Tweetbot 3 Now Top Paid App In 35 Countries Less Than 24 Hours After Release

Tweetbot-3

Tweetbot, the immensely popular Twitter client from Tapbots, finally got its long-awaited iOS 7 update yesterday, introducing a beautiful new design for iPhone. Unsurprisingly, it’s been a massive success so far, and less than 24 hours on, it’s already the top paid app in 35 countries.

That’s according to the latest data from AppAnnie, the app analytics company. As you can see from the image below, Tweetbot 3 is the number one app overall in 35 countries, and the number one social networking app in 70 countries. It’s also one of the top five overall apps in 58 countries.

That’s pretty good going for an app that’s been available less than 24 hours, but it’s hardly surprising. The original Tweetbot was such a success, and its iOS 7 update was hugely anticipated by so many, that it was always going to be a big seller — even if it is a paid upgrade.

Many users expected the update to be free, and if you search for “Tweetbot” on Twitter, you’ll find plenty who have complained about its price tag. But the vast majority are more than willing to pay that for such a great app. The original Tweetbot app is over two years old now, and Tapbots deserve to be paid for all the hard work they put into the new version.

If you haven’t yet downloaded Tweetbot 3, it’s just $2.99 for a limited time. You can download it from the App Store now.

    Any estimates on total earnings for the app so far?

    @ctt1wbw
    assuming that the paper from the Social Science Research network is accurate (http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1924044), note that this paper is a little over a year old, you can use the formula(s) for an apps ranking on a given DAY, not lifetime of the app:
    iPad: 13,516*rank^(-0.903)=downloads
    iPhone: 52,958*rank^(-0.944)=downloads
    downloads*app price = gross earnings
    Being a number one app, the calculation is made simple and equals to 52,958 downloads * $2.99 = ~$158,344.42.
    and again, pure estimate using a year-old formula. The only true way to know is if/when the company releases their numbers.
