Game approved but need help - kendric - Apr 3, 2010 11:26 AM
I have never used a promo code to test an approved app before releasing it to the store. I did so with my game that just got approved(will post codes here once its out). What I noticed was when I reedem my promo code, while downloading it shows a scaled down version of the 512x512 graphic i uploaded. When the download finishes it switches to the correct icon. The 512x512 they are showing looks like crap. So the big question is, what will the app store show?
Does anyone know if this is just a promo code thing? This will be a show stopper if its not.
Thanks for anyone who can help me

When you're downloading on the phone, it uses the scaled 512 icon until it's installed. No difference whether or not you use a code.

But I'm pretty sure the App Store on the Device shows the 57x57 icon - unless they've changed that recently...
Either way I guess this is one reason why Apple recommends you make the 512x512 art and the 57x57 icon the same or reasonably similar looking.

Thanks a bunch. I feel a lot better. My small icon was not gonna look good at 512 512 so i went with something a bit bigger thats different somewhat. But should be no problem
