I am a Tokens fan. Developed by Oisin Prendiville and Padraig Kennedy, Tokens enables you to distribute and track app codes with a beautiful click-to-redeem experience. It’s professional and clean for both you and the reviewers you send the codes to.
Now Supertop, the makers of Tokens, have launched Top Hat. This “sibling” app offers quick access to sales figures via your Mac menu bar. Click on the little hat and view your top downloads and revenues for the day. Top Hat provides instant gratification, with both its immediate overview (as in the screenshot at the top of this write-up) and live links to your iTunes account.
My only complaint is its iOS-only support. My #3 seller is actually a Mac app: the folderol utility that customizes folder icons. With my recent press push (if you want to review it for your blog, please ping me by email!), I am monitoring sales a little more intently than usual. I could not find an option anywhere to enable Mac app stats in the top downloads/revenues list, which lowers the usefulness as I do develop for and monitor both platforms.
The app costs $9, which you commit to after a free 7-day trial. For the price of a couple of beers you get a well designed app by a company that’s built its reputation on solid, well-maintained titles. (And hopefully, one that will soon support OS X reporting as well as iOS. Hint hint hint.)
Top Hat, $9.
Update: The developers sent me a beta that includes Mac support. I’ve run it and can confirm the OS X / iOS joint reporting functionality. They promise they will push this release out quickly.
