I seriously doubt that sale really impacted their bottom line. Maybe for a few of the small game app developers who got featured....

Wow, typical AI response to anything, not matter what the question "are you trolling?"

No, it is a serious question, several of the apps you listed were in the Google promotion, I purchased several of them myself for NZ$0.10, I imagine a lot of people would have purchased them at that price.

And I brought up Google because you had stated that developers weren't making money and that is clearly not true as Google is certainly making money on ios along with many others. It's almost like you feel that people are simply entitled to success and if it doesn't happen it's automatically someone else's fault.

No it's not, a lot of people wih solid business and dev plans are making peanuts on the app store. Deny all you want.

OK, then tell me how they are marketing these apps. Have they hired a PR firm/person to reach out to media? Gone to relevant trade shows? Reached out to relevant companies for co-branding? What kind of projected revenue did these developers plan to earn and on what did they base these projections?

This, as I am sure you know, is trade info that one does not divulge? What do you expect me to reply to it?

So you can't even say if they have hired a PR firm or what steps they have taken to promote their apps but you can claim that they are all losing money? How convenient.
