Today we celebrate our 100th sale of Newton on the Android market. We released the full paid version last week and are pretty happy with the outcome. As stated earlier the paid version is more like a “support us by buying us some beer” version and it seems to have worked out.
Out of the 100 sales 11 have been cancled. At a price of 0.99€ that’s a pre-tax income of 88,11€. Now here comes the fun part. Google takes away a bit for it being an Android market app as well as for doing the payments via Google Checkout. So how much does that leave for us in the end? 56.59€. Yes. The taxes make up around 35%. Pretty hefty. On top of that i have to pay my tax department a little (as long as i stay beneath 700€ per year i’m luckily not obliged to pay taxes). Oh well, becoming rich and famous is probably out of reach anyway 🙂
Thanks to all the people that bought the 0.99€ version. We really appreciate it. Another shoutout to the soul that just donated 5$ to our efforts on other stuff like libgdx etc. via paypal. We’ll drink our beers thinking of you guys 🙂
