Happy Birthday Steve Wozniak

For yesterday!

Also August 10

The developer of I Am Rich, a pointless app that sold for a whopping $999.99, defends his notorious creation as “art.”

The existence of such an app was perhaps inevitable.

The I Am Rich app also prompted early questions about whether Apple should allow a “try before you buy” policy for the App Store. While Apple did not seriously consider such a policy, the concept fuels the plethora of free apps that offer in-app purchases today.

The sequel: I Am Rich LE

As for Heinrich, people reportedly bombarded him with messages — “many of them insulting,” he told The New York Times.

That harsh feedback didn’t stop him from a sequel called I Am Rich LE. The $8.99 app comes with a calculator and a spelling-corrected version of his “famous mantra.”

Released in 2009, it failed to achieve the same notoriety as the original, although it probably picked up one or two more users. Heinrich updated I Am Rich LE this year, adding iOS 12 compatibility and adding other improvements.
