Apps are awesome and everybody knows that.
What’s not to love about living in a high-tech world where little boxes in our smartphones can do anything for us? From calling us a taxi to delivering our groceries with the click of a button, apps make life easier.
What’s even better is that most of these applications are totally free, while some of them have a minimal charge.
However, there are a few apps that are not cheap at all. Actually, they’re really expensive. And the worst part is that some of them are totally useless too.
Here are 25 of the most ludicrously expensive apps you can download today … but we wouldn’t advise you to buy any of them if you don’t really need them for business purposes.
Last Updated on
Crestron Mobile Pro
This app helps users to control their home’s entertainment and environmental systems from their iPhone or iPad.
It uses 4G or Wi-Fi communication to keep the user connected at home, in the office, and on the go.
If you’re unable (or too lazy) to do any of these things manually, then you have the option to pay $100 and Crestron Mobile Pro will take care of everything.
Sexy Finger Print Test HD
There’s an app that can tell you how sexy you are during the day, or what the perfect time is for you to flirt.
The assessment is apparently based on the pressure and temperature of your finger (neither of which the iPhone can actually measure).
Still, if you’re willing to pay a hundred bucks to download it, you may improve your flirting skills.
Zollinger's Atlas of Surgery
For more than fifty years, Zollinger’s Atlas of Surgical Operations has been the ultimate guide for those performing common surgeries, demonstrating safe and well-known techniques.
Its tenth edition expands the content to include 19 new operations and it’s available (App Store) to download for only $120.
The app is easy to navigate, allowing you to browse the contents or search for topics.
Super Color Runner
Super Color Runner is a unique take on the popular game style that involves line running.
Rather than running down a single endless path, you have to fill up four paths with energy in this game. Along the way, you collect pellets and run through batteries to stay alive.
The only bad thing about this game is that it costs $200 to download, which is about $200 more expensive than many free line-running games out there.
Are you sick of paying ridiculous fees for in-flight Internet? Worry not.
The creators of BizjetMobile claim that their product is the only app in the world to offer an in-flight connectivity system that utilizes Bluetooth Smart technology and Iridium to simultaneously connect pilots and passengers with the outside world.
All you have to do is pay $250 and you’re ready to fly in style.
Classic TC with WordPower
This truly awesome app is a full-featured communication solution for people who have difficulty using their natural voice.
It’s designed for individuals with autism, Down syndrome, ALS, apraxia, or those who have suffered from a stroke or another condition that affects one’s ability to use natural speech.
Not as pricey as many of the others on this list, this app costs $299.99.
SafeSession Voice Encryption
SafeSession provides mobile secure VoIP calls.
Your phone conversation is protected from being hacked with the aid of voice encryption algorithms, but only if the person on the other end has also installed the SafeSession secure software on their device.
The price of this app is $300, but it will help your conversations feel safer than ever before.
Boffo Fun Time Game Pax 2
For just $299.99, you can download Boffo Fun Time Game Pax 2 and get access to four different games including the bizarrely cool Clown Bop.
In case the name intrigues you as much as it intrigued us during research, you might be amused to learn this game offers you the unique chance of punching the heck out of a clown-like punching bag.
Virtually, of course.
Water Globe is a set of interactive screen toys. The globe runs a fluid dynamics simulation, using gravity and shaking to produce the effect of snow.
You can shake and tilt the screen to make the flakes go flying … your very own winter wonderland. You also have the option to change the globe background, gravity, snowflake size, and amount of snow.
The only problem is that you will have to spend about $300 to do all these fancy, snowy things.
Barcelona vs Madrid
The match between fierce rivals Real Madrid and FC Barcelona is considered one of the biggest club sporting events in the world.

This awesome app assists veterinarians with overviews of conditions affecting animals.
If you’re an animal lover with an interest in becoming a vet, this might be a necessary app for your future plans.

Certain tools of the app also aid in managing metal inventory with helpful catalogs and more.
DDS GP Yes!
DDS GP Yes! is by far the #1 app for dentists.
It helps dental professionals make your teeth healthier and whiter while helping patients better understand how dental treatment works.
It costs about $500 but dental treatment plans will look less frightening than ever before with this app.
Gun Bros Apathy Bear
Even though GunBros is supposed to be a free gaming app for iPhone and iPad users, there is an in-app purchase that’s not free at all.
Game developer Glu Games has designed a special character called Apathy Bear, which can be acquired if you’re willing to spend $600.
The character can simultaneously fire 11 bullets. Each projectile is designed to deal out 4,000 damage points, a considerable help for a serious gamer who wants to be a step ahead of his rivals.
According to its creators, Verituner is the only electronic tuning technology that measures the inharmonicity of every note during tuning, accumulating a detailed picture of the entire scaling of the piano.

BarMax CA was designed by Harvard Law School alumni and is an all-inclusive bar exam review course.
The full course is available on the iPad and iPhone, allowing users to study from almost anywhere.
The only negative thing about BarMax CA is that it’s another thousand-dollar app on this list.
I Am Rich
I Am Rich is an iOS application developed by Armin Heinrich, which was available for a short time via Apple’s App Store.
When launched, the screen only contained a glowing red gem and an icon that, when pressed, displayed the following mantra in large text: I am rich, I deserv [sic] it, I am good, healthy & successful.
Its only purpose was clearly to showcase one’s vanity. Not surprisingly, Apple removed this app from the App Store the day after its release.
Ideal for agronomists, the Agro app allows professionals to visit a client, complete an inspection report, and hold the sale of products. They can move on to the next client, knowing that all paperwork is done and sent by the time they drive out the gate.
Its price is a little too “spicy,” but $999.99 might not be too bad if the app is used strictly for professional reasons.
