College Sophomore Sells His iPhone App To Flixster (August 26, 2008 TechCrunch)

Movie focused social network Flixster acquired a popular iPhone application called Movies.app (iTunes link ) last week, and has re-released the application this evening. As far as we know, this is the first acquisition of an iPhone app. The price isn’t being disclosed.
Movies.app was created by Jeffrey Grossman, a sophomore at Carnegie Mellon University. The application lets users find show times, watch trailers and get maps to local theaters and has been downloaded 250,000 times. Flixster has updated the app to give users full access to their database of 70,000 movies, so users will be able to look up older titles while at Blockbuster, etc. In the next version users will also be able to link their Flixter accounts to the application.

The number of cases where the application of iPhone is purchased like this will increase in the future.

It is because of becoming a certain property if the application is popular.

The manufacturer of a lot of applications will make the application with iPhone, and the enterprise is sure to become frantic with a good application search in the future, too.
