While has only been available in the App Store for 66 days in 2015, and I also wanted to share what we’ve accomplished so far with our vision of re-imagining mobile productivity with Git.

Git2Go is a free app and contains 3 different in-app purchases:

  • Git2Go Private: Clone and edit your private GitHub, Bitbucket and gitlab.com repositories for $9,99.
  • Git2Go Unlimited: Clone and edit your private GitHub, Bitbucket and gitlab.com repositories as well as GitHub Enterprise and GitLab CE/EE for $14,99.
  • Git2Go Unlimited — Upgrade: Upgrade from the ‘Git2Go Private’ IAP for additional GitHub Enterprise and GitLab CE/EE access for $4,99.

We do this mainly to get the conversation about indie development apps and their sales numbers in the App Store going. We also hope to see a couple of sharing their numbers for 2015 as well.

  • 596 total Commits performed
  • 62 daily active users on average
  • ~100 Daily Active Users on average (without launch week and update days)
  • ~550 Weekly Active Users on average (without launch week)
  • 2 received support mails…and roughly 100 requests coming in via our integration

Our expenses

  • Private GitHub Account Piet: $18 per month
  • Private GitHub Account Tim: $7 per month

Summary

Looking back, it was the absolute right decision to launch with a reduced set of services and to add Bitbucket & GitLab over time. Since the introduction of our higher tier IAP options, we’ve also been able to make more money with the (quite steady) amount of daily IAP performed by our users.

While we got some neat coverage from German and international blogs out there, we still think that hasn’t been noticed by all the people who would love to use it out there. That’s why we’re currently looking for conferences/talks/meetups/fireside chats etc. to talk about . So, if you know of an event like that or even host one, feel free to hit us up or .

We can’t wait to rock the App Store in 2016 with your help and would like to use the chance to thank all of you out there who believe(d) in us, use Git2Go and provide valuable feedback. ❤
