Hi all,

Is there anyone waiting for approval at the moment? I am now 10 days into waiting and still not 'in review' yet on dynamite fish and the lite version. Anyone else suffering with a long wait?

    I've got an update that has been in review 7 days now. That's a bit longer than I'm used to in an update.

    @StusApps, when you entered the info in itunesconnect, did you also upload the binary the same day with it? Maybe it takes about 9 days after your binary is submitted and "waiting for review". I dont think the new "waiting for upload" status counts as the review process.

    I don't make the itunes connect application bits until I am ready to upload the binary. So that's 10 days since I uploaded and still 'waiting for review'

    Not to mention my game that's been referred to management. That one was 7 days waiting and is now 8 days 'in review'. But I expect that one to be slow.

    Our latest game has been in review for 8 days now. This is the longest I have had to wait.

    My game is "wainting for review" for 8 days now :(
  • StusAppsStusApps Posts: 1,352Member, PRO
    They must be busy at the moment, everyones seems a little slower. Do post in this thread if you get a change of state. Am interested in how longe it takes everyone.

    They're not even replying to emails at the moment. I used to at least get a courtesy reply a few days after I sent emails. The last 3 have gone completely unanswered.

    @stusapps, has it changed status yet?
  • aalzankiaalzanki Posts: 283Member
    My update has been approved yesterday :)

    I'm waiting on an update of Photics: Revisions. I uploaded it on August 12. I think I might have fixed the iAds issue. If not, I also added my own "house ads" system to run underneath. I made this app with Xcode. If this works out well, I might upgrade to "Pro".

    How many downloads of it have you got already? I think the effectiveness of iAds and apples want to supply them really goes on app popularity.

    It's not a lot... roughly 200-300 downloads... but it seems that something has changed with the new version. I think I was using the iAds code incorrectly. The box has to be hidden when there are no ads to be displayed... which seems to be quite often. Instead of putting the ads at the bottom, I put them at the top. I think that might have resolved the problem. It works fine in testing, so I'm waiting to see what happens when the app is published.

    your chances of seeing one in your own app is still pretty slim. Load the page about 100 times you may see one.

    We submitted last Saturday (a week ago) and went into review today 2-3 hours ago. So that seems to be 6 working days plus 3 days of weekend --> 9-10 days total.

    The same time seems to be true for our updates recently.

    Kraken Lite has been in for a few days now - was submitted on the 11th.

    ballurst lite 1.1 has been waiting for review for 8 days an has just gone into review!
  • StusAppsStusApps Posts: 1,352Member, PRO
    it's funny, everything of mine that was waiting has popped into review or approved over night. Some were waiting 11 days, others only 5. Seems like they are doing a big catch up on things.

    Weird - my Xmas 2097 *update* has been approved after only 3 days.

    Waiting on Kraken Lite now...

    10 days total from waiting for review, to accepted for Fairytale Preschool HD, longest time for awhile for approval time for an update!

    I'd (foolishly) chosen the option with the Singularity Drive: Prologue update to release at a time of my choosing.

    As a result, the little ball stayed 'Yellow' rather than go 'green' to say 'Ready for Sale'.

    So, I've no idea how long that took, but it should be available tomorrow, for free :D

    QS :D

    I submitted NoAgenda on Tuesday and it is waiting for review.

    From what's been said here I can be looking at another week before it is in the app store.

    It is free so I am not too concerned. But I still have that tingly fingers feeling of what people will think of it.
