    BarMax, The $1,000 App (That's Actually Worth It), Hits The iPad

    It was just about a year ago that we first wrote about BarMax, an iPhone application meant to help law student pass the Bar exam. But if you’ve heard of the app, it’s more likely because of its price: $999.99. And now you’ll be able to part with the $1,000 at the click of a button for the iPad too. BarMax, which, believe it or not, actually seems to be a good deal at $1,000… Read More

    BarMax's Efficient Path To $200K In Sales: A $999.99 iPhone App; iPad Version Coming

    Remember BarMax? You’ll be forgiven if you don’t — chances are, it isn’t for you. That’s not to say it’s not good — it apparently is very good — but it’s only meant for would-be lawyers attempting to pass the Bar exam in California or New York. Or maybe you know it better as the $1,000 iPhone app. Yes, it’s that one. What’s… Read More

    BarMax, The $1,000 iPhone App, Is Profitable And Expanding With New York Version

    When we first wrote about BarMax in January, there was a lot of interest in the iPhone app for one obvious reason: it cost $999.99. While it may not have been the first $1,000 app (the useless gimmick app, I Am Rich, can claim that title), it was the first to seemingly be worth the high price tag. Apparently, users have agreed. As the app meant to help law students pass the bar exam is… Read More

    The $1K iPhone App Took Just 3 Weeks To Scare The Crap Out Of BarBri

    Last month, we broke the news about BarMax, the most expensive app in the App Store. At $999.99 (the highest price Apple allows you to sell an app for), the app differentiated itself from the joke $999.99 app in the past because it actually seemed like a solid deal. That is, it’s a solid deal when you compare it to its closest competitor, BarBri, a series of classes that help lawyers… Read More

    BarMax: The $1,000 iPhone App That Might Actually Be Worth It

    In August 2008, Apple approved an application in the App Store called I Am Rich. The app did nothing beyond show a picture of a red gem. So why was it notable? Because it cost $999.99. Though Apple pulled it relatively quickly, there was some concern that we’d start to see a rush of bogus applications and/or huge prices in the App Store. Luckily, that didn’t happen and app prices… Read More
