I love the Paper app, but I find that it’s really not useful for much without making a few in-app purchases, unfortunately

Very true, David. I started using Paper for sketchnoting, and I ended up making the in-app purchase to get at what I needed. But hey, the developers have to find a way to make for their work, for this is the type of society we live in.

Vivek, I don’t think so. I think we’re going to see the price of apps start to rise some, especially given the amount of work required to develop an app and maintain it.

You think they should all be $.99?
