^^ "FFS.
"Imagine paying $1000 a pop to someone who lacks basic English"

You mean like when you buy anything made outside of the English speaking countries, like, oh I don`t know, everything.

As far as I`m concerned, if those >250 reviews are people who`ve bought the app, he`s already made $250`000.

And no matter how much you insult his "basic English", he`s still going to have it. Get over it."

Baalthazaq, you used to be a good bloke. Since when did you turn into a dick? I`m assuming English is his first language... If not, maybe he could fork out part of his quarter million you mentioned to buy a spellchecker.

Are you seriously praising this guy for being an enterprising entrepreneur while simultaneously mocking me for having a go at him/anyone who buys this crap?

What happened to you Baalthazaq? Did you get married or something? You`ve turned into a real crusty bastard, man.

Maybe I should make an app that costs $1000.01? The I Am Richer app, maybe? *starts learning code*

To be fair, it`s not $1000, it`s $999.99. They`re saving a cent.

That watch sounds nice. Too bad my condo costs that much.

Reminds me of Maple Story where little kids would steal their parents`(`s?) credit cards and buy useless decorations for their game.

I like how the screen says "If it`s to expensive for you check out my other apps".

Delicious, delicious irony that people are paying $1000 bucks a pop to some douche who lacks basic english...

It`s funny how the video description is giving a lesson on stupidity when the person typing the description typed "but if you the the I Am Rich app, you`re an idiot." Emphasis on "the the" and "you`re an idiot."

It proves that you could afford it, Alice.

It`s own purpose defeats itself.

Or something.

Are we dividing by zero again?
