While there are probably few legitimate apps that will take advantage of this raised pricing structure, there are certain companies that will likely be happy with the option, such as those that offer software aimed at professionals. Unfortunately, there will probably be a few less legitimate app makers looking to cash in from the increase as well.
While on the subject of pricing, we thought we’d ask: What’s the most you’ve ever paid for an app on Google Play? And what was the app? Additionally, what do you think of the new limit raise, and can you think of any (legit) situations where Google would be wise to consider an even higher limit – such as Apple with its $1000 max price.
