Verizon just updated their V CAST app with some interesting new features, and some 'questionable' pricing perspectives. First, let's share some of the new features:
- The App now brings MP3s, ringtones, and ringback tones
- The MP3s will come without DRM and are in high-quality
- A wish list for storing songs for later purchase
- The ability to send a song recommendation to friends, which will open the song's purchase page in the app.
The pricing model for the MP3s, ringtones and ringback tones has us scratching our heads. The MP3s range from $.99 cents to $1.29, but the ringback tones are $1.99 and the ringtones are a whopping $2.99. This doesn't seem to make much sense, because you could simply purchase the MP3, then create your own custom ringtone or ringback tone for a lot cheaper. How many of you guys use V CAST, and if you do what do you think of this upgrade?
