Comment 10 by Richard Dawkins :

Perhaps it should be called, not an app but an 'enhanced e-book'. Or a bapp? It is big and expensive for an app but cheap for a book, and it is actually both.

Richard

Hmm that is maybe, but never the less it is an 'e' book that has none of the distribution costs of printed media, personally I think the price is far to steep for something where the only costs are the initial production and zero reproduction costs. Not only is is an e book I never get to own it like a real book, A real book gives me the freedom to loan it to people or give it to a charity shop to resell when I have finished with it. an iApp has no resale value and should be priced accordingly.
