I could do it.  Might take a while.

Of course, after my account is subsequently hacked and drained, it won't be an issue.

When the alternative is not getting to spend any of it outside of the itunes ecosystem, that's an acceptable loss.  The bigger issue will be getting your app approved for sale.

The app store is a cesspool of shiatty "free to play games" and downright scam apps. What the hell could you spend it on except farmville crap?

Don't they have an app that gives you more icons on the iphone? That's what I want! I love icons!

As an added bonus, maybe some random crackpot will also buy your $999 app

No one has caught that the IRS would want $5k in taxes.

What are you talking about?  you can easily get your Android app published on Google Play.

Oh wait.

So, an iPhone 5 and one complete run-through of a scam game on the App Store? Sweet.
