Thank you!

Thank you very much for sharing that, I think it will take quite a while to get through all that reading The first link to the AppVee article on sales figures was very interesting, so I'm off to a great start!

"Sales to date (6 March to 27 April): over 700,000
Total sales per country (57% of sales in USA)
Peak sales days (over 35,000 sold on best day) and sales trends over time"

"Looks like sales of Car Jack Streets are less than a THIRD of total users."
