Default App Store: setting a future launch date - problems with visability?

I read, that by setting a future launch date for an app (after the app was approved by Apple) Apple put the App live on the day they asked,
but backdated it to the date it was approved, so it appeared 10 pages down on the new release list.

Had anybody had a similar experience? That Apple backdated the App to the day it was approved (which is quite bad for visability in the App Store)?

Thank you for letting us know!

This used to be a problem a few years ago but not now. You can set a future date and it be classed as a new release from the day you had set.

ThreeCubes is definitely right... haven't had an issue as long as you set a date and just let everything happen on its own!

The only problems I'm aware of that may happen is if you try to manually release the game before, or near the date that you've set... so as long as you set the release date and just let iTunes do its thing, you'll be good to go
