App Store Does $30 Million in 30 Days

Apple App StoreThat’s no joke. Reports have indicated that in the first month of the App Store’s existence, it has done over $30 million in sales. In that timeframe more than 60 million apps have been downloaded. That’s a heck of a lot of business.

If you do the quick math, that’s over $1 million per day thanks to the App Store… and you can bet the numbers will continue to rise. More apps will be included, developers are working hard on all sorts of apps… So I’d expect sales numbers to continually rise… especially with the iPhone 3G becoming more and more prominent in the marketplace.

Steve Jobs’ comments on this in the Wall Street Journal:

“This thing’s going to crest a half a billion, soon… Who knows, maybe it will be a $1 billion marketplace at some point in time. I’ve never seen anything like this in my career for software.”

I haven’t either. This is an exciting time for developers for sure. They should get their hand in the cookie jar now!
