A PCalc 1.2 Post-Mortem? Not Yet

Okay, it’s a little early for another post-mortem, it’s only been out just over 24 hours. But day one sales of PCalc 1.2 were ten times that of PCalc 1.1 – which was arguably a bigger deal in terms of new features than the admittedly cool additions of 1.2.

So far, press coverage has still been somewhat limited despite my plea, although Mr Snell and Mr Gruber were most kind yesterday. Early days, anyway.

More analysis soon, but I’d have to conclude that getting PCalc onto the front of the Utilities section on the store was clearly very important.

  1. I notice that PCalc is not on the “business” list, where there are other calculators. Perhaps that would help.


  2. Yeah, I have wondered about that. Last time I looked, there were more calculators under “Utilities” than “Business” and Apple stopped allowing us to select a second category quite soon after the store launched.

    What we really need is a “Calculators” category to be honest.
