Joel Comm’s Farting iTunes App Banks $10,000 Daily
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.
Wait... before you leave, consider these top resources:

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.
Haha! This is what marketing people hope to get. A hit product that has totally nothing to useful to do. But it's loads of fun to have around! My hats off to you Joel! 😀
All the best!

I had no idea when I saw it get promoted by all these bloggers that Joel Comm was behind it all! Very creative product 😀
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!!
Is he the same Adsense guru ???
In short, his fart makes money too 😀
Yea, he's written the Adsense Code books.
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.
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 — https://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.
The success of the ifart app just goes to prove how damn stupid most people are. Donate your f'ing $1 to charity why don't ya?
That was amazing.. .99 a fart is a good price and $10,000 daily is HUGE..
hahahahaha!! all i can say is that's brilliant.
This is funking crazy. Can you imagine to sound in the college dorms across the world. Don't tell anyone shhhh. Im working on the burping app should be out soon.
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've seen this bad boy in action, it's quite brutal! This guy is definitely a genius. I went to his website and apparently he has an interesting internet reality show to become the next internet millionaire.
Just got here Zac, about blogging as you mentioned would it be enough to scaterred the whole ads on one blog and make it easy to monetize, or like this Joel Cumm?
Thanks for quick reply, I appreciated.Wow that's cool making US$10,000 a day.I think i'm in the wrong path then….lol
Mankinds obsession with bowel movement related noises will never cease to amaze me! $10,000 a day from iFart……hahahahahahah…..unreal! Absolutely unreal!
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!
Post is very interesting. This application making that much off money.
