99¢ at dim sum

At dim sum today, which we decided is something like tapas in Chinese cuisine, we bought a new favorite iPhone app, the Ocarina (99¢). Somehow all the excitement of dining (thanks, J&R) and new-app buying did not distract me from the magic golden—and I’m sure lucky—pig in the display by the cash register.

    I have ocarina! Haven’t played with it much, I’ll admit.

    Sort of an iPhone flute-ette….

  3. Pooh says:

    I have a question about the app prices. Is the 99 cents a one time charge, or a recurring charge (monthly, yearly)?

  4. Sammy says:

    As far as I know they’re one-time charges. Some apps are free, others cost varying amounts. Still others have a free version & also a pay version with more gazinta.

  5. kayak woman says:

    One-time charge. I’m guessing that a monthly charge would have to be verly clearly specified.

    er, very, not verly… :-]
