2 games disappeared from iTunes for 1 hour.

Domino Dice and Str8ts disappeared for roughly 1 hour on iTunes today. Anyone else have this happen? We are trying to update with new releases could that have something to do with it? But both game revision still have not been approved by iTunes. Our release dates do have today's date.

If you changed the release date for the upcoming versions, it will change the release date for the current version.

Also, I don't know if time zones come into affect here (changing "today" into tomorrow).

The release date and up date scenario is a nightmare. Submit your product and when iTunes approves the game that should be your release date. That simple. Timing anything really doesn't work any ways since the approval process can be so varied.

approval =release date how simple is that? Wouldn't that work?

That's exactly how it worked about ten months ago. Apple changed it, as it caused constant fake updates. You can still rig the system, both only if you know to change your release date. I'm betting there's a large portion of new devs who don't know the trick.
