Need further proof that you don’t need to invent a revolutionary new tech toy to make money? Look no further than the iFart—an iPhone app that does little more than make, ahem, farting noises.
Since its release on December 12—a mere two and a half weeks ago—the 99-cent app has skyrocketed to number one in the iPhone app store. Not only that, it’s netted the app’s developers a whopping $78K. And just on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day alone, the app pulled in its creators around $40K, with 58,000 downloads, according to VentureBeat.
We’re obviously in the wrong business.
