    I seen apost on techcrunch or lifehacker (can't remember which) talking about how much they had made before the appstore was even open but is anybody keeping track or does anybody have a more updated verison of how much they've made so far from the appstore, both relating to the developers of applications and apple.

    I'm sure that Apple has purchase logs and so forth, so Apple can keep track.

    I don't know if anyone else might know, or have access to that information.

    Hopefully Apple will provide this information regularly, such as a chart showing peak sales and so forth.

    Does it not say the number of downloads each app has had anyway so you can find out from that?

    Now the question is whether that number is of downloads total, or unique downloads.

    Cause you can redownload a purchased application for free.

    You can see how many times an app is sold in the appstore it self. Add it up.
