Would You Pay $200 for an App? These Developers Think So

The Android Market can proudly claim a collection of over 500,000 apps in its mightly data banks. While some have been removed, not every app can boast the quality most loyal Android users have come to expect. Next to Locus Pro and Mufin player Pro, there are dozens of apps, who price and point are hard to justify. To give you an idea of the apps your really shouldn't download, we've put together this list of the top 5 useless and overpriced apps on the Android Market. While they may be good for a laugh, whatever you do, don't download these apps! You can't say we didn't warn you.

1. Spite


Have you ever hated someone so much that you just wanted to light $200 on fire and wave it in their face? Neither have I. But apparently Spite's developer thought there was a market for people willing to burn cash to let their enemies know they don't like them very much. So how does it work? After paying a whopping $200 for this horridly designed app, you're given the option of sending them a text message letting them know that the whole price of the app was to let them know that you think they suck. Why sending one text for $200 is more effective then $200 worth of apps (what would that be around 600?) remains to be seen.

2. Black Diamond


If you have $200 to drop on an app and Site doesn't strike you fancy, maybe Black Diamond is your destination in the Android Market. What does it do? Like Situation t-shirt or Spray On tan, it's tells people you have extra cash and no taste and you're not afraid to show it off. After plopping down your parents hard earned cash this little gem of an app displays a single diamond on the users home screen. Perfect for all the Android users out there who desperately want everyone to know that they, in fact, are idiots. (If $200 is too much for you check out the discount emerald, sapphire or ruby apps)


3. I am Rich


This is not only a blatant rip off of Black Diamond but also stole its name from an iPhone app that made news a couple of years ago. While ostensibly I Am rich's only function is to let people know you're a git with money, its discount $100 price and tacky wallpaper are perfect for people with even less taste then Black Diamond customers. If you have this app your phone, it not only entitles you to scorn and mocking from all you meet but also one free kick in the teeth. Seriously. It's a law. Look it up.


4.Vuvuzela World Cup Horn Plus:


If you're a soccer fan, you know this sound that plagued the last World Cup. If you missed it imagne the sound of a thousand angry bees and you get the general idea. If in the months since the last WC, you've found yourself missing the defining drone that brought half the world to a stand still and have $140 to spend on a cheap mp3, then Vuvuzela World Cup Horn Plus is the app for you. If you've ever felt like dying a painful death try playing this suck in the major European city. Oddly enough, this is the only app on the list downloaded more then 50 times. I doubt the poor customers of World Cup Horn were ever heard from again.

5. Med School Loan Viewing

If you ever wanted to get a first hand look at the debt a single American med. student can wrack up, then check out Med School Load Viewing for the low price of $150. It gives you a detailed look into one mans struggle with student loans and with the app price, helps him get out of debt one regretted download at a time. Nobel goal. Stupid App.

So there you go. Now you know the five most stupidly expensive apps in the Android Market. If you're actually dumb enough to pick up one of these wastes of hard drive space, find the person nearest to you and give them your phone. I'm sure they'll make better use of it then you.
