Joel Comm’s Farting iTunes App Banks $10,000 Daily

  • Published on : Dec 24 2008

Joel Comm (and his company, Developer InfoMedia) has done it again. I’m sure you’ve seen his name across several blogs, or internet marketing articles over the past few years. Most notably known for running the first internet reality show, “Next Internet Millionaire“, Joel is now being recognized for his latest killer iPhone application, iFart. It may sound stupid, silly and even pointless… but the amount of money this application is pulling in daily is serious.

VentureBeat and Wired reports that the iFart app is generating over $10,000 a day! What’s the point of the iFart app? Simply put, it’s a fart machine. iTunes users can download the app and select what fart sounds they want to hear, then play them through their iPhone or iPod. iFart also has different fart features such as Security Fart, Sneak Attack and Fart Now.

It’s also no surprise that Joel is publicly sharing his iTune success and stats with other. Over at his blog, he has official updates and install numbers on the iFart app. Take a look at how the app goes from 75 installs on 12/12 to over 5,000 installs on 12/20. Quite amazing.

Since the iFart app went live, word has spread of it’s success and profitability, and more “fart” apps are being added to iTunes daily. Apparently the demand for humor and fart sounds is more serious than most people would imagine.

This isn’t the first time something so silly made mega money… just a few quick instances are icanhascheezburger.com getting acquired for $2 million dollars, eBaumsWorld for $20+ million and early Facebook apps getting acquired.

    PS I think the spread of the fart apps is simply due to people wanting to catch some of the profit from the bandwagon – I doubt they will make as much as the original!!

    Amazing that the application is generating that much income.

    I had no idea when I saw it get promoted by all these bloggers that Joel Comm was behind it all! Very creative product :D

  • http://blog.power-maxx.com Taris Janitens

    you’re right – it IS truly amazing – but at .99 per download, that was clever marketing in itself – for less than a buck you can have all the ridiculous farting fun you ever wanted!!

    I read about it on Wired as well and I was like "woahh" when I saw the name Joel Comm was behind it all. Pretty impressive.

    Hey Zac, thanks for the article. We’re very pleased with the success of iFart Mobile and look forward to developing more apps for the iPhone.

    Merry Christmas!

    What I think on this matter is that if Joel was just a nobody that decided to have the app developed, it wouldn't have gained so much success or nothing at all.

    It is because Joel is well known by the top bloggers on the Internet, that the word of this application spread like a disease!

    This is a great article on the REAL cost of making and selling an APP — http://appcubby.com/blog/files/financial_realitie… – I don't know how much Joel has spent, but don't get fooled into thinking it's easy money – – as someone else pointed out – Joel is Joel, not JoeShmoe.

    Unbelievable isn't it that schoolboy kind of funnystuff should be able to generate so much income. If it gets a laugh then no problem, enough doom and gloom about at the moment. Whoever thought of it, hats off to you.

    I can't believe he nets $10K per day from this, makes me wonder why I didn't think of it first! Good for him, developing a simple concept into an idea that nets serious coin!
