Look at this gay and that video below https://www.facebook.com/treyofficial?fref=nf

Seems like every game that rising high apps throws up to the market it gets featured by Apple! Its not funny they don't use a single line of code, the use dropbox! I think the market is changing fast. Soon every person could make games, you don't need coding, marketing skills  or whatever skills related to indie development.
Anyone used build box???

I get spam email for buildbox almost every day. The deveoper has made lots of money on his IOS apps, but I think he's making more from his app development software.

Just go higher quality, devlopers using stuff like bulidbox are always limited to the tool´s limits and can never reach the quality that you can reach with an normal coding enigne like Unity...

as a Unity3D dev I must say I love Unity - for my own apps I use the free version, and, apart from the unity splash screen at the beginning, it does everything I want. In terms of effort needed to create stuff, it's amazing!

One of the latest Ketchapp's games (Ball jump) is made with this, so i've read..
I download the software, seems pretty cheap, and not intuitive at all. I can tell if you can do much with it..and the price 99$ a month? Really?
Stencyl is 200$ a year 
Gamesalad is 29$ a month or 300$ a year i guess. And those are pretty cool non programming tools with years of improvements.

I'll take a look more deeply into it and come back with a review.

Well it looks like they pay for this! Or the have someone inside i will look forward to send a mail to Apple and maybe they can explain how a game can be featured even if it not apply there "how to get featured" standards and guidelines! I rip my ass of to do 20 localized screenshots and they put f... 5 sprites in a game and get featured every time????

This is the new system where they hired editors to choose games so they removed the New Games category in all sections.

As for weak ass games being featured I've seen games with 2 screenshots being featured as well as that Bouncy Ball gamesalad template that got featured from 2 different developers with the exact same template LOL [smile] and its just a ball that bounces [smile]

I think they do this with simple games because the only way to make money on them is to go viral. They have pretty much 0 retention and wouldnt rank unless featured.
