Re: how long ty approve a new channel

It took 3 months for me to get published last week. I need to check the details - but i think there was delay of 2wks on their side after testing started, then 2wks on my side while i patched something, so discounting that i would say 2 months queue wait till ones turn comes (preposterously long? why, yes! they are strategically understaffed) and then a short yet variable delay. The guys were excellent when we were in touch though.

Took me 4 months. They say in the Tagged post at the top of the page it is MUCH less now. Read it!

Huh, what do you know? I guess someone reads the announcements/boilerplate on top. Not me though, apparently - just saw it now when pointed at. Post dated 7/17 - I guess i was the last backlogged case in question, since i was the last channel published 7/17. Which makes me both a little amused and a little sad at the same time.

Anyway, we should keep a thread sharing our experiences. Who knows, with enough volunteers we may make a tracker like this http://appreviewtimes.com/ (btw, current iOS review wait averages 6 days end-to-end, from submittal to approval)
