One of the images shown by Phil …. At LoL software (they created teh Jungel Drums App I menionted in an earlier post) had a heap of stats about Apps and developers and the number of Apps downloaded and more but the interesting one was the following ….

  • 280 million Apps were downloaded in December 09 generating more than $250 million
  • of this 30% goes to Apple (they do host the system from which you grab the App for your iPod or iPhone) and 70% to the owner of the App
  • In dollar terms that was $75 million Apple — $175 million App owner

… don’t you want to get a piece of that pie!
I mentioned earlier that this is another form of income that we need to be part of … and imagine what it can do for our out-of-priint books!
