Android app brings in $13K a month

Mobile app developer Edward Kim is now bringing in more than $400 a day from sales of his "Car Locator" application written for the Android mobile platform. Harking back to the early days of the iPhone app store, earnings of $13,000 a month isn't bad for an application that remembers where you parked your car.

The app works by simply recording your GPS location when you park, alerting you when your meter is about to run out, and guiding you back to where you left the car. We haven't established how well it will work in your local 10 story car park though.

The full version currently retails for $3.99, with the free version having been downloaded some 70,000 times via the Android Marketplace.
