“New information from Sensor Tower confirms that whether you’re developing apps for consumers, or if app development for others is your business, Apple’s App Store is a good place to do business,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld.
“The data shows that at least 69 iOS developers managed to make their first million-dollars in app revenue last year, and that’s just on the U.S. App Store,” Evans writes. “Not only this, but the number of publishers breaking that million-dollar mark was almost double the throng who did so in 2015, when 34 developers achieved the target.”
“While game publishers ‘accounted for the single largest category of first-time million-dollar earners across both platforms,’ Apple has also seen developers of utilities, photo and video, social networking, and lifestyle apps achieve this target.
