updated version of an app

hi guys,

If I have a new version of my app. Is this version considered a "new app" and hence qualified for "new and noteworthy" or is it still the same app?

Second question. I hear that with a new version. Previous comments and rating will go back to zero again.

thanks

Nope, unfortunately updates dont count for anything as far as new apps lists are concerned, most app websites will not relist the updated app automatically either

Yes and no
Ratings for current version get reset to zero, but it still displays the star ratings from previous versions so not too much of an impact
