Default When does Apple update New and Noteworthy?

I've seen people say Tuesday and Thursdays.

Does anyone know the correct day/time?

Thanks,

Trey

if it's Thursday, when is the best day to launch so that it gets featured on Thursday? Some say Wednesday.

Best night to release is Wednesday night 12am..technically thursday I guess.

And the new and noteworthy list is updated Friday morning..
I always check friday morning to see what's been featured.

Snozberry, where are you exactly?

I hear in China it's updated on Friday, and Thursday in U.S. But with a 10+ time difference between Beijing and U.S west coast, I suspect they are actually the same time.

Later in the day on Thursday in the US.

But that chart that was posted makes me wonder - more games in the Top 240 were released on a Sunday. And not every game in the New and Noteworthy was released that Wed/Thurs - many were released earlier in the week.

This week's for instance MIB3 and Cuboid Free and Oh Cube were released nearly a week prior. Some of the games are only updates from the day or two before and in one case 8 days before (in other words not new but certainly noteworthy).

I think there is much more to it than just day of the week it is released.

I was thinking the same thing. A lot of people are saying Thursday is the best, but then there is that study that showed Sunday is actually better. But I do agree, I think there is more to it then just day for the release.
