Mac App Store Top Charts for 70 Cents

Jeff Johnson (tweet):

I’m not sure exactly what it means to be near the bottom of the overall charts. I do know exactly what it means to be near the bottom of the Social Networking charts: nothing! There are 180 apps each on the Top Paid Social Networking and Top Grossing Social Networking charts. My app was 18 out of 180 and sold 1 unit.


We do know that some developers are doing very well on the Mac App Store. The question is, how many? It’s hard not to conclude that the top charts themselves are extremely top-heavy.

Update (2017-02-02): Nick Heer:

Of note, most of the apps ahead of Underpass are third-party implementations of popular iOS apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger. And, at number thirteen in the Top Grossing chart, Apple’s long-outdated FaceTime app. That doesn’t sound like a healthy ecosystem.
