It is time for another report. The reaction to my last post, about the diagrams I show, was a bit sparse. In fact, only one person said his opinion about it. I nevertheless will add more pictues in my new posts. So I’ll start right away with it.
General Benefit of X-MAS
Below you can see the total downloads of all my apps for December 2012 and January 2013. You can clearly notice the peak around christmas time. The increase of activated devices had a direct impact on my downloads. After christmas however, downloads went back to normal.
The same goes for the sales, even though the peak was not that distinct here. The sales during the week were quite high though:
So downloads went back to normal after christmas, but the sales peaks on the weekends are a bit higher than before. It is my understanding that some people tend to wait a few days until they finally decide to unlock my apps. Of course, there are also people that buy stuff on the day that they download.
Like I told you, I have been using RevMob for the last two months now, and I am more pleased with it than with any other ad-network I tried. I made $4,5k in my first, and $4,8k in my second month, with roughly 50k – 80k impressions a day! For february, it looks like the revenue is going down a bit. I think this has mostly to do with the fact that many companies were advertising their apps during christmas, and less companies are doing it at the moment. I am sure this will be compensated in the next month. Of course, I will keep you updated.
I was all aflutter when I realized that inner-active finally added iAd support to their SDK and Corona integrated the new inner-active SDK into their framework. I surmise that fact had something to do with the numberous emails I wrote both companies in the last weeks
Unfortunately, I cannot use iAds in Bloo Kid at the moment, since Corona still has a bug which deactivates the multi-touch feature once an Ad is shown. So Bloo Kid is unplayable after the first Ad, which is totally inacceptable. I have filed a bug and wait for a fix. I will then keep you updated with my experience, even though I am afraid Bloo Kid 2 might be finished even before the Bug in corona is fixed
But since Bloo Kid 2 is done using Monkey, I can integrate the iAds there myself and tell you of that experience instead.
As always, feel free to ask your questions in the comments section of this post!
