Some Apps are overpriced. Sometimes it is cheaper to hire a programmer to develop the functionalities of an app that you are looking for. I suggest fiverr.com, Storetasker or Shopify Experts (They're pretty awesome and not that expensive). Many times I've found out that it was cheaper to get it done this say then simply paying on a monthly basis for an app.
Hope this help. Regarding the App you're looking for, from what I know, no BUT always, always chat with a Guru, they are aware of pretty much all apps. They are the best people to reach for such questions.
every app that would be useful to me cost so much money.
