BlackJet, Sotheby’s Catalogue, and more

BlackJet provides subscribers with on-demand private-jet service—if they can afford the flights’ costs plus a $2,500 membership fee. “If you’re used to flying private jets, it’s supposed to be, like, a really good deal.” (iOS only)

Sotheby’s Catalogue puts the auction house’s full array of available collectibles and fine-art masterpieces online for browsing. (Free, iOS or Android)

VIP Black helps users book yachts, hire butlers, and shop for wine or high-end clothes. The app also offers discounts on such services, but you need to spend $1,000 on the app to see them. (iOS only)

Inspirato provides listings of multimillion-dollar luxury homes available for use in destinations around the world. The name is great: It sounds like a foreign word for “you can’t afford this.” (Free, iOS or Android)
