Yoink’s Revenue a Month After Localizing

Translating your app into different languages is becoming more and more important. And articles like this one (techcrunch) seem to confirm that.

With Yoink 3.0 (mac app store, website), I localized the app into Japanese, Simplified Chinese, French, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Korean and Italian (in addition to the languages that existed from the start: English and German).
