Your app, featured in the Store, WOW!

The first week of March, one of my Windows 8 apps got featured in the Dutch Windows 8 Store. There are a lot of things you can do to increase the amount of downloads your app is getting, but getting featured helps a lot. Normally the app get’s about 10 to 15 downloads a day, during the featured period it was around 110 each day (178 on March 3rd).



Of course the “how to get featured” is a big secret. We do know, not providing the promotional art during the submission process will not help your app getting featured.

If you have any tips, please share them in the comments.
