The Average iPhone App Costs 19 Cents
If you think that the average cost of an iPhone app is $0.99 and the average cost for an iPad app is $1.99, you’re wrong. Mobile analytics company Flurry has been watching the average price of mobile apps for the past four years. Since they started watching the price of apps, one thing happening a lot was that developers were charging much less for apps.
The average app in the Google Play Store costs 6 cents, where the average app on the App Store for the iPhone costs 19 cents and 50 cents for the iPad. The reason apps are getting cheaper is because developers are making their apps free and adding more in-app purchases. That’s the main way developers make money with apps now.
