iPhone App Store Sales for #1 Spot Revealed
Apple's broadening of App Store acceptances has opened the door to a number of new novelty applications including InfoMedia's iFart Mobile [App Store]. The $0.99 humor application has rapidly seen success and has rocketed up to the #1 App Sales slot.
Most interesting is that the developer of the app has been very transparent about his sales numbers during his app's climb in ranking. From a previous blog post:
12/14 - 841 units - #76 overall
12/15 - 1510 units - #39 overall
12/16 - 1797 units - #22 overall
12/17 - 2836 units - #15 overall
12/18 - 3086 units - #10 overall
12/19 - 3117 units - #9 overall
12/20 - 5497 units, - #4 overall
He's since revealed to us the most recent sales numbers for the last couple of days which includes the coveted #1 spot on the App Store's Top 100 sales.
12/21 - 9760 units, #2 overall
12/22 - 13274 units, #1 overall
After Apple's 30% cut, that means the iFart Mobile is generated $9198 in one day.
These sales numbers are especially interesting to developers looking at the potential market for their iPhone apps. From what we've heard from developers, however, these targets do constantly change and have been growing. So app sales for the #1 spot will likely increase over time as the installed market of iPhones and iPod touches continue to increase.
