Apple Now Telling Developers How Many People Download Their App

Illustration for article titled Apple Now Telling Developers How Many People Download Their App

We reported in our massive feature on the SDK and App Store's shortcomings that Apple didn't even tell devs how many times their app is downloaded. I guess they realized devs might wanna know, 'cause now they're offering daily download statistics to registered devs. One brick at a time. [Mac Rumors]

@Jeffrey903:

So why would Apple include the number of downloads in the app store only to never update the numbers? If they didn't want people knowing the number of downloads, they could have easily left this out.
