(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Rogue Amoeba recently put up conversion rates for their apps, and Paul Kafasis suggested I do the same. So I have!

These are the numbers from 2006-

App% of DownloadsConversion
VoodooPad55.4%3.3%
VoodooPad Lite23.3%100%!!!
FlySketch17.5%5%
FlyGesture3.7%1.5%

And you wonder why there hasn't been an update to FlyGesture... :) (That's ok, I'm it's biggest fan).

As I was looking through my logs, I was kind of shocked at how often the web spiders and such make requests for my dmg's. Here are those numbers as well (and remember, this is just 2006):

Googlebot: 4,479 Yahoo Slurp: 2,603 Jeeves: 400 msnbot: 5,801 iGetter: 2,020 - this is like from 10 people. wtf? Some java app that grabs all my apps in little burts: 18,755 And then there was some idiot who downloaded VoodooPad 2,014 times in 10 minutes.

FuzzMeasure Pro 2.0 is now ready for human consumption.

Congrats to Chris Liscio on shipping. I know he worked really hard to get this app out.
