  14. 14. App Distribution: iPhone Sell apps on the iTunes App Store 70% goes to software publisher (reasonable!) But if a user requests a refund, developer pays 100% Delayed payments 30,000+ apps (Fortune, March 2009) 1 billion apps in 9 months App store features Free vs. paid tensions Mean price of a paid app is $2.55 (O’Reilly, March 2009) Excellent search & browse For each app: Long description, picture, reviews Apple handles Tier 1 support Virtually painless app update notification & installation features Many small publishers have found success: Tap Tap Revenge New York Times, “iPhone Gold Rush,” April 5, 2009 App approval issues Mysterious process, requirements; arbitrariness Long delays for approval April 27, 2009 MoMo Chicago: Android vs. iPhone 14
  15. 15. App Distribution: Android Sell apps on the Android App Market $25 fee to register 70% goes to software publisher (reasonable!)

Publish & it’s immediately live! Google reserves right to remove apps from market.
