【轉貼】 Windows 8: No 99 Cent Apps For You

Cheapest Windows 8 apps will be 50% more expensive than least costly Apple apps, Microsoft reveals.

Microsoft has released pricing details for apps that can be purchased from its online Windows Store once Windows 8 goes live--and bargain hunters might be disappointed.

Unlike Apple, which allows developers to charge as little as 99 cents for an app, Microsoft has set the minimum price for Windows 8 apps at $1.49.

"You, as the developer, are always in control of the pricing of your app," said Arik Cohen, lead program manager for Microsoft's commerce and licensing team, in a weekend blog post.

That's only partly true. Developers can choose a price tier for their app, but it's restricted to between $1.49 and $999.99. That range matches Apple's app pricing on the high end, but it's 50 cents more expensive on the low end compared to the minimum price for iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch apps.

That might not seem like a lot, but given the propensity of some mobile users to download hundreds of apps, it could add up. It also sets up a scenario where the Windows 8 version of an app could be 50% more expensive than its iOS-based counterpart. Cohen did not provide an explanation for Microsoft's pricing structure.
