Review Times for Apps [FruitoMarathon: Day 3 – Peach]

The third fruit in fruHarvest is a peach. It’s also on the app’s icon. Today I’ll write about the review times for applications submitted to the App Store. It usually takes about a week before the status “Waiting for Review” changes to “In Review”. This website shows daily estimates: between 2.99 days on Aug. 9 and 8.45 days on Jan. 7 in this year. Let’s compare with waiting times of my apps:

Version 1.0 – Submitted: Oct. 17, 2013 – Reviewed: Oct. 24 (7 days) – rejected (IAP are not loaded in the store) – Resubmitted: Oct. 24 – Reviewed: Oct. 30-31 (7 days) – approved

Version 1.0 – Submitted: Oct. 25, 2013 – Reviewed: Nov. 1 (7 days) – approved

Is there a correlation with times showed on that website? Not, really. The benchmark is 7 days and we all know it very well.

I’d like to add that besides “Waiting for Review”, you sometimes have to wait while it’s “In Review” (from 2 to 24 hours). Circles were reviewed relatively quickly, but then it took 7 hours in status “Processing for App Store” until it became “Ready for Sale” (usually it’s just 10-15 min, though I read stories about 36 hours in processing).
