I’m fascinated by the iPhone app pricing experiments that I noticed over the past month or two. Here’s the latest one…
This is first app I’ve seen that asks you to pay (99 cents) for a 14-day trialware. Even more fascinating is that MapQuest does not reveal the cost for 30 day, 90 day, and 1 year subscriptions anywhere on its iTunes product page.
MapQuest Navigator 1.0 (iTunes App Store)
You can, however, find this information in the blog announcement that I linked above:
$3.99 for 30 days
$9.99 for 90 days
$29.99 for one year
This actually compares reasonably well to, for example, Navigon’s well-liked (4.5 stars out of 5) MobileNavigator for iPhone which is priced at $89.99. And, I’ll guess that Navigon will charge for a major update sometime in the next couple of years.
