$66K in profit with a timer?

We just interviewed Philip, a designer from Jakarta Indonesia, who launched his productivity app Session and already reached $5.8K MRR (monthly revenue).

It's a rather simple app - but I think that's why it works. It doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, but rather assists users to achieve productivity with a known and proven method: the Pomodoro technique.

So - how did Philip achieve such impressive MRR? Partnerships. He partnered with a Netflix-for-apps service and that 10x'd his revenue.

We have interviewed over 250 profitable software companies and apps, here are just a few amazing ones:

  • Preetam built a $30k/month Whatsapp plugin (link)
  • Alex shares how he built #1 Catholic app on App Store (link)
  • $10k/month online solitaire app (link)
  • $75k/month audio sharing app (link)
