The Super Rich’s Favorite Apps to Use
Thirteen years ago, there was an iOS application developed by a man named Armin Heinrich. It was called ‘I Am Rich.’ The application sold on the App Store for US$999.99 yet served no function whatsoever. Instead, it presented the user with a glowing red gem that, when pressed, displayed the following message, “I am rich I deserve it, I am good, healthy & successful. The next day, Apple Inc. removed the application from its App Store, which only made it even more exclusive as, at this point, only eight people globally had bought the app.
Exclusivity is undoubtedly one of the perks of a luxury lifestyle. Still, far more useful apps have been developed specifically for the rich, and I’ve curated a list of them. So, buckle up. You may just find your new go-to app to help you along your journey to becoming a happy millionaire.
Flyblade is a millionaires’ Uber of the sky. The app allows users to book chartered flights in seconds, accessing an unmatched level of precision and hospitality. Tap a button to get a flight — it’s that simple. Do you wish to fly helicopters, seaplanes, and jets between New York, Miami, and the Hamptons? Do you want to purchase a seat on an existing flight, crowdsource a flight, or charter a private aircraft? For all your exclusive aviation needs, Flyblade is the app for you.
Forget Instagram bragging rights. The mega-rich show off their opulent lifestyles on Rich Kids, an exclusive photo-sharing network. Rich Kids is essentially Instagram for those with Lamborghinis, private planes, and who can afford daily massages for their dogs.
A $1,000 a month subscription-free on Rich Kids means you'll only see photos from other wealthy patrons. Much like the ticks representing verified Facebook and Twitter accounts, the app's monthly fee ensures that everyone who uses it is certifiably affluent. On the app, you'll find rare coin dealers, the scions of prominent real estate families, and a Russian heiress or two.
There's nothing wrong with a bit of flaunting. After all, being rich is boring when nobody sees it. Well, that's what their Google Playstore bio says anyway.
