Featured in App Store "Apps We Love Right Now"

Was browsing through App Store Connect trying to publish a new version about 10 days ago, and noticed this new section called "Promotional Artwork". Confused. Went to the inbox searching for emails from App Store, and saw this email with subject "Your app, ZenJournal: Minimalist Diary, may be featured on the App Store." filtered with the Unimportant emails from 5 days ago. 😂 And I have two days until the deadline to submit some artwork for a possible feature on the App Store. Frantically downloaded Photoshop trial and submitted something before the day and got an approval email during the day. And then waited for a week with nothing....

Until two days ago, saw a spike of impressions of 35k per day since 4 days ago. Couldn't figure out why cos the app is still not featured with artwork... Thought it is my keyword change with last release. Until last night, when scrolling through the "Apps We Love Right Now" section and found my app...

Anyway, it's not prominently featured in Today or top of the page, it's not even the first scroll of the section, but can't argue with 100+ per day of downloads over the last 4 days. Thankful for that one editor who discovered ZenJournal and fight for it with their editorial group. Hopefully it will eventually come back with a feature that will actually use the submitted artworks.
