Wow, dang, no kidding, congratulations Zwilnik!

I'm actually a little surprised there weren't already games that had a million downloads.

We think there are games that have made more than a $1 million (due to being > $1) and there are lots of free apps that have more than a million downloads, but from what we can tell, we're the first to actually sell a million copies.

Nice to do it just as Apple sells a million 3GS' too (although they make a *lot* more profit than we do Smile )

Yeah, nice work/congrats!

Forgive me - I am not into the iPhone craze(if I had the money to spend on an iPhone - well... Smile), but when was the 3G S released? That sounds like a lot of sales in a not very short time. Blink

Anyway, congrats on the million. Grin

Congratulations! I just brought the game out again for the first time in a couple months - it's got staying power, so congrats on that too Smile

She only recently coughed up her 59p. She'd been playing the ad-hoc copy she'd been testing the game with for ages.

That's what happens when your family's all from Yorkshire :/
