Hi forum members,
I've just submitted my first app to iTunes. It's a board game called Scupper...hope some of you look out for it when its approved. Would love some feedback.
On the subject of approval does anyone know how long Apple take these days?

    right now its rather quick. Around 3-4 days total. and i submitted a update 2 days ago and was approved this morning. Now its not always this fast, you said "these days though" :)

    why do people ask that question WITHOUT searching google first??

    Hi John. Thanks for your reply. Its been 2 days and still 'waiting for review' but here's hoping it won't take long.

    xylo -- I DID of course google it first but there were so many different answers ranging from days to weeks and I couldn't find any recent answers so naturally thought I'd ask here!

    Hey figulla,
    As a rule of thumb, prepare for about 8 - 10 days which go by too fast because now, you have to prepare your web page, start writing a press release and contact everybody you know and even people you don't know to tell them about your soon to come app.

    On my last releae, I have held the submission back by an extra two days just so that I could update my web sie and prepare a few other things.

    Just uploading an app and hope for downloads to happen is no longer a winning strategy :-)

    But you knew that already ...

    P.s. The question seems to get asked every day on here

    App 1: Waiting for review for 6 days
    App 2: Waiting for review for 4 days
