New and Noteworthy

Our first game iNetMania, just got onto the New and Noteworthy section on iTunes and Featured area of the iPhone. I will see how it does for sales and report back into this thread for any who are curious.

First day of New and Noteworthy (page 2 of N&N), went from about 6 sales a day to 90. Also hit 45 on top 100 board games list.

Congratulations! Also this may be a stupid question, but how did you find out? Do you just check the featured sections routinely, or did Apple send you an email saying "Hey, FYI, we featured your app"?

Well, we have a relationship that ties us directly to it. So we were told a day before it happened. If you are looking to get together with a publisher that can help you get New and Noteworthy we may be able to help Feel free to PM me.

I can tell you that it happens on a Tuesday and usually at 8AM PST
