I amn't sure whether I should be celebrating with the release of my first new game, so I made this poll to see the average number of downloads. You are welcome to vote or comment, but you do not have to give any information. I understand this may be private info, but thanks for your input!

    If it is the first week for the app (live on the App Store) than it's probably 100+

    However, after it dies down I'm getting around 15.

    Were about to release our first app in a couple weeks. I'll let you know how it goes download wise!

    why not make two polls? one for paid revenue, the other for free downloads

    Check out my other apps at and get in touch with me at :

    @IcedB all right, it makes no sense this poll.
    @master200012 did you mean paid or free or both?

    I think this post is in fact very interesting, its my first time developing a game and i hope earn at least enought money to buy a new mac, but i dont know the averege of sells in the app market...

    would be great if you specify free and paid downloads!

    I was actually assuming the lite version (free) of an app.

    Also, it depends on whether or not you market it.

    Not to be pessimistic but for a paid version, in my opinion, the app would hardly sell...:P

    Depends on the platform (iOS, Kindle, Nook, etc). My best app about 1200+ per week.

    Oh I answered how many for paid apps. When I put my game free for a week it was in the 1000+ category each day. For paid apps, so far it's in the 10-99.

    LOL @master200012
    If it makes you feel better, most of my apps only get like 10-15 downloads per week, and I don't use GameSalad for all of them :)

    nah, I'm fine, @deadlights .

    But it does interest me which markets tend to sell better.

    I heard the Kindle sells great, I know business on the App Store is harsh, but I haven't heard much about the other markets.

    Any experience on this?

    @master200012 In my experience, I sell way more on the Nook than the Kindle. It really depends on the genre of game though. On the iPhone, my action/adventure games do better, while on the Nook, my educational games do much better. The Kindle is kind of hit or miss for me, I haven't really figured out what works there :)

    Some days I get up to 300 downloads and some days I get 1 download. The minimum I get in a week is 30 downloads and the maximum is 400 downloads.
