    Well, that's a big price drop...I wonder if it was worth $999.99, although even if it was, people would be whining for a price drop :)

    There is no way anyone would ever pay 1000 for this. So is pricing it at 1000 and reducing it to 0 just a hilarious marketing ploy?

    I love it.

    Wouldn't it be funny if the developer said, "What? Why are you so angry? It's only a 1000 dollar sale!"

    A 1000 dollars saved is 1000 dollars earned.

    It's this distorted sense of perspective that makes this forum of game addicts and immaturity so great :)

    yah i saw this today and was kinda confused for a sec. But i believe its a crazy marketing ploy. I believe the Dev knows that app sniper and app sale websites are very popular, pulling this stunt would certainly make sure the app gets noticed among all the other price drop to free garbage apps that happen daily.

    I believe it worked, I mean if it was not for the 999.99 > free would any of us be talking about it? i asm sure it brought in a great deal of downloads (and i asume this is a ad supported app thus it probably worked great) brilliant really

    the last time i posted about some similar ploy: http://www.onemoretap.com/2009/02/07/multi-lingua-99999/, there were feedback from the crowd saying that the developer might be trying to limit distribution and discourage people from purchasing their app.

    Not sure about the intention for this one though... you only get bad exposure when people complaint about the price, eh? ;)
