Study: You need to make $47,000 per day to crack Apple App Store's top 10 paid apps According to a new study by app analytics firm Distimo, you must gross $47,000 per day to crack the Apple App Store's top 10 paid apps list.
The app that ranked 10th for top paid averaged about 4000 downloads a day, on average, in May 2013, says the report.

To break into the top 50, you have to average revenue of $12,000 per day.

Moving over to free applications, the 10th spot required 72,000 downloads per day and the top 50 required 23,000 or more downloads.

Somewhat strangely, Distimo found that Thursdays were the easiest day of the week to break into the top lists, as less downloads are done on that day. Weekends see major surges and the top lists do not move usually.

I don't feel like searching for that info.
