    @Machine Rises Lucky you, I'm jealous :rolleyes: How many downloads do you have now? I'm sure you'll hit a million downloads soon with all this features and trending. Will you or are you already making 4 figures a day?

    @trygii I have no idea haha. I'm just working on promoting the game I have no idea on downloads or revenue. I just can't believe the game has gone nuts like this in TWO DAYS. Check this out. Top Game World Wide:

    It took me 2.5 years to get here though seriously. It's a long hard road but if you stick with it it almost feels like something happens over night when it does happen.

    You have now 25,000 users registered in game center. At this stage this is x2 which is equal to 50,000 (give or take), the result of all your downloads in two days. Impressive. The baby video is making your game viral. And yes, the game is great, I keep coming back to play for a few minutes. Don't like the ads thoug. haha. And you didn't put an option to remove them for a price. Shame on you.

    What ad network did you choose at the end? Is it Heyzap Mediation you are using?

    @Christoph . Could not get Heyzap Mediation working in time for launch so we have Admob and iAds. Ad strategy is not very good but at lease they are in there. Big learning experience for sure.

    Now, could you notice that any of old games appears as new games, even if it is just an update?
    So by my simple logic, I think old games that never get Featured before,
    will have a chance to get feature as well as the new ones.

    yeah actually Fortafy himself added me as a FB friend and we just had a good private conversation about games and all lol. This was before i realised that he doesn't really handle the publishing side but more the promotion which i think is doing great job with your game everywhere :) he offered me to cc in my contacts to the Eyebox Games though which was nice of him.

    Well we are holding steady at 32 top free games and 127 global in US. I was thinking maybe we could get a feature. If anyone knows a good way to go about this could you PM me?

    My guess would be that finding an email for the App Store Feature team and emailing them a brief pitch and brief ask for consideration for a feature would do it, but then again I currently have zero experience with this. Also, presumably this should be done by the account holder through which the game was published?

    Yeah that's probably a good idea since it's not in my name. Hey can't hurt to directly email!

    should probably mention that fact that it was trending, as well as how it has climbed the charts so far
    that might be sufficient enough of a pitch of its value. then move to the brief ask for consideration. that is what I would do, but again I may not be the most knowledgeable about this as I have not published a game yet

    I think @dan_counsell has mentioned the email is floating around somewhere. I couldn't find it. Would like to know it too.

    After attending WWDC15, I was able to meet many of the reviewers who work on featuring apps within the App Store. You can get in contact with them by emailing appstorepromotion@apple.com
    Good luck! Really great app @Machine Rises
