    couple of questions.
    1. Will these threads ever be posted on the date referred to in the title?
    2. Will the apps always be for the USA only, as this blog is strangely popular worldwide.

    • I’m not sure where you are in the world but these posts are published at the date showed in the headline, which is always the date here in the US.

      iDB is a US-based website, and our large majority of visitors are from the US. I understand it can be frustrated for you to see deals here that might not be available to you, but couldn’t possible cater to every local App Store. Hope you understand.

        ah ok, well atleast that clears that up, i was mistakenly under the belief that idb was not us-centric, my bad & conspiracy theories regards GMT’ers being teased dismissed lol thx.
