Is Apple about to launch a premium app store?

The internet is alive with rumours that Apple will soon release an updated version of the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch devices that will sell “premium” applications.


So far the App Store has been used to sell applications at around the $2 to $10 level, but a premium store would sell programs that cost upwards of $20.


But some developers have critcised the store, saying apps take too long to be approved by Apple, while some decisions to exclude certain apps appear to be random.


But new rumours from Wired suggest the new premium section will not only include high-priced apps, but also business software.
