Free. Or, You Know, $1.99.
You know there’s something wrong right away when the description includes both “free” and “for less than a cup of coffee.”
While searching for free iPhone apps1 the other day, I came across this one:
Note the description:
Ah, to describe an app in two words… Free Books is just that – Free Books!
Actually, no. I don’t know where you got your definition of “free” from, but the last time I checked, free meant that it doesn’t cost anything. Not even one cent, much less 199 of them. I’m guessing that none of those 23,469 “free” books is a dictionary…
- Almost all of the apps I have are free because I’m cheap frugal awesome like that [↩]
