iGlowStickPro Wins Big from Apple Mistake

by arn
 

Picture 1An otherwise unremarkable $0.99 app released today by iPhone developer Spielwerk has had a big win due to a mistake by Apple.

The app iGlowStickPro is a simple glow-stick entertainment app and really had little to distinguish itself from the hundreds of other apps released this week…. until a mistake on Apple’s part positioned it as the #1 selling paid app in their top 100 list. (See image on right).

These top 100 lists serve as a massive amount of advertising for developers who make that high, but iGlowStickPro’s positioning was simply an Apple glitch that was quickly corrected. The incorrect list was up for maybe 1-2 hours, but the impact has already been seen.

iGlowStickPro is now ranked #40 in all paid entertainment apps already. A huge rise for day #1 of sales. Other apps listed may have also seen sales boosts, but many of them were already ranked so the difference so far has been less dramatic.

The Top 100 lists seem back in order as of this writing.

    When I click on the link that takes me to the appshopper.com website it says its $0.99 but when I click on the link to the itunes store its $1.19. What is up with that? Cool app though.

    The Best Forex Software – Based on Performance

    There are many approaches to determine which is the best forex software, but of course, I think you will agree with me that performance or profit potential is what matters the most when looking at the different options. Indeed, many factors can influence your perception of what the best forex software should be like, ranging from automation capabilities to user friendliness, but in the end, when you purchase this kind of tool you are essentially looking for one thing: profits.

    This glowstick for iphone seems pointless, but my daughter had to try it. I can’t believe all the different apps there are for her phone. Wow.

    Will the new Apple Tablet replace the Kindle, the Sony Reader and the Nook? Will the e-reader function be far superior to the other e readers especially when it comes to reading the newspaper?

    John – re your comment on price
    Apps are usually listed in $USD on most sites, the lowest paid price is 99cents. Your local app store will convert that to your local currency, which in this case is higher.

    I will recommend not to hold off until you earn enough money to order goods! You can get the mortgage loans or financial loan and feel yourself free

    Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
