The Auto-Fill Thread

Just though i'd start a thread to anounce things in the auto-fill on devices, which means imminent release!!!

I just checked Zen Bound, Sway & Hill Billy...Nothing yet.

Has anyone seen anything interesting or have a game in mind they want checked?

Post it here...

When you go to search, say, on an iphone's app store, you start typing the app you are looking for. You only need to type the first 3 letters, and it will automatically fill in the app's that match.

I've found that items already released and available don't show up in the auto-fill right away. What's the point of this thread? Just asking cause I don't know.

Are you saying games not in the store show up there first? If so, I wasn't aware that happened.

Games that have been approved show up in the auto-fill, generally before they hit the app store.

The purpose of this thread is to just simply let others know that there long awaited games automatically populated in the search engine, meaning they will hit the app store shortly.
