I Don’t Typically Do This

Tapbot founders go full-time

Paul Haddad and Mark Jardine are going full-time with Tapbots

We’ve been juggling day jobs with Tapbots for almost 9 months now. As of now that’s no longer the case. This month, Mark and I both gave our respective notices and we’re now going to be able to give Tapbots 100% of our energy. I think it’s nothing short of amazing that we are able to support ourselves with $0 investment (other than time) and all of it $1-$3 at a time. Weightbot sold 100k copies in its first 100 days, Convertbot is selling at about twice that rate. To say we’re excited about the future is an understatement. We’d like to thank all of you guys for getting us to this point.

I wish them all the luck in the world. There’s so many converters in the App Store, it’s unbelievable that they’re selling around 2,000 copies of Convertbot a day. Tapbots prove that good design helps sell simple apps no matter how crowded the market.
