Just because I like looking at these numbers. Of the top 10 paid apps 7 of them are Apple apps. Of the three that aren't, Magic Window-Time Lapse Desktop is 7, 7toX is 9 and Angry Birds Seasons at 10.
Sure there's pent up demand but it may indicate there are a lot FCPX users who are looking to move FCP7 projects into FCPX. I guess it's a given that these aren't iMovie and FCE editors (doesn't work it as there's no XML).
A cursory look at how 10.0.3 is going over shows
46 - 5 stars
10 - 4 stars
1 - 3 stars
Interesting is top grossing.
FCPX is number 2 behind Lion.
Motion number 13
Compressor number 14
7toX number 17
In top paid FCPX is 13 which is very high considering the price. It's right behind Quicken Essentials at 12.
I seem to remember Motion and Compressor being much further down on the lists so it may be that this update is driving Motion and Compressor sales to people who previously purchased on FCPX as it becomes a more viable app. I think the new features and 7toX opened the door to a lot of people moving forward.
That's tremendous news. I'm really pleased for Greg and Philip.
All the best,
