Saulius Dailide, Pixelmator, co-developer wrote on the company’s blog that he was “ecstatic” and noted the apps high ratings in the US, UK and German App Stores. “Such an amazing success feels fantastic. Thank you so much for your enthusiastic support.”
Currently, Pixelmator is the fourth highest grossing title in the Mac App Store, behind Aperture, iPhoto, and Pages, which are all Apple products. The developers decided to distribute its app exclusively via the new Mac App Store and slashed the price from $59.99 to $29.99. The limited time offer, which includes 2 free upgrades was done in part to encourage users to repurchase the app on the Mac App Store.
