    Default Will apps ever cost money?

    Do you guys think when apple releases third party app support that they will charge for all their apps, including themes and add-ons or will there still be a community like this one providing awesome apps completely free (minus donations of course)?

    Hopefully both!

    Free apps will be around as long as Apple doesnt change the framework etc drastically to prevent homebrew app development.

    I wouldn't mind paying for an app if it was groundbreaking! and it was a good development. I refuse to pay for flakey apps and poor development progression.


    Cheers,

    Mark

    I don't disagree with your sentiment, however it's called business, Apple are not a registered charity. You could argue that if they had been less greedy over the last few years they never would have had the resources to produce the iPhone and then where would we be. This forum wouldn't even exist.

    Greed is not the problem. Of course they should be able to earn money on their products. The problem is when they tell people what do to and not to do.
    People can pay pretty much if they get freedom with the product. It is when it is expensive and they cant use it without restrictions they get angry and try to find other ways.
