    Hey dudes,

    In case you don't dip into the site news and feedback forum very often, last week I posted a nifty utility I made that should make posting NZ game threads way easier.

    Here's the direct link: http://elihodapp.com/thread-o-matic/

    Feed it an iTunes link, it'll generate all the content for a NZ early game release thread. As far as where to find the NZ game releases if you're up at around 6:00 AM US time in the morning, the easiest way is to keep an eye on this RSS feed- http://itunes.apple.com/nz/rss/newapplications/limit=100/xml

    Stuff will start popping up in the morning, paste the NZ iTunes link into the utility I made, copy and paste the stuff over, and blammo. Feel free to post threads for anything that looks cool.

    This thread-o-matic is causing screenshots to be cut off slightly on the right side on iPhone.

    Edit: Only this posters like killercow since his posts are shifted to right

    Ok, so after I generate the info, how do I get all of that to transfer over into the professional looking threads Eli makes?

    Without wishing to sound ungrateful, it'd be great if people can remove all this from the post once the game is out worldwide and the appinfo is working.

    Hey guys! Here is an iOS app that does exactly like the tool Eli made. I thought it would be more easier for you guys to post from iPhones or iPads, so I made one. This is my first iOS app and didn't made it too fancy but very useful. Give me your impression about this app.

    That looks great, Bhavuk. I take it a jailbreak is required to use it though?

    No jailbreak is required for this app. It works with App Store guidelines, I think. I just need a $99 license to submit it. That's a bit of a problem though.

    That's the only reason I though the jailbreak would be required - to sideload it without putting it on the App Store. I'm guessing it's a bit niche to justify the annual cost!

    Perhaps TA would publish it?!

    If TA would like to publish it, It'll be great. I just hope this app helps most of us here.

    If the app is only out in NZ, how do you see the new zealand store to get that URL? I tried to view the New Zealand store, but I think Safari just launched the US version of iTunes...

    You can load up iTunes and in the bottom right hand corner you can change the country to view NZ games etc
