Apple raked in $500,000 or Half a Billion Dollars – side effects


“Apple announced that during the first week of January alone, customers around the world spent almost half a billion dollars on apps and in-app purchases, with New Year’s Day 2015 the single biggest day in App Store sales history.”

Developers made $10 million. Monumental success.

What would be interesting to know is how that $500m was split between the major developers and independents and the position the apps were in the charts. I also wonder if it is just the top 100 apps that make most of the money.

And clearly this shows a few things. More people were buying Apple devices and then spending money on apps. Also, TV scheduling was dreadful so people had more time to play with their new toys.
