Voices, 24 Hours In

In less than 24 hours, Voices has skyrocketed to (as of writing) number 16 in the Top 100 paid apps. It has even broke the App Store by it’s amazing climb. A lot of the credit has to go down to the fabled MacHeist effect, but we’ve also had some great press attention since launch. We like to think it’s a damn nifty app too!

Note above how Voices is both number 16 and 28. It seems we either have an impersonator or our very own App Store shadow. Either way, amazing!

    Congratulations for a job well done! When I first saw the app on TUAW I knew this was going to be a smash hit. As an app developer I’ve been studying how to make and market hit-based iPhone apps and I think Voices provides an excellent case study. Thought it was worthwhile enough to blog/videocast about: http://tapity.com/iphone-app-marketing/video-voices-released-app-developers-get-out-your-notepads/

    Let me know if you have anything to add or any lessons learned from the launch.

    Congrats on the great launch. I remember when the Mac app first launched. I think my little boys (3 and 5) are going to love this app.

    [...] Voice morphing is becoming increasingly popular on the iPhone and iPod touch. With the built in microphone of the iPhone, IPhone 3G and 3GS, and now the iPod touch supporting mic input, developers are realizing there’s actually a market for mic-based applications. Yesterday, iPhone development studio Taptivate showed their hand with Voices. It wasn’t the normal app launch though, no, no. Far from it. The studio had partnered with both TapTapTap as their publisher, and MacHeist. Through something coined as a ‘tweet blast,’ Taptivate managed to create a huge buzz around Voices, and it’s currently sitting at number 14 in the iTunes Top Paid Apps chart after just 24 hours.
