Getting On the New List

So, has anyone figured out on how to get their games and apps on the App Store's "New" list under the "Featured" tab. I'm assuming that Apple hand-picks these apps because most of the same exact apps are in the "New" "What's Hot" and Top "Paid/Free" which really take away from the amount of apps that get exposure. There are a few apps out there on the New list that have relatively low amounts of reviews in the US store, and were as recently admited as the beginning of March.

Getting on any of the "Lists" takes Magic as far as I can tell.

They are hand picked I believe, you just got to get noticed by someone at apple. So get your game out there and keep pushing it, doing updates and keeping it fresh.

But seriously it's Magic.

Heheh, my thoughts exactly... Hopefully my barrage of updates will do some justice which this next one should.
