    I'm just wondering, how much of a cut does the developer get per sale, and how much does Apple get? Also, how much gets taken in tax?

    Apple: 30%, developer: 70%.

    I don't know about taxes.

    Don't you need to pay like $90 to become a developer or something?
    And then after that Apple takes 30% of your earnings.

    From USD revenues Apple takes 30% and a developer gets 70%.
    From EURO revenues a developer gets a bit less, EURO prices do not convert directly (according to exchange rates), some deductions seem to occur.

    Apple takes it's 30% from REVENUE.

    PROFIT is only achieved when you break even (revenue equals costs) so will vary by app.
