First App Store reports

Developers are beginning to receive their first full month of sales figures for the App Store, say reports. Although the online storefront opened on July 10th, Apple did not start providing statistics for developers until July 31st, when it then began offering daily tracking. The monthly summaries for each development house are currently confidential, but one anonymous developer is said to note that after the first two weeks sales fell substantially, even if good profit potential may exist for independent coders.

So far, only three sets of developers have provided any kind of sales data. tap tap tap observes that in one week it accumulated $6,928 in revenue off of two apps, Where To and Tipulator, while 2 Across creator Eliza Block was at one point generating over $1,800 per day, though 30 percent of this had to be diverted to Apple. The defunct I Am Rich app netted $5,600 in a day for a German coder, though some of this has been refunded.
