    You know how tap tap revenge is still free with limited songs? then they release $5 apps as track packs?

    X Plane should provide a free game as well. I feel bad for those that paid $9.99 for the original and it would not be updated. Instead, new versions are popping up. :(

    If they would just use the maps from the new ones into the original more expensive one, I'd be happy.

    Don't you mean the locations? What good would the map alone be? And I agree with u.

    i agree

    i would also like to see changing weather (for example have a strom come accross while your flying)

    the airliner version looks great but i think i'll wait to see what happens b4 i buy another episode. who knows we might see Xplane Jet or Xplane Space

    i think he needs to drop the price of the original

    and provide an even better package deal for all of them.

    because currently i wouldn;t consider buying any of them. and im a big fan of flight sims.

    the trust factor just isn't there. i could buy x-plane for $10 and find x-plane 2 will be released in two months for $5 at this rate.

    he will not release a free version.....trust me. over the emails we have exchanged he has said a lot of times "we are getting more than $0 worth". can someone explain to him that although his computer version is $60 and we will not get 100% of that for $10, in app store $10 is a lot?!

    We're talking about miniscule amounts of money here, this sort of stuff is in the ballpark of having a meal at [random fast food chain] or a couple of beers, if that! If the developer puts out "X-Plane Fantabulous" in a few months and wants another five bucks for it then it's up to the market to evaluate the new features and purchase it if they choose. It is, however, ridiculous to expect that the original measly purchase can support the developer working in perpetuity on cranking out free stuff.
