Our first week of sales is in for iBlood Test and iBlood Test Kids are in. Considering that we were featured all week in the “New & Noteworthy” and “What’s Hot” sections of the Entertainment category on the app store – you’d think that we had a TON of downloads. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Our first seven days we had roughly 120 to 130 downloads and earned about $100 in residual income. This is not what we were hoping for – so as of today, Russ and I released free versions of iBlood Test and iBlood Test Kids.
The free versions went live last night at about 9 PM Mountain Time and in only nine hours we’ve had about 140 downloads. So we are hoping that free is the way to go. We earned .79 cents in the short time it has been live – this is where the comparison between paid apps and free apps will really be discovered. It will be interesting to see if we really can earn more income with a free app versus a paid app.It doesn’t make sense why they paid versions were ranked so highly in the Entertainment section (they’re still listed there!) and had such meager sales. This makes me wonder how others with successful apps are really earning so much money each day? Maybe there is some major factor that I am missing?
If you are one of my readers – please take a moment to download iBlood Test FREE or iBlood Test Kids FREE and give us a 5 star rating and review. This would really help our cause!
