Release Date vs Availibility Date Question
Hi everyone, I’m finishing up my first iOS game and getting ready to submit to Apple for approval. I did release a simple app a little over a year ago and I remember at that time having to set the availability date for the app back to the date Apple approved it in order to ensure showing up in the New Releases section. All the threads I've been able to find on this topic seem to be at least a year old so I'm just wondering if this is still the case. Ideally I’d like to set the availability date later than when the game is approved so I can try to coordinate PR efforts for the release, but not at the expense of missing out on being in New Releases. Is this possible or is my best bet to just set availability date to the current date as soon as the game is approved? Thanks for any help on this.
