Following my post on better than free .. and extrapolating those ideas to the mobile domain

So, I am looking for a benchmark of ..

  1. I have an iPhone and have bought a number of apps for it. Mostly those that link with my desktop apps such as Things (task management) £5.99 GBP and others that I find generally make my life easier such as iWiki for easy viewing of wiki pages £0.59 GBP and some advanced note taking apps.
    Why? Because these apps help me to get stuff done. It is interesting to note that omnifocus priced at £11.99 GBP is one of the top downloads according to a tech crunch article.
