TMO to Interview Developers at WWDC 2011

Once again, The Mac Observer is planning to interview Apple developers at WWDC. If you’re a developer for Mac, iPhone, iPod touch or iPad and would like to have your company showcased during WWDC week, please contact us.

Last year, Dave Hamilton and Bryan Chaffin interviewed a dozen Apple developers, both large and small, and told their stories to TMO’s readers. Highlights from 2010 included ABC and SmileOnMyMac (now Smile).

If you’re planning to be at WWDC 2011 and would like to talk about your company with TMO in person, contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to schedule a time, June 6-9.



Could one developer or news site attending WWDC please ask Apple to share the average individual app earnings for each of the last 4 years? That’s the net paid by Apple (after the 30% discount) for the average app for a 12 month period—hopefully July to June—starting 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010.

If the number for 2010 is >$25K US—I’m in!  If Apple refuses to share such information, well…


I’m guessing the average app payout is significantly less than $25,000. Maybe around a couple thousand. The median would be even less, maybe $500.


The income opportunity reminds me of that old West Virginia song:

Sixteen Apps and what do you get, another day older and deeper in debt.

I owe (30% of) my soul to the Company Store.
