So it's a lot like gold prospecting?

Most app developers can only monetize 10-15% of their users via "common methods". Selling your app allows you to monetize 100% of that user base. Not such a bad deal.

Yep - you can probably make more money by selling shovels.

Really? is that what you think? Where are those shovels?

Stripe, Heroku, Olark, etc.
