Camera+ Rakes in Over $50,000 on Christmas Day

Camera+, the iPhone app by tap tap tap that was at the source of some controversy earlier this year and only just returned to the App Store a few days ago, earned its developer over $50,000 on Christmas day alone according to MacRumors.

Camera+ had been removed from the App Store in August for violating Apple’s development guidelines because of a hidden feature that enabled the use of the iPhone’s volume button to trigger the camera’s shutter. The app finally returned to the App Store on December 22, minus the VolumeSnap feature that was the initial source of trouble.

tap tap tap provided sales information to MacRumors, showing the app peaking at nearly 80,000 downloads on Christmas day. At its current sale price of $.99 and after deducting Apple’s 30% share of revenue for all apps sold, tap tap tap earned over $54,000 from Camera+ sales on that day alone.

At the time of this post, Camera+ is #1 in the Top 200 Paid iPhone Photography apps in the App Store, and #12 in overall in the Top 200 Paid iPhone apps. Camera+ is one of our favorite camera apps for the iPhone and we highly recommend it if you’re looking for an app that offers additional on-screen tools to help you capture better pictures and edit your photos with borders, effects, and more. To celebrate the release of Camera+ 2.0, the app is currently on sale for $.99, down from its previous price of $1.99.

    wow – it does pay of to screw and ignore your users and clients for 4 months. and the publicity you get – no honest, hard working and caring developer can dream of that kind of app coverage.

    I have seen this stuff before. Likely they purchased the product themselves to push the numbers up and get this publicity. Small investment to Apple for selling it back to yourself I suppose.
