Default How To Get Into The New & Noteworthy?

Hi fellow developers,

I wrote another article, this time about New and Noteworthy feature by Apple. Read explanation of how exactly this listing works, how many actual App Stores are out there and what you can do to get a feature from Apple.

This article is entirely in line with our experience (having been featured many, many times), so makes for great advice in my opinion.

Thanks for the article.

Does anyone know any good forums to introduce our games apart from Touch Arcade? From what I have seen, most places won't allow self-promotion.

The best and only place for iOS gaming is Touch Arcade so far, you won't find the second one I think.

Default Featured Success!

Great article thanks for posting it. We have had some success getting featured by apple in the main banners and in the new and note worthy.

It depends on the category but it looks like they base their decisions on download numbers and climbing numbers. We have found that as soon as you hit the top 25 overall in any country they request artwork. Then depending on how the app holds over the following week you get featured. No guarantees though it depends what else is on offer at the time, and how they are feeling.

Getting featured dramatically helped our sales that week and for the following week with Drop The Chicken. With the increased sales our app now holds about 10-20 position higher than it did before.

Hope this helps.

There's plenty of them that allow self promotion actually. Here's a few big fish to fry

MacRumors
TouchArcade
Game Zebo
Pocket Gamer
Slide to Play

There's maybe 20 more, but most of them are smaller. Do your homework, read their rules (many don't allow self promotion) and be active in their communities if you want to be noticed.
