When it's available for free and you buy it you get it for free. It's impossible to charge you afterwards because when you decide to download it because it's free. Many apps become free over time, and that's one of the ways how I save a lot of money. So in short, free = free (watch out for in-app purchases though, they are never free!) To give you a ...

Yes, those apps you mentioned are free for new devices. ie, activated on or after September 1, 2013. All five apps will be free if you meet the following criteria: You have to activate an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on or after September 1, and The device has to be compatible with iOS 7, and you can check our complete list of devices that can ...

You bought the apps with your old Apple ID. Apps are permanently tied to the ID with which they were bought. I'm fairly certain if you deleted them, and re-downloaded them with your new ID, the problem would be solved. You would, however, have to pay for them again if they were not free. Relevant questions: Attempting to update app asks for a different ...

Does Apple think you have an unpaid balance? That cause cause the "payment verification" requests. To see if that's the case, check your purchase history. If you do have an outstanding balance, once you pay it you should be able to select "none" as a payment option. See: Why can’t I select None when I edit my payment information? ...

Yes, if the app is deleted after being downloaded, it still counts as a download. Deleting the app does not affect the ranking of the app. If you download the app over and over again using the same Apple ID, it will still count as one download. You cannot improve your rating by downloading the same app over and over again unless you use different Apple IDs. ...

Only new downloads will count, redownloading or downloading an update does not. And the top is based on number of downloads per time-unit. Updating your app, on the other hand will (probably) keep users satisfied with new features and layout. If they spread the word, or advertise in any way about your application you will get more downloads. But that's not ...

Try searching your email for the string: In-App Purchase Here's an example email receipt I received from the iTunes App Store which included an in-app purchase (in this case, an X-Men comic from the comiXology app):

In general, no. On a stock iOS device, the OS security sandbox prevents any app from recording, or otherwise accessing in any way, the audio generated by any other app, unless that other app explicitly exports its audio (via AudioBus or Inter-App Audio). Some (but not all) synthesizer and drum machines (etc.) apps document support for such.

As traisjames says, you could indeed make a wrapper that loads your webpage. Just porting a website to an app isn't allowed according to Apple's App Store review guidelines (here). It says so in this line: 2.12 Apps that are not very useful, unique, are simply web sites bundled as Apps, or do not provide any lasting entertainment value may be ...

Pixate's Freestyle isn't a drop in wrapper to turn a webpage into an app, but it might be a good starting place to create your app. It lets you use CSS to define the style of your app. That's just the look though, you will still need to figure out what you want to do for the app logic. You will also need to get a iOS Developer account ($99/year) in order ...
