Although, you may think it's a little over the top to do a pricing analysis for an iPhone iPad app, these skills will come in handy as you build your brand and start to build multiple apps. A pricing analysis (or cost benefit analysis) is also an exercise you should do prior to developing your app. So many developers (or entrepreneurs) think of an idea for an app and set out to develop it or contract with someone to develop it without thinking through what it might cost them.
