File this under “Really”. The not so popular “I am Rich” app was introduced August 5th 2008 for the iPhone which cost a mere $1000 to give you a rotating red gem on your screen to show off to all your friends just how rich you truly are. The app was a flop and was quickly yanked from the App Store, but now it seems as though a slightly different variation is being introduced to another platform. Windows Phone 7 owners can now go in and check the Marketplace for your version of the “I Am Rich” app at very reasonable (sarcasm) $499 which features a shiny Diamond on your screen which you can show off, YAY! Check out the screenshot that MobileCrunch was able to get a hold of and be sure to drop us a comment.
It didn’t last very long on iOS (Apple removed it hours after it went up), but it looks like someone else is trying to see how the idea fairs on another platform: Windows Phone 7.
But wait, there’s more! This one’s just $499! All the same uselessness, for half the price! Must be some sort of unoriginal-idea discount. (Actually, $499 is just the highest price allowed for Apps on the Windows Phone Market)
I’d download it purely for the sake of science, but I’m pretty sure that the higher-ups might have something to say about that expense reimbursement request.
