Topic for the 1/20/13 #storyappchat: App Pricing

#storyappchat topic badgeWe’ve done a chat on this topic before, but felt as thought it was time to revisit the subject of app pricing. Most book apps are now priced between 99¢ and $4.99, according to Carisa Kluver of Digital Storytime (our resident storybook app expert). Are these fair prices for storybook apps? Does it make sense to run special discounts, and if so, when?

And what of the freemium model? Some developers have had success giving away introductory content, then charging for more once the value and high quality has been established in the mind of the user. Is this an approach those of us working on storybook apps should consider?

Let’s explore the world of pricing during this week’s #storyappchat, to be held this Sunday (January 20, 2013) at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific. We will be looking out for you then, so don’t miss it. Just start using the #storyappchat hashtag on Twitter to join in!
