iTunes Connect is back, how did Christmas go?

Ramps did surprisingly well considering our ill-time launch coincided with numerous other titles, which resulted in us getting zero press coverage.

We were able to sell over 200 copies between 12/25 and 12/26 despite some criticism for our $2.99 price point (and the fact that we were basically buried).

How did everyone else do? Did you guys all see a sales spike over the holiday break as well? How dramatic was it?

RAMPS!! Previously iPhone Game of the Week on the App Store.

Just checked my downloads for Rollatron. About 300-400 downloads over the break.

Of course it's just a free demo right now.

I have 2 IPAD games (check my sig). They were priced at $1.99 but I decided to move them up to $2.99. I'm pleased to see that I had a huge bump in sales during the xmass period. I though it was impossible to compete with all the great $0.99 sales games. I'm glad I made that move.

I got a 4X boost on X-mas day, and have settled to about 2X normal ever since. My ranking hasn't really changed (#38 in Racing as of this moment). Daredevil Dave has been in the top 35 or so in Racing for almost 8 months.
