I was an indie developer from 2009 to 2013. I made three apps that got me about $5000 in revenue. I don’t know how much per hour this represents. I loved this time of my life where after a long work day I would sit in front of my Mac to learn Obj-C, Interface Builder, etc. until later in the night. Now, I can really appreciate what it is like to build apps and let the world know about them. Expressing Gratitude to Developers
