Unfortunately, the experiment was a failure. Cross Forward spent $1,251.75 to generate 84 downloads, or an average of around $15 for each download. Since the app costs just 99 cents, it clearly didn’t pan out.

The developer’s takeaway? “The expense of this experiment is at least cushioned by knowing that 60% of the price went straight into the pockets of my fellow developers, so I guess I just made a $751.05 donation to the beer funds of my peers. Drink Up!”
