iPhoto for iOS Hits 1 Million Users in 10 Days

LoopInsight reports that Apple's new iPhoto for iOS has hit 1 million users in the 10 days from its launch:

Apple told me today that its newest iOS app, iPhoto, hit 1 million users in less than 10 days after its release. It’s important to note that figure is users, not downloads. It’s quite possible that one user downloaded the app multiple times, but Apple isn’t counting those, only the unique users.

At $4.99 per sale, that comes to $4,990,000 in revenue over that time.

Apple launched iPhoto in early March alongside the new iPad announcement. iPhoto for iOS runs on both iPad and iPhone and provides a Multi-Touch interface to browse, edit and share photos from your iOS device. [Direct Link]

They really need a way to work with your iPhoto library on iMac when on home Wi-Fi. Similar to how home sharing works on iPhone/Apple TV. It would be nice to be able to play with main iPhoto library and not what is just in the cloud or on device.

Great app though.

I can't wait for the iPad apps and Mac apps to start syncing in a very tight way.

I want to see my iOS iPhoto mirror my Mac's iPhoto library precisely. Each and every photo and album...the same. Naturally, it won't contain all the actual files, but it will show tiny thumbnails of everything...then, just like with iTunes Match, I can request which albums I want to beam over ot my iPad, and which ones I want to remove. Really, more like turning them "on" and "off" than anything else. They're always all on the Mac, but only some of them live on the iPad.

Then, because edits are non-destructive, I want ALL edits to sync both ways. If I edit a photo on the iPad and my wife edits the same photo on the Mac at the sam time then both devices should have BOTH versions after a minute, and that should only take a few KB of data to accomplish, since it's all just meta-data.

This is how iOS and Mac OS will merge...not by becoming the same OS, but by the internal connections within apps. It looks like Mountain Lion is pushing iWork this way...I hope there's plans for everything else, too.

I've really enjoyed the app, though there was more of a learning curve than I expected. When I put the app in front of my wife, it took some time to really get it down.

I was also glad to see that it can take images bigger than the 19 megapixel limit...in a round about way. (a blog post on how it works with larger images (http://blog.macminicolo.net/post/19646911348/ipadiphoto5d3))

It's also crazy that a company can have a side project to a side project to a side project and still make $5m in a month.

Loving the app. So many cool features, and for 5 bucks, it's a steal. I'm so glad I waited and didn't get the Photoshop app.
