If We Believe in Equal Distribution of Wealth Then iPhone Apps Are Failed Model

From an article with catch title, Are iPhone Apps a Failed Model, that I read:

2H 2010: total Apple App Store Sales in the second half $858 million; annual sales calendar 2010 $1.4 billion

With 225,000 Apps developers the per app developer the payment comes around 6.5K which is a very small amount to make a business out of it. 

However, not all apps developers get paid or depend on paid App. There are four additional monetization models:

1. Ad Revenue: Many games and entertainment apps depend of ad revenue

2. Transaction Revenue: Apps like myBantu depends on transactions to make money

3. Virtual goods: Games and other apps use virtual products to make money

4. Client Apps: Client Apps like enterprise Apps are just access but the money is paid to the enterprise licenses.
