on this one after his last mistake. After all, for that kind of money I'd expect Lisa to show up in my bedroom and read back everything I recorded.

Kevin again ha

I feel like they meant to be at $5.99 and misplaced or forgot the decimal point

Hmm... that would be the best explanation. I hope that's the case. $5.99 is a dea! $599.99? Not so much..

For those who didn't go to the forum thread, the dev responded saying the intended price is $0.99, but he set it to $599 intentionally to keep people from buying it until a new version with a bug fix is approved (there is no way to pull the app from sale while waiting for the new build).

GjDub

I did. #madeofmoney lol ;)

That's strange, i am able to pull my apps at will

Fnord

Possible he didn't want to pull the app while the new version was in the approval queue?

Where is Kevin to buy this? Remember the extremely expensive clock Kevin bought for his 9900?

AnimalPak200

axllebeer

Genghis2k3

But wait! There's good news!!!

Woo hoo!

gebco

I think it is worth it. It is very powerful to have this ability and it can vastly transform your existence.

Where is Kevin to buy this app?

Anyone remember when the iPhone first came out and there was an app that was just a pic of a red ruby and it cost $1000, just to show you had money to burn.

If you don't think you can sell your app to 600 people @ $1, you hope for one sucker @ $600.

ryanlrobinson

My guess is that they were counting on Kevin or someone like him to buy it on a dare. Make more in one sale than they probably would by selling it at $0.99 a piece.

Supa_Fly1

I'm wondering if this was a typo on the price, instead to be $5.99 and yet the developer is actually banking on this? lol wouldn't that be hilarious. I could see a few mindless executives gunning for this and couldn't be bothered for bargain shopping.

DetlevCM

The suggestion of a typo at the end of the article is reasonable - bit bot with 0.99.
5.99 would make perfect sense - missing the decimals, hitting 9 too often.

I guess time will tell ;).

Just meant for people who are careless enough to press the purchase button

You can do it very easy as the Review button is so close to the Buy button. I've done it a few times myself.

There is another app listed for $599 on BlackBerry World. Search for vpn and you will see it.

Kevin, this one is for you! Go for it!

SCrid2000

If I price an app at $599 will CrackBerry feature it? That's gotta be worth a sale or two...

dmurillo3

I wouldn't pay $5.99 for it either!!! In either case it's a mistake to make this app if u need to charge $5.99 for it.

The app will magically transform your Z10 into an A10

I'm going to buy this just to see if its worth the money! Lol if not. The developer best be ready for a lawsuit

DetlevCM

While you can sue for anything in the US, I am not exactly sure what basis you would have here to stand a chance of winning.

djraz_official

Thank goodness I'm in Canada. Simply sue for overpriced software that doesn't provide an ounce of value in comparison to others or native. :). Ill find the reason.

They're hoping to retire on Kevin's one-time purchase :)

Someone needs to develop an app to lower the price of over-priced BlackBerry apps.

An interesting note, the "LIMITED EDITION CESAR HQ desktop clock CESAR" is now $19.99. Not the best ROI in the world, but hopefully Kevin got his money's worth out of it lol.

Looks like blackberry just removed it.

Omg, I paid for that thinking it was $ 5.99. Is there. Any chance I could get a refund ?

Berrysmoothy

I hope your joking buddy. If not, I feel for ya. No refunds for software!

Berrysmoothy

maybe it's the dev's way of using that ol "perceived value" marketing strategy...but going a little too far with it
XD

My wife thinks you're sexist, Adam.

Knowing that Kevin will eventually buy this app just for shits and giggles, I can see why the dev priced it at $599. 8-)

Looks like it's already down :)
