Its easy to make $1 million in mobile apps. As long as you have $10 million to invest. ;0)

Good one, Andy :-)

There was a good article on TechCrunch last week on a recent survey of moble app developers - they say half (50%) of iOS developers and even more (64%) Android developers are operating below the “app poverty line” of $500 per app per month.  Here's the article: http://techcrunch.com/2014/07/21/the-majority-of-todays-app-businesses-are-not-sustainable/

"More than 50% of app businesses are not sustainable at current revenue levels".... I think that says it all.

How does this differ from the traditional markets?  Go back 15 years and of the 100k shareware programs out there, how many made more than 500 month? 1%? Shrink wrap software (is there a better term for this?) has always been a winner take all game.
