Thank you and site comments for Arn

Hi all,

I discovered the site recently and it is quickly becoming a daily stop, so I registered for the forums today. I mainly wanted to say thank you--it's a great looking site and I've found it really useful so far. I do have a few suggestions/questions if you're interested.

I love the ability to see the newest changes to the app store. Heck, I picked up Hexxagon Labs this morning (which looks quite good, btw) and I never would have known about it otherwise, and also took advantage of the price drop on the Pangea games. I'm hoping it might be possible to consider fleshing this out in a couple of ways. First, I'd really like to be able to go back through prior entries, but I haven't seen a way to do this. There are so many new titles coming out that it's tough to keep up with them all. I was also wondering (though this is less important, I think) if it might be possible to separate out price drops from new titles.

I was also surprised to see that there's no way to search for games by their rating on the app store. I assume this has been discussed previously, but a quick forum search didn't turn up anything, so I thought I'd mention it. I think this would be handy, even if those ratings may not be the most reliable in the world.

Thanks again to Arn et al. I look forward to spending more time on the site and in the forums.

Welcome to TouchArcade!

You'll find that not all members are as friendly as the majority wants, but if you search before posting a new topic you should be fine.

Please stick around and join the discussions about games you like to play!

While this site provides great game reviews, you might also want to check out appvee.com for reviews of applications. Price drops, new games, and updates cAn all be found at appshopper.com. You can sort by genre and what you wanna see ( price drop, new, update), and it'll also show you any price changes or updates to an application. Also check out AppSniper in the app store, so you can build your wishlist and easily keep track of it. I sometimes see a game I'd like and forget it's name, and lose it in the 15000 apps.

Hi,

Thanks for the comments. The price drops and new games are a convenience for TouchArcade visitors. For more detailed breakdown, I'd suggest going to

http://appshopper.com

You can go back further and filter by price or new. In the future you should be able to search by ratings and what not.

Yes. Welcome. This is how a new member SHOULD come in. But most just start by not using search, and making the 20th Super Monkey Ball thread.

Welcome to the forums, it's great to see new people who don't just barge in and expect to run the site. It's nice to see someone come in with some manners and thank the people that keep up this site (Arn, Blake, wastedyuthe, salasmd, (any other mods that I forget ) This really is an awesome site to keep in the loop of iPhone and iPod touch gaming just because, who knows what consumers want other than actual consumers? The forums are great so have some fun in them!

Welcome

I thought I'd add my voice and say hello and welcome! This is a great site for keeping up to date and for getting feedback from other "real" users of games and apps. So welcome and I look forward to seeing you in the forums!
