Apple Is The Richest iPad Developer So Far?

Pages iPad app

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.

Crazy iPad Numbers: 5,000 Copies of $50 OmniGraffle App Sold In 32 Days

OmniGraffle for iPad

The Omni Group today announced that it sold its five thousandth OmniGraffle® for iPad™ on Wednesday, just 32 days after its introduction on April 3.

That’s right around $250,000 in sales in just a tad over a month.  Not too shabby.  OmniGraffle is described as a diagramming and concept visualization program, and in their statement Omni Group (the app’s publisher) noted that they ‘strongly believe in the iPad’s potential as a productivity tool‘.  Looks like at least 5,000 others would agree with that.

It really does feel as if the iPad apps market is going to support considerably higher pricing than the iPhone has so far.  I think that’s a good thing.

Are any of you OmniGraffle users?  If so, how are you finding it?  Worth the $49.99 price tag?
