    Nice, great pic! Although all I took away from that was: A lot of competition + 30% of all revenue taken way = I'm gonna be poor for a looooong time haha.

    Well I guess I'm a little more optimistic because the things that stood out to me were the 58,000,000 potential customers and the %70 revenue gain. ^_^

    Thanks for sharing the illustration. I think that the competition is not as big as it looks like at first glance. Many apps are not related to gaming and if you take a closer look at the games section you will see that many products are not very well produced. I am still convinced that good software will pay off and that every single developer here as a good chance of earning some money - provided that the quality of his apps is high enough. needless to say, most apps are not expensive but people are still a bit stingy when it comes to spending money :)

    This graphic is way old, there is something like over 350k apps in the app store today
