Flybird game now in Kids New and Noteworthy , will that boost sales?

Our game Flybird has just reached New and Noteworthy in Kids game section. In your exp does this help get a huge sales boost or a small one? If people use Mac more I figure it would , but do they buy on Mac more or actual iphone / ipod . Will this help me land a front page in future or not really?

no it will not.. see post in your other thread.. would not know what apples purpose was when they introduced sub category features, since they are absolutly pointless

Maybe it's just to make the hordes of developers feel good

You see, they really do care about us.

We were featured in new and noteworthy in the Games category, in 5 countries including US, we had a boost of 30 downloads/day, so yeah, as Mr.Ugly said , they are kind of pointless, we were also featured in subcategories, but that didn't do anything at all!First page or no page

Having my own games featured in new and note worthy sub categories a few times now in different countries....

YES IT DOES BOOST SALES.

I think it lasts about 2 weeks if I remember correctly.
Not just 1 week.
