Even the little things matter

Technology Review: “Two years later, Autodesk’s SketchBook apps for phones and the iPad are best-sellers that have been downloaded seven million times. It doesn’t add up to a huge amount of revenue: perhaps $15 million. But there’s more than money to this innovation story. With its first consumer hit, Autodesk now has more customers than it did in all its previous 29 years combined.”

Heh, $15 million in sales is small for Autodesk, but any Indie iOS shop would kill for that sort of revenue. By contrast our little effort makes about $20 per month. Sure, it’s part time, but you get the picture.
