iPhone Apps

Good insights into selling iPhone apps from Craig Hockenberry and the App Cubby.

Kleiner funded iPhone games company here.

Story of RunKeeper learnings here.  Premium version ($9.99) sold 5k in two months…changed to ad supported free version that sold 120k in two months…

Update 2/23/09:

Another detailed analysis of iPhone application downloads.  Their analysis is wrong though as there download rate dropped off dramatically even before they charged a fee of $.99.

Average use of free apps lasts about 30 days
