I don't think you understand the problem. We all see the value being offered, but can't afford it.
This is the "chicken or the egg" problem. We need get the tools to make the app.... so that we can get the funds to get the tools. It's impossible.
If it was something like $19/month, on a month-month basis (not a yearly contract or one payment for a whole year) it would be worth it. I could create an app with great tools and have time for funds to come in. Then I could get on a better plan if I needed it.
You have to also understand that where I live (Ohio) the cost of living is low, so the amount you want may seem low to you, but here that is a lot of money. Not just a lot... TOO much money. That is why I, and I bet many others, have chosen to not sign up, even though we really like what we see.
