The ‘paid’ part of that headline is what jumped out at me. I was curious exactly how much it would cost to get an app certified by Happtique. Unsurprisingly, it is not easily found. It’s not located on their developer page, but on the app submission portal (under ‘Fee Schedule’ in the sidebar). The baseline initial fee is $3,000 for a two-year certification…other fees apply.
As a previous medical app developer, I don’t see much value, but apparently 10 developers have found some.
