App Sales and Hourly Earnings Calculated

Interested in some data about app sales?

I wrote a Ruby script which parsed my worklog files for timestamps, calculate the difference, add it up and then return in a human-readable form the amount of time it took to develop Calendar Paste.

4 days and 18 hours (114h 59min 0s)

So I logged about 115 hours of active development time, planning, tinkering with the website and whatnot—and I definitely spent more hours on this project before I began logging my progress.

Maybe around Christmas wasn’t the best time to release a productivity app in the first place. I’m curious how January will turn out when everyone’s businesses return to normal.
