Many small developers have made huge amounts of money thanks to the App Store, and many continue to do so. Just because you make a app and submit it does not mean you should be raking in cash instantly. Big companies start small.
Damn that's a lot of apps!
Quite right! Apps only designed for iPad.
Or 800 per second :eek:
Those figures are just insane aren't they? - almost impossible to get your head round!
