Should I release on wednesday or on thursday?

Everybody says that you should release on thursday. On thursday they change the new & noteworthy list.

If I release on thursday, maybe I am too late for the list change if my game gets approved too late.
If I release on wednesday, my game maybe doesn't get recognized and sinks into oblivion.

If I set the release to - let's say - friday and it gets approved on wednesday and I change the date to thursday, will it be released at 0:00 a.m. thursday or some time during the day?

Which hour do they change the N&N feature category list?

What do you think? Have you experience?

Here is a not soo good quality video about my game (better one is coming... this one is only for "internal" use)

Releasing on thursday doesnt guarentee you get on new and noteworthy. But if thats what your looking for then its best to release on wensday , that way apple has already seen your game and the reviewer who reviewed your game can recommend it for thursdays new and noteworthy list. Goodluck!!
