    Day 9 still in review so this is longer then my first app. I was just curious the last tab where it says review when you submitt your app it says review store. I changed mine to Australia several times and it keeps going to new zealand. Are all the applications reviewed in the US and everyone is on one que or is it reviewed in the review stores area etc. So there are different ques for in review?

    Mine has been saying "Ready for sale" for a week and not appeared for sale.

    Just noticed the avaiable date was set to dec 2009 for no reason!!!!

    Ive edited it to be released now, and it should appear soon. But if anybody is waiting ages after "ready for sale" then check the release date in the app details!

    Bah.

    I submitted our third app on Saturday night after struggling with the upload due to code signing issues. Hopefully it gets approved this week.

    Was anyone else having problems during that time? Im thinking their servers might have been down or something...It said code signing failed, but I had verified everything. After a few hours, i tried again and it worked fine.

    Also, has anyone noticed if apps get reviewd quicker if you already have apps out there on the store?

    My second app took less than 24 hours.

    Im starting to think they pick and choose apps to review. My app was a holiday themed one (christmas) and they reviewed it within 24 hours also.

    mine was based on election and i submited with a week and a half left b4 election and i got an email saying they needed extra time to review... only 18 hours after i submited which is insanley quick compared to my usual apps. then i called them up and explained how it needs to be approved in a hurry because of election, so i waited and in a day it was denied for making fun of presedential canadates

    my apps names were:

    smear lipstick on obama
    and
    smear lipstick on palin

    and it showed pics of them and you could smear lipstick on there faces, multi colored lipsticks too xD and take pics.. i would have made millions if it hadnt of gotten denied... 4 times... in a row :'(

    i gave up on that xD soo much hard work and time put into apps just to get them denied :'( it sux

    If you still want people to use your app why don't you upload it free on Cydia. You could also add the "AdMob for iPhone".

    My App CarTrack was submitted 3rd October and went live 9th October (Total: 6 days)

    I have submitted an update to the application on 19th October and so far am still waiting for this to go live (Total: 9 days)

    It really is strange reading the totally random times people are waiting for approvals from Apple. I don't think we'll ever fully understand the process.

    We submitted MobileFiles (iDisk access) to the store 10/20, approved pending contract 10/21, ready for sale tonight 10/30. Seems reasonable overall, especially the application approval part. The legal stuff seemed to take the longest (from what's visible via iTunes connect).

    Yeah I gotta admit it is pretty bullshit not even getting any kind of reply at all. Did we really pay $99 to be ignored?

    Completed and sent my W-8BEN to apple on October 13th but have been stuck in the dreaded "pending contract" status ever since. I emailed iTS Tax on Tuesday but have yet to receive a reply (way to go apple).

    Does anyone know how long it currently takes to set-up a contract? I'm getting really hacked off now.

    Please do not take offense to this but it seems that the wait time varies depending on the size of the application. DChat looks to be a very small application so 2 days seems fair.
    Note: I am not saying anything bad, just my oppinion.

    My small update has just been approved after 15 days! :rolleyes:

    Personally I think it's ridiculous that Apple does not have a queue system.

    What if two people create the same game. One submits first but the second application to be submitted can get published first. That's just bull

    I doubt the size of the app is the issue, my app has been in review since oct 5th and it is quite simple.

    I was pissed for a while, now I just think this whole thing is a joke

    My App just got the greenlights after weeks of "Pending contract"... It took less than 6 hours to get the app approved and almost 6 weeks to get the contract going - But I'm happy the wait is over!
    Or, well - now I have to wait for it to show up in the appstore - but at least it's finally on its way!

    Haha, ye its small so far. Naw size has nothing to do with review time, theres tip calculators taking weeks to approve.

    Pure joy - not!
    When I finally get my app out there it ends up on page 4 - they've set the release date to when my app was approved and not actually released...
    Oh well, that was a sweet anit-climax if I ever saw one. I guess I'm stumped and never even gets a chans to sell at least 10 copies then...
    :(

    If your app can't even sell 10 copies being anywhere in the app store I think you have bigger problems than release date
