Some time back we told you about the most expensive mobile phones, now it’s the turn of some of the costliest mobile apps available on Android platforms.
This app is for those who are proud owners of private airplanes. Safecell has been created by Australia based ASiQ Limited.
It uses the airplane’s Bluetooth connection, which in turn is connected to a satellite. The phones on board the airplane, connected together via SafeCell, work as if they are in an area that has mobile network coverage. Users do not have to pay roaming charges either.
The app costs a whopping $ 12,500 (about Rs 5,60,000), which anyway is a meager sum for those who own a private airplane.
Safecell will be released soon. Initially, it will be available for Nokia and other Symbian phones. BlackBerry and Android versions of the app are to follow soon. iPhone users, however, will have to wait a little longer.
Although the Medicine Central app from Unbound Medicine is costly, it addresses the problem of cost by bundling several apps in one, thus reducing overall costs for users.
It includes MEDLINE Journals, Pocket Guide to Diagnostic Tests, A to Z Drug Facts, Drug Interaction Facts, and 5-Minute Clinical Consult. Medicine Central costs $160 (about Rs 7,200).
This app covers only emergency medicine. It is a collection of information about diseases, diagnostic tests and drugs.
Users get one year of web access and free updates. Emergency Central app costs $150 (about Rs 6,700).
This app has been created by NAVIGON and it uses the GPS of the handset to guide the user to his destination. The app provides maps, text to speech and traffic information so that users may navigate through traffic with minimum fuss.
Mobile Navigator costs $127 (about Rs 5,700).
