Apps or Food?

Smart post from Emanuel Sá:

Every time someone voices discontent about an application price they often provide a simple comparison: food. Do they take more value from a $2.99 application or from an equally priced latte?

When I buy an app, I buy it because I think it will improve the quality of the iPhone I bought. I may not use that app daily, but whenever I need it, I know where it is, and what it can do for me. But if it isn’t compatible on the OS i’m running, I need to find an alternative — and I’d love that alternative to just be a newer version of the same app, even if it means purchasing an upgraded version.
