Apple Is The Richest iPad Developer So Far?

The "iWork" apps are already on track to potentially generate more than $40 million in annual sales, according to our analysis of App Store sales so far.
And in the first month, they’ve probably already passed $3 million in sales, likely making Apple the most successful iPad developer, by revenue, so far.

That’s a slice from this recent report at Business Insider.  I’m sure I shouldn’t be surprised at these numbers, but I am.  Apparently all three of the Apple iWork apps – Pages, Numbers, and Keynote – have been in the Top 10 for paid apps ever since the iPad was launched and Pages has been at Number 1 for ‘much of the time’.

I absolutely agree with Business Insider’s conclusion that this ‘shows there is a real appetite for serious apps on the iPad‘.  I feel like I can work quite well on the iPad – the only big thing missing is a decent blogging app (for my needs).

I’m very glad to see that ‘serious’ apps can thrive in the iPad App Store – and look forward to seeing some third party developer success stories in this area.
