Seller's Notes

This app has been in the store since November 2009. During that time it has been featured on Conan O'Brien, and been downloaded 1.22 million times. I've toggled it between free and paid (99 cents) over the years. Never ran ads in it and never spent one dollar or minute promoting it. All downloads are from people just finding it in the app store due to the keywords they search matching the name of the app. Lifetime gross revenue is $96,500 and i netted $65,100 after Apple's fees. I will include source code, push the app into your own iTunes Connect account, and it has both iPhone and iPad versions.

I'm selling because i run a bunch of other businesses and don't have time to put the right focus on this. Someone who is in the app business can maintain and promote it far better than i can.

I have posted some additional screenshots which show historical download rankings, historical revenue rankings, proof of profit for last year via App Annie, as well as # of sessions and active users.

The rating for the current version is 3.5 stars, and that's much higher than the long term historical because all bugs have been fixed and the current version is much more improved than initial versions were. It's hard for soundboard apps in general to get 4 stars or higher. People expect the world for 99 cents on the app store :)

Zero marketing dollars have ever been spent, and zero time and effort promoting it. The only blogs it has ever been featured on are ones that scraped the listing information.

I have posted the iTunes Earning report for 2016. It shows gross of $4,030 and net after their cut as $2660. App Annie shows $2653 net paid to me so the # iTunes Connect is showing is rounded up by seven dollars. So this app makes $2653 profit per year and my $5K reserve is less than 2x net which seems very fair considering 3X profit is what many apps sell for.

Reserve price is now $2500, which is less than last year's net profit of $2653. That makes this a phenomenal deal.

Someone asked me to post net profit after Apple's cut for all 60 apps. I have posted screenshots of that for 2015 & 2016 according to App Annie. I will sell all 60 apps for $10K. I netted $8344 last year after Apple's cut so the asking price is just over 1x profit for the past year. Includes the ElasticVen.com website which i host at Digital Ocean for $5 per month.

@user89d87 how much time do you spend on maintaining all 60 apps per day?

Almost zero. I haven't had to push an update in years & you only need to push one every once in a while to keep Apple happy. The support@ barely gets any emails bc the Help page is super thorough & the apps are super simple.

I will give 30 days support to answer questions. In addition, i can put the auction winner in touch with the developer in India that created these.

Apple provides support for issues related to your Apple developer account.
