Dan Counsell recently published a great post entitled “Paid, Paymium or Freemium,” in which I also happen to be quoted. It reiterates what I’ve been harping on for the last couple of years, which is that paid apps aren’t dead. More generally, it should help independent developers understand the pros and cons of the revenue models available to them on the App Store.
I’m especially glad that Dan correctly labeled them as “revenue models” because it’s a pet peeve of mine when they’re improperly called “business models.” I also agree with him that paymium continues to show promise, especially for yearly upgrades.
