I am not an app developer, and I have no plans of becoming one anytime soon. This question is just for my personal curiosity. I was just downloading yet another series of apps (read: addiction) from the App store and I was wondering - can someone who runs an iPhone app company give me a snapshot of their business?
How many downloads do you get for your apps each month, and how many paid developers do you have on your team? Do you outsource most of your work or design in-house? Are the margins on apps enough to allow you to run a business?
And, I guess most of all: do you enjoy your work?
Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
