Firemint reveals sales figures for Flight Control

Firemint, creators of Flight Control, published a detailed breakdown of their sales on their blog today. Flight Control is a fun little game where you take the role of an air traffic controller and guide planes and helicopters to various runways. I bought it a couple of weeks ago and find it fun and slightly addicting in an OCD kind of way. (They also just released version 1.1 which I haven't had a chance to try out yet.)

It's cool to get a peek into sales of a top rated app. One interesting note is that about 80% of their sales were to English speaking countries (the US, Great Britain, Canada and Australia), and considering the app isn't localized, that's 20% of their sales to non-English speaking countries. I wonder how localizing the app would change those numbers?

Thanks for pointing that!

By the way, I'm an aspiring iPhone app developer and your blog is very helpful and inspiring.

Again, thanks a lot.
