After seeing this post about webOS app sales on PreCentral, I thought it would be a good time to look back at my apps' sales. And in this post, you get real numbers, because...why not? :-)

Summary: App sales since the TouchPad release have been impressive. My numbers are a little weird because my paid apps have separate versions for phones (i.e. Mojo) and the TouchPad (i.e. Enyo).

I have four paid apps for the TouchPad, and here are their approximate sales (by number - all apps are 99 cents except FlightPredictor HD, which is $1.99) in July and August:

JulyAugust (as of today)
FlightPredictor HD155180
Simple Alarms165130
We the People HD8565
Private Browser HD5535

A few interesting things:So obviously I find it impossible to say how well the TouchPad is selling, but people are definitely buying apps (myself included!), and for that I am thankful. Here's to webOS's continued success!


Comment from cifarelli:

Being able to choose custom days of the week for an alarm to go off sounds awesome. That would be great for things like getting my son to preschool on T/W/Th but not M/F. :) Being able to set it once and have it go off on all those days (as opposed to three times, once for Tues, once for Weds, and once for Thurs) would rock :)

Comment from gregstoll:

Hmm, good point! That feature wasn't in the initial version - I only added it after a user complained in a review. (more evidence for my not knowing anything :-) )
