What’s Going on With Ranks?

Earlier this morning we discovered that the feed we use to track app store ranks has been modified by Apple just slightly but enough to confuse our ranks updater. Due to this “fun” fact ranks have been MIA since last night at 9pm est.

We’ve reworked our ranks updater to understand the updated format and rolled out the update at 7am est. Ranks for 7am are available now.

    HI, My App ITGO – Interval Trainer GO has been featured as an Apple Staff Favourite this week so I've been watching my ranking harder than a screen shot of Megan Fox.

    Anyway, could we also have Top Grossing App Rank as well?

    Thanks

    We do track the Top Grossing category in all app stores. When your app makes it there we'll show it.

  • My app Vanity jumped from #58 in photography to #8 for a few hours then dissappeared completely off the charts and now has returned to #51, but when I look in the app store on my iPhone it's nowhere to be found. What's going on with Apple?

    Thats a good question… Though it is possible that your iPhone is showing cached data. It happens all the time.
