Are you happy with sales?

I've had apps in the top 10 free downloads and in the top 10 paid charts. I have to say....while it's all very excting...it seems the active market of downloaders. buyers, etc, is fairly small. Similar rankings on "other" app stores might get you 100's or 1000's of sales per day, but in the appworld store I'm only experiecing 20-50 per day. Anyone else care to chime in?

First in village or second in Rome? Smiley Happy

 

Yes, the market is small, but keep in mind that competition is not that tough too. So yes, I'm happy with sales so far.

There is a big different between Smartphone vs Tablets.  Are your apps PB apps?

Re: Are you happy with sales?

Maybe you need to reset your expectations. There are tens of millions of smartphones on any platform, but only thousands of PlayBooks sold. What you are doing right now is an app store land grab: you are establishing yourself in a very early stage market before it matures. I think you're doing great given the tiny installed base.
