Programmer earns $600 000 on the game for iPhone27th February 2009
At the moment, the online shop of Apple's iTunes App Store offers more than 20 000 applications for iPhone. Nevertheless every independent developer can hope that it will be his app to become a hit and, thus, he will make a fortune.
Ethan Nicholas, a creator of the popular game called iShoot, quit his job the very day his application became the leader of online sales at App Store and began bringing him about $37000 a day. Ethan was an engineer in the company Sun Microsystems and needed money badly to feed his family. He was inspired by the success story of another developer, Steve Demeter, who created iPhone apps as well. He developed the puzzle Trism which earned him more than $250 000 in two months.
So, having nothing but inspiration and poor life, Ethan worked full day in the company and then devoted a full 8-hour shift to his project. Already, Nicholas earned approximately $ 600'000. He says that he has no doubts to become a millionaire in the near future.
Before, single programmers could only dream of such income from their products. But App Store gives single developers any opportunity to make money. All you need is an interesting idea and some skill to embody it in the program code.
