How long should this take?

I've been in the "Waiting for Review" stage for about 7 days... and almost jumped for joy when I got a push notification through iTunes Connect Mobile saying the status changed to "In Review". It has been "In Review" for 3 hours now, no changes. How long will it take (approx.) to get accepted or rejected? (Hopefully accepted xD)
Thanks GS.

    I've had a "in review" take as little as 30 minutes, and as long as 3 days.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?

    Alright. Just passed the 4 hour mark :)
    Now to play the waiting game.

    My app has now been in review for 3 days (this was on the back of it being rejected and then me resubmitting it - so I don't know if this makes a difference). Let us know when you get accepted, its interesting to know ho long these things take.

    For me it took about 6-8 hours. The part that takes the longest for me is waiting for review. If you don't get rejected it will be out by the end of the day most likely.

    As far as I know, if you have an app rejected, and then resubmit, it will enter "in review". However, this stage, while called "in review" is essentially the same as "waiting for review" (because of the nature of the reject/resubmit). So, I'd guess it will sit at "in review" for about a week.

    Waiting for review and in review are 2 differnt things. While its waiting for review its on the list of submissions waiting for a reviewer to get it to. When its in review thats when someone at apple is actually sitting down and playing it and all that

    It seems like it usually take around 7-10 days for my games to go through review. I have heard that this is normal. There is a queue that you have to wait in. For example if you reject your app binary, you get put at the end of the queue.

    Ok, well to clarify.

    My game was rejected after 8 days total.

    I resubmitted the amended app. It uploaded and changed back to 'Waiting for Review', the after only a few minutes it changed to 'In Review'.

    Its now been 'In Review' for 3 days.

    So basically do you guys think its the same as 'Waiting for Review', but just named differently because of the fact that I had to resubmit it?
