People want to be productive with their shiny new iPad, and so they spend on good productivity apps in the App Store. But if a developer has to deal with Apple’s revenue and such, what about Apple’s own paid apps - Pages, Keynote and Numbers?
According to the latest estimate reported by 9to5mac, Apple could make more than $40 million a year with the iWork apps for iPad.
“How did they work it out?
- They estimate the top paid iPad app does about 7,500 unit sales on a Saturday or Sunday, and about 2,500 unit sales on a weekday.
- All the iWork apps have been in the top ten since the iPad launched, with Pages at number one.
- They estimate: “7,500 downloads per app x 2 weekend days, and 2,500 downloads per app x 5 weekdays, = about 27,500 weekly unit downloads per app.”
They estimate Apple’s making $825,000 per week on these sales.”
Impressive, isn’t it?
