@domleca Thanks. I prefer to buy direct because I figure it improves your margins on the sale. But the App store wants $A11 not $A13. Sorry.

via TweetDeck in reply to domleca

@sparrow About to buy from your store but you want $AUD13 for $US10 product. That’s a big rip-off. $1US = $AUD0.97 today. Please explain.
