iRetroPhone — $30,000 Net Profit for One Day’s Work
iRetroPhone presented their Apple iPhone application last night at the NY Tech gathering. The iRetroPhone application is simple – it takes your iPhone and allows you to dial phone numbers using an old "rotary" phone – the type used on television shows Three’s Company and MASH. CEO Gavi Narra noted that in the first day of sales, they sold 15,000 copies at $2.99 and the net revenue was just over $30,000. The iRetroPhone app took 1 day to build.
This app reminds me of the MillionDollarHomepage as it will only work once. Outside the gathering, another app developer noted that he has worked day after day building quality apps and hasn’t sold 15,000 copies. The app was listed in the NY Times and one developer tells me that’s where the sales came from. The iRetroPhone app is now listed at 99 cents in the app store.
