One of our solitaire games tops the Apple Downloads charts.
As I mentioned in a previous post, Apple had stopped updating the pages on its Apple Downloads site back in March, so Most Popular Solitaire, our solitaire title with 30 of the most popular games, was reliably in the top 15 on the (dynamic) ‘Top Downloads’ list on the left of each page but was not listed at all on the ‘Most Popular’ pages in the ‘Games’ category. (As of this posting, Most Popular Solitaire 2.02 is #11 of all Apple downloads, including Apple’s own products.)
This morning, though, Apple finally updated the pages and Most Popular Solitaire is at the very top of all game downloads, listed as #1 on both the Games: Most popular and Cards & Puzzle: Most popular pages. Sure, this position is likely to be fleeting, especially now that new submissions are being posted again, but it feels good for the moment. Of course, some of those new submissions will be from Goodsol Development, so we will be looking to match this success and get more of our games to the top.
Thanks to Apple for finally getting this fixed.
