How many times can I check my review status in 24 hours?

My first proper GameSalad game 'Quake Builder' was submitted to the app store a week ago today. It's taken over 3 months to make, and I'm going slightly insane checking my email every minute to see if apple have emailed an 'App approved' email.

It changed to 'In review' last night and since then I've been pressing my yahoo email tab sooo much...

anyway...fingers crossed it passes with flying colours.

The release date is set for Friday.

    just an example

    After sitting in "waiting for review" for 3 days i had two apps move into "in review" within an hour of each other.

    One was approved in about an hour the other took another 5 days!

    Both were iphone apps and non updates

    Ipad apps are goign faster it seems....but, its so random

    There are so many posts and theories on how long it takes and why but no one knows.

    Ive had three things approved almost at the same time on a friday... realized i messed up one thing, resubmitted the update and it was live within an hour.
    Its almost as if the supervisor said "just push em through its the weekend and i wanna get outta here on time"

    I was the same way with my first app... it took 8 days and i was sure they lost the binary lol

    Grats Draper -- i think you'll do well with QB..

    I submitted my app last thursday and this morning around 10am est. it went into review..
    been waiting all day to see it change hoping it gets approved. I have it set to release today..
    Game's name starts with a B.. just a simple little game to get use to GS...
    but you think i should change it to release on Friday ?
    not sure how the whole thing goes like when you're app is released it shows up on a New Games section for awhile?? is their a particular day of the week that starts a whole new list of new apps or something and every week it refreshes with new ones?
