Default Best day to release a game on IOS

Hi,

I'm getting conflicting information about what is the best day to release an IOS game.

Some say Wednesday, others Thursday and some saying Sunday.

Opinions?

Thanks!

The Wednesday/Thursday thing is confusing... Because a when a game comes out on a Thursday it actually comes out on Wednesday (late in the evening)! So... I think the people who say it should come out on Wednesday and the people who say it should come out on Thursday are actually talking about the same day.

If you look all the big game nights are always late Weds night. Essentially Thursday 00.00am.

Thats easily the best time

I've release apps on a few different days and my best experience was with a Thursday Launch and worst with a Monday. Take from that what you will.

Surely launching the same time as everyone else is a bad idea? Wouldn't it be better to be more easily found?

I kind of feel this too, but I don't have any hard figures. Surely going up against big releases decreases your chance of interest and the new apps boost lasts the same length of time no matter when you release.

For someone small this is probably overated.
