Fat Guy walking a TightWire - There's an app for that!

Hello - My friend and I recently graduated from college and decided to pursue a career out of making iPhone applications. It has quickly turned from an interest to a passion.

We recently launched our first application, TightWire, which we are really excited about. We noticed a large spike in sales #'s for Japan. After further investigation we found to our surprise that we were the #19 downloaded app on Japan's iTunes. We are the #7 downloaded game on their app store also. We are ahead of huge named titles like Flight Control, Rope'N'Fly, and the new dig game.

Just curious if anyone has any idea on why we broke through on Japan's market, but not yet on the U.S. market. The Japanese seem to love our app, just hoping we can have the same success in the U.S.

Take a look at the app when you get a chance!!
