Finally released my first App

I finally released my first iPhone app, Repetitions, today. It’s going to be very interesting to see how it does. After reading about how other apps have done I’m not very optimistic, especially since the release date of my app was set to 25 August (when it was accepted by Apple) instead of today when it was actually released. Which of course means my app now appears on page 6 of the “Health and Fitness” category in the AppStore. Where no one will find it. But I will be releasing an update soon anyway, which should put it on the first page at least for a couple of days.

  1. Did you modify the release date in Pricing Tab of iTunes Connect for your App?

    If not then do so next time you release an update and you’ll be in the New Releases list.

    In fact it may not be too late for this release….well worth doing

    • Tried it. No luck.
      After all the weird things I’ve heard about the AppStore, I should have known I shouldn’t take anything for granted. But I will definitely remember this for the next update.

  2. When you get the e-mail from Apple stating that your application is ready for sale, you should immediately change the “release date” to the current date.

    Don’t change it to a future date when you upload your next update, otherwise your app will no longer appear in iTunes for sale at all until that date arrives.

    I think each and every developer had to learn how this works with their first app.
