Abu Moo Collection
The Abu Moo Collection is said to be the most expensive app available on Google Play; it is a collection of six individual apps that was developed by Abu Moo in Hollywood. The apps are named after gems – Amethyst, Aquamarine, Black Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald – which, curiously, have been designed with the sole purpose of adding a gem widget on to the Android device’s background. It is an exercise in arrogance, as its creator invites users to purchase the suite to simply brag about it to others. Price: $3,300 ($550 each)
The CyberTuner from Reyburn Piano Service Inc. has been specifically designed for professional piano players who possess basic piano tuning skills and personal tuning equipment. This app’s function is to primarily add to the ease of use and provide clarity of functions. Professional pianists can rely on it to ensure that the piano is pitch-perfect.
Price: $1,000 (Plus an annual CyberCare subscription of $109 for updates)
