I think it sucks you must pay for autoguide.com

I have apple products. I hate the fact that when I'm on my iPad or iPhone, I have to pay to view this forum.
I'm not willing to pay for autoguide.com. I thought maybe going through safari would be like a regular web browser but its still asking for money to get app.

Do people actually pay for this app? Or is it just Apple that want money.

There should be a free version too
I paid the 3 bucks for the paid version, just because its a one time thing and 3 bucks is nothing
Convenience comes at a price
Either shell out the couple bucks or stick with a desktop!
Funding for stuff has to come from somewhere

And Apple has nothing to do with the cost of the App that Autoguide puts out.

That's mainly due to Apple's strict regulation of apps entering their marketplace. It's such a process to get an app submit, approved, and distributed on Apple's marketplace that there are even companies you can pay to do all the dirty work for you.

Android's marketplace is much easier to submit and therefore most companies don't have to put man hours into making their apps 100% acceptable and regulated.

Therefore, many Apple apps are priced because the developers like making some of their money back from the hours invested.
