This is a remarkable achievement by any stretch, one that has taken even developers by surprise, who increasingly see the platform as a lucrative opportunity. Take Sebastian Trujillo, for example, a developer that wrote a simple yet clever application called “Fake Calls” with the goal of giving people graceful exits from boring situations – users need only to select the contact they want to receive the call from and set up a timer for the call to come in.
Fake Calls is available for 99 cents and has recently surpassed the 50,000 downloads mark, which means that even after Apple takes their 30 percent cut, Trujillo gets a nice sum for an app that took just a couple of weeks to develop. Like him, there are many others who have found commercial success thanks to the iPhone platform.
