iPhone Economy app now the #1 paid app in the Finance category

July 30, 2009

Terrific news tonight (Thursday, 7/30), our iPhone Economy app is now the #1 paid app in the “Finance” category. This is a remarkable achivement for the app and I’d like to thank all users who’ve tried out the app and helped make this a popular app.

The iPhone Economy app was released on July 4 and it got to the 4th place (in “Finance” ) within a week after release. We have received a number of emails from users and most of them said they loved the app. Many (though not all) feature requests/suggestions from our users will be implemented in our 1.1 release. The 1.1 version is due to be released in the first half of August.

http://CascadeSoft.net/Economy.aspx has more details on the app and the app can be downloaded from the app store.

Incidentally, the iPhone Economy app is the 4th app from Cascade Software Corporation.

It is also the second #1 app from Cascade Software Corporation. Last year, our first app (the iPhone Election app) was – at one time – the #1 paid app in the “News” category.
