app update doesn't appear on "what's new"

Postby stromer » Wed Oct 13, 2010 7:05 pm

hi,
usually, when i released an update of my app,
it again appears in the market under "new Software".

during the last two updates i noticed, that this was not the case...
did anything change about that? e.g. do i have to do some kind of special versioning or something?

those entries under "newest" always gave my apps a huge "download push" as most apps never make it into the top 50 apps...

you have to wait atleast 7 days before a new release is classed as 'just in'

Strange, my last few updates showed up only seconds after publishing the .apk file...

No. You have to wait seven days inbetween publishing for it to appear in 'just in; you can publish as often as you want.

ok,
but what would happen if i released updates every day?
would each update show up 7 days after publishing or would there never be an entry
as i didn't wait a whole week?

thanks in advance

If you publish on Monday. it will appear in 'just in'. Whatever you publish from then on won't appear in 'just in' until the following Monday. If you publish then, it will again appear in 'just in'. Every 7 days!
