Apple's Crappy App Store Review Times

1 I’m Slow to the Party

being pissed at apple for their app store review times. I then read the app store review process and believe that most app developers are being coerced into using the app store because of the huge apple marketing machine. Check out the time it takes at Shiny Development I’m Currently waiting for 7 apps to clear the apple review process. some of the criteria:

2 Functionality

  • 2.1 Apps that crash will be rejected
  • 2.2 Apps that exhibit bugs will be rejected
  • 2.3 Apps that do not perform as advertised by the developer will be rejected
  • 2.4 Apps that include undocumented or hidden features inconsistent with the description of the App will be rejected
  • 2.5 Apps that use non-public APIs will be rejected
  • 2.6 Apps that are “beta”, “demo”, “trial”, or “test” versions will be rejected
  • 2.7 Apps that duplicate Apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them

I’ve written most of the developers asking how I convert the license away from the app store. Tom Andersen of Ironic software has replied and allowed me to do so .. Many thanks to Tom, check out their software Yep and Leap I’ve been using them for years.


Apparently more are learning of this issue and are blogging as well
