Windows Phone 7 dev releases some Marketplace sales numbers
Krashlanderâ€™s developer has released some sales numbers of the performance of their game in Marketplace.
The $0.99 app, which was released at the opening of Marketplace on the 20th October, has so far made the developer 680 sales, for an average of 17 sales per day. The game is currently the top 32nd paid app in Marketplace, and has a 4 star rating.
The software has also seen 2420 downloads, which resulted in a 28% conversion to sales, which is pretty good. The app did best in English-speaking countries, with Australia, UK and USA leading the ranking, but also did well in Germany, where it however had a lower conversion rate. The conversion rate in USA was however quite high at 35%, but the best performance was Australia, where the app saw a 45% conversion rate and around 9% of total sales.
The developer, Jeff Weber, notes on his blog that while the absolute numbers of sales appear low, they were in line with what he expected, and congruent with the size of the installed base.
