Full Analysis of iPhone Economics -
I promised to return with the full analysis of the iPhone App Store economics analysis, from every angle, with all data I have managed to find. This blog intends to paint the most accurate picture of the specifically Apple related iPhone App Store market economics - and lessons from here should apply to most other smartphone app stores as well. The one final piece of the puzzle that had been missing, that we desperately needed to ge the full, honest picture, was the Apple official revenue number, which we finally got a few days ago, at $1.43B total revenues generated over 2 years, and thus $1B paid to developer. Now we can do the full analysis. But first a few general comments. There is nothing inherently wrong with making a smartphone app. Similarly there are cases where an app would be ridiculous. So lets start with the 'big picture' numbers and those that come directly from Apple and/or are calculated directly from those. But the picture starts out bleak. Now the heartbreaking news.
