App-promo.com released a new infographic to show what it takes to succeed in the app economy. And the results are kinda expected – the same rules that guide the “regular” business, work with apps. It takes time, patience and hard work to succeed — developers that stick to their app and market it for more than 3 years are seeing great success, some earning over $500,000.
App-promo.com also found that 81% of app developers would not abandon their app despite the same amount not making enough money to support a standalone business. Moreover, developers are having a hard time breaking even with their app for some time.
As for which app categories are working the best, it’s games and utility apps… These and many other details are neatly presented in the infographic below. Check it out.
