Long review time on app store

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Thu Sep 04, 2014 7:35 am

Hi. I've posted two apps on the app store 2014-08-20 and both apps are still waiting for a review. Does it normally take such a long time?

And how long will it take if you have to upload a new version of an app? I mean if you find a huge bug in your game and want to fix it you'll have to wait at least a week for this to be approved as well?

I know they want to keep the quality up on the app store but it takes too long time to post apps there.

It is so nice to be able to upload an update that fixes a bug in your app on the play store and be able to see it live an hour or two later even though this allowes a lot och shitty apps to end up on the play store wich never would have been approved on the app store

Is there anyone here who can tell me your usual workflow for maintaining an app for both google play and the app store?

This is some kind of help: http://appreviewtimes.com/
It's only an average taken from some apps reviews, but is fairly correct.

If you upload a new version of your app, it will be like if it was your first version. So you will get thrown back in the queue ^^ (Love on Apple)

It just takes a lot of time on App store, i guess we all just have to live with it, it have always been like this, and yea it sucks, but just relax, it will get out (hopefully) or if they find a bug, you will have to fix it and wait the whole time again, pretty sad, but that's how it works.

Hope that helped a bit ^^
