If there are 1MM people willing to pay $2.99 for an app with mobile-optimized non-premium boards, then I'd bet the farm it'll happen.

Really? It takes $3 million to develop an app to read text that already exists?

One wonders how Friendly, MyPad, iFace and the others got made so quickly when Facebook took its time. Even more astonishing is that those guys in garages who apparently came up with $3 million for development?

I gotta get in this game. With 425,000 apps in the App Store, it appears Apple has generated 1 Trillion, 275 million dollars (425,000 x $3M) in development costs alone. Wow. And they say the recession's not over.
