The release of iPhone OS 3.0 has brought new life to some great old iPhone and iPod touch apps, and Freeverse's Flick Fishing is one of them. Flick Fishing has been one of the most popular apps in the App Store, so popular that it is actually one of the top ten most downloaded apps of all time, and it is about to get even more popular with a bunch of new additions. The Flick Fishing update adds a new fishing location, fish, and a brand new game mode called Fish Jack, which will utilize the new peer-to-peer connectivity, but it all comes at a cost. We will get to that cost in a moment, but first, the new features and content. Flick Fishing's new in-app purchase, Private Beach Pack, includes an all new fishing location, three new fish, one new exclusive named fish, and a new game mode called Fish Jack. The new location is a private beach where you will be able to catch grouper, striped bass, barracuda, and the "named" fish. The pack also includes Fish Jack, the new peer-to-peer game in which players catch fish up to a given target weight without exceeding that weight. The first person to get the closest to the target weight goal wins. Flick Fishing without any of the new additions is available in the App Store for $.99. The Private Beach Pack in-app purchase that includes everything we listed above is another $.99. So, if you want the full Flick Fishing experience, it is going to cost you $1.98. So what do you think? Is a $.99 asking too much for Flick Fishing's additional content?
