Nearly 2,000 app devs made $1m the last year

But a new infographic released by Pollen VC and Priori Data, entitled The App Developers Millionaires Index, claims that 1,887 app developers have made more than $1m over the last twelve months.

The revelation that 78 per cent of millionaire app developers are games creators may not come as a surprise to most devs, but the fact that you don’t need to be in Top Grossing Charts to make money might.
