Original 'iBeer' iPhone app made creators $20,000 a day

An early app that made the iPhone look like you could pour beer from it, proved to be immensely lucrative — but the stress of mass popularity forced its magician creator to walk away.

It was a simpler time when the App Store opened in 2008. But while most novelty apps like fart noise ones faded away quickly, "iBeer" lasted much longer.According to a new Mel magazine interview with its magician creator, it also began long before the invention of the App Store.
