The Little App That Could

Matt Rix:

In my mind, there were two things that could happen to help Trainyard be successful. One was to be featured on the App Store, and the other was to be mentioned on TouchArcade. Sadly, Trainyard was never mentioned on TouchArcade. I figured they didn't think it would appeal to their target demographic, so I forced myself to move on. I also believed (and still believe) that Apple monitors TouchArcade much more than any other site when deciding which games to feature, so that made not being mentioned an even harder pill to swallow.
