How much are the apps in the app store going to cost? Is it going to be like buying songs on iTunes (they are all a set price, like $1.99), or are they going to be more expensive and vary by app?

I'm sure it's going to vary a lot by app. Some might be $1.99 (or cheaper) but I'm sure a lot are going to be more expensive. I have no idea on the prices we should expect but for something with a lot more programming into it (TomTom App, eventual SlingPlayer App or a in-depth game) I would expect to pay more.

Just like apps on other platforms they will vary in pice, from free to ?. I have already heard that the SplashData (Splash ID, Splash Money, Splash Shopper) programs wil be about $30 each, and if they bundle them like they do on Palm and Wndows Mobile the "Splash Wallet Bundle" would be about $45. These are three programs I don't mind paying for at all since they are well worth the money.

I think I also saw a few games thatwere going to be $9.99, (Super Monkey Ball)

Other programs that I know are coming (Pocket Informant) have not released proicing yet. I also read of some programs costing just $1.99 and several apps that were going to be free.

Level of Apple Approval?

Do all apps in the AppStore undergo and vigorous testing by Apple? Do they "bless" each app? Do they "warranty" the apps to work properly without freezing-up, or your money back (for paid apps)?

All I know is, currently as a developer, Apple has not approved me and several other (way bigger) iPhone developers to BE a developer and place apps at their iTune store. I filled out their application on day one and have developed several apps using their new SDK. I had planed to present these apps for free at iTunes. I think it is bad of Apple to only allow bigger companies this privilege. So, my guess, is that installer will live on to allow an even bigger range of apps.

Well I originally heard this from Saverino so this is on his rep. . .
What?! I never said anything about $1000!
Do you have proof of me saying this?

Edit: I remember saying Ive seen things from free to $9.99

Maybe its possible I forgot the decimal or something...but I know 100% I never said/meant to say 1000 dollars.
