    Hi, is there a magic number of downloads per day for your app to be ranked in Top 5 or Top 10 or Top 20? Just trying to watch the changing numbers and not sure how Apple decides which is the top app. Does anyone know?

    Its determined by number of downloads. Apple doesn't decide the top apps, the people downloading do. Top paid apps are a few thousand a day I'd guess? Wasn't iFart selling about 13,000 a day at one point? Top free apps are 100,000 or more.

    That makes the most sense. It would be ridiculous if it was based on anything other than the download volume.
