  10. 10. PocketGear.com's App Store 10
  11. 11. iPhone App Store It has been predicted that the App Store could create a profitable marketplace with revenue exceeding US$1 billion annually for the company. As of February 10, 2009, there are over 20,000 third-party applications officially available for the iPhone and iPod Touch on the App Store. 10 million applications were downloaded the first weekend. On January 16, 2009, Apple announced on its website that 500 million applications had been downloaded. 11
  12. 12. Trism Makes $250,000 Since Release Trism, a popular Bejeweled replacement available in the iPhone's App Store, has reportedly made the developer $250,000 in the two month since its release. While that's not crazy-mad profit for a team of programmers to make on even a casual game, one must remember that Trism was coded by just one guy. Sales will probably decline over time as the title loses prominence in the App Store, but it's not a completely absurd thought that the game could break $1 million in sales eventually. And as everyone knows, a million bucks is officially a lot of money. 12
  13. 13. Windows Mobile Marketplace An easily discovered on-device application that is installed on every Windows Mobile 6.5 device, and includes prominent placement on the Start menu. Leverage existing Microsoft developer tools, such as Visual Studio, for faster time to market. 70% of sales go to app developer. 13
  14. 14. Windows Mobile Marketplace Distribute your applications globally. With more than 50 device manufacturers and 160 mobile operators in 55 countries designing or offering Windows Mobile devices. And, starting with Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows® Marketplace for Mobile will be installed on every retail Windows Mobile device. So millions of users around the world can shop for your applications.
