+ - Is the Apple App Store a casino?-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Fast Company takes a look at the Apple App Store and concludes that it's a casino" where most developers are making tragic losses and a tiny few are striking it filthy rich. The article discusses a new book exposing the App Store millionaires, called "Appillionaires", which compares the psychological effects of a hit app on a programmer to a gambler's high. One millionaire programmer, an "Appillionaire", explains the intense feeling of being in the top-ten: "The App Store had established some kind of intravenous connection to my body and was pumping me full of Apple-branded heroin." But, the piece warns, the majority of developers fail to make any return on their app."
