"Mr. Grimes now works as an app developer for ELC Technologies, an Oregon company that allowed him to stay in Baltimore. Ms. Grimes is still working on Campfire Apps.

While Mr. Grimes was angry at Legg Mason for laying him off, Apple delivered little — but it also made no promises. “People used to expect companies to take care of them,” he said. “Now you’re in charge of your own destiny, for better or worse.”

The Grimeses’ quest cost them more than $200,000 in lost income and savings. So far this year, their eight apps have earned $4,964. When the newest iPhone came out at the end of September, the couple immediately bought two."

I love how many Apple products they have, lol.

Steven P was right - they sold more iPhones.

The article makes a really good point. It's really hard making money making apps.
