I Am Rich

August 16th, 2008

AppleApple has a store that sells applications for the iPhone. Anyone can submit an app, and once it’s officially approved, the app is posted to the store and can be purchased. A German man named Armin Heinrich created an app that displays a red gem . He called it “I Am Rich” and put a $999.99 price tag on it. The description was very clear that this app essentially did nothing. Surprisingly, eight people purchased it, although two of them later asked for refunds. Apple has since pulled the app from the store.
