Personally i can't believe the Morcombe app is so cheap especially with the
calls. Who else spent hundreds of dollars collecting the BOCA CD set?!
Also there is so much more development work/cost that goes into an app compared
to the printed book. You can't honestly compare a novel with this app? There is
zero added functionality to a novel -essentially its simply a "scan" of the
Go and buy an ebook from CSIRO publishing for another example - ones i have
looked at were the same cost as the printed book without any added
functionality and no printing cost.
