EP Visual Design, a Pennsylvania-based software development firm, is now offering a $900 app in the App Store for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
Targeted toward corporate and government customers, SiteCloner Publisher enables its customers to build apps that can publish content to end users through HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP connections. The app also features local storage for offline viewing, user permissions, customizable user interfaces, compare and download, error checking, and download restarts.
Sounds great, but is it really worth $900? Pete Meyers of EP Visual seems to think so: “'The app contains two years of in-house development work, so we didn’t want to make it too cheap. If we sell a few of them, hopefully we can lower the price.' Meyers explained that hospitals, for example, could make use of SiteClone because they’re notorious for poor internet connections."
