App Store Review Times

battleduckbattleduck Member Posts: 105
I submitted the ipad & iphone versions of my upcoming game BANGBox!, back on the 14th feb, and both are still waiting for review!
I this a normal time frame? I have read before that it takes around 1-2weeks to get approved / rejected, but always assumed the bulk of this time was taken up whilst "In Review" not waiting in a cue to be seen by the apple guys.

Has anyone else recently published things to the app store, what kind of time frame can i expect?

I hate to seem impatient but am anxious to get my game out there after all the hard work thats gone into it!

Many thanks

    I sent my update yesterday, now it is available in the App Store.

    For a new game, I wait 7 days max now. I have no idea if this is somehow linked with sales of your apps, but when I started making games, I waited two weeks, or even more.

    I submitted my iphone app on the 18th feb and it was ready for sale on 23rd.

    First off it depends if it is an update or the first time you have submitted your game in. If it is the first time your game has been submitted (i.e. not an update) then it usually takes around a week maybe a few days extra from the day you submit for it to go "In Review"

    Once In Review it can be done that same day or in as much as a few weeks. It depends on how long they take to review it. Keep in mind, in my opinion it is possible to get reviewers that love being d***s and they sometimes put yours off to the side or just reject it (sometimes for stupid reasons).

    In either case good luck.

    Apple post the current amount of time it takes to review apps and I found it to be accurate. I've never had review issues and it doesn't matter if it's an update or a new app they all go in order of submission. @manto1 that makes scence as the current review time is five days.

    Thanks for the speedy replies, looks like im just part of the unlucky 3% of new ios games not reviewed in the last 5 days.
