Default New icon sends app from #400 to #4 Overall

I'm here to share we you all our story as we can't quite believe what has happened in the past 8 days.

Trainz Driver was released in August 2012. We have been up and down the charts, and last Wednesday, we were generally ranked around 4-500 overall and Top 30-50 Simulation app.

After some success with a new icon on other stores (Android), we got the approval from Apple Jan 30 and released our new icon (only visible change to our customers).

In just 8 days we have now hit #1 Family, #3 Sim & Games and #4 Overall on the Germany store.

USA has gone from Top 50 Sim and nearly out of the Top 1000 Overall up to #11 and Top 200 Overall (and climbing).

Most of this was due to an icon change, but our 99c special has been the icing on the cakle.

I wrote a blog piece about it here which gives you charts and shows you the old and new icon etc.

Gotta love this marketplace we operate in
