Paid Apps that Pay Off: $150,000 in a Month

We all know the Android Market's bad rap: developers make money on paid apps. Rovio said so. Larva Labs said so.

This series of posts will look at a few examples, including one developer who brought in more than $150,000 in revenue in less than a month from a single app.
