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:

Free books?  For only $1.99?  What a bargain!

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…

  1. Almost all of the apps I have are free because I’m cheap frugal awesome like that []
