I was told by a dev 2 years ago to avoid switching my accounts with Apple, as it was a mess for him as well. Thanks for the thread...I'd love to switch them out but, no way.

Thanks Hercule!

Yep, understandable developers being cautious about it. Can't blame you. Wish I had known, could have saved myself the heart-ache and lost sales.

Oh man... I actually felt it in my heart when I read your story!! MAN!!!
I'd die if that happen to me really... thanks for a heads up...

This down thing happened to me before... I got an app featured
but I was really new in the business (read: noob) and I didn't change
the app price to 99cent and that time there was no iAd. And I kinda
scared if I change the price, APple would remove me from the New & Noteworthy.
Could've made big bucks... but no.. sucks..

Reminds all of us to be extra careful of what we do with our apps. One
wrong move, and big bucks are missed.

Retro Racing surely deserve to be featured by Apple as a "sorry we didn't warned you about that earlier" gesture.

Nuff said.

I really hope Apple give some kind of good will gesture in the form of a feature or the like, but honestly, chances are that they wont. You have to wonder though; how many times has this happened to other developers?

Thanks for the notice. At least, some people get to know your app from it

How heartbreaking to read this!

So glad Retro Racing was featured, it was the least they could do after all!

What? I find it quite the contrary personally! Reviewed by The Sun newspaper, a few grand per day for half of 1 day would do me lol. When I released my first app, it showed on the store with a black icon, it fell down the chart like a rock. I couldn't get the time of day yet alone a feature lol...Yeah this result is heart *warming* and gave me the faith to even get out of bed.

Hi Chaps,

Sure, it's kinda heart-breaking, but you can't dwell on that stuff, gotta keep going forward.

Anyhow, as you may have noticed, Retro Racing was featured on the AppStore last week, in the UK; so quite happy about that.

If you haven't checked the game out yet, here's some codes...

Have fun guys!!
