Default Length of the review process right now?

Is it just our company or has anyone else noticed that the review process has simply slowed down to a crawl in the last few weeks 10 + days just to hit "In Review" level. We have many updates as well that simply sit until we send a reminder notice, asking if they have forgotten the app. The next day the app is reviewed. Very odd timelines right now.

I too have noticed very strange review times. Some take 7 to 10 days for an update or initial review, except for the one app I have now that is #14 in US trivia, #5 in Australia, #7 in Canada (One Direction). I submitted it for an update and it was reviewed within 2 days, yet other apps sit waiting? I don't know if it has anything to do with whether or not, your app has been flagged as a top selling app or not? I found that strange.

Default Figured it out!

The Mac Apps that weren't reviewed had been left alone so the apps would hit the Sandboxing requirements of June 1.

I guess now things should go back to normal. Needless to say the ones that were reviewed today got "rejected" Sandboxing violations.

My apps are usually reviewed in 7 days, I've never had one that deviated more than a day from that. Love Me Not took 8 days, but it probably took a little longer because of Memorial Day.

last week it took my app about 6 working days to get rejected.

That particular app was for China, HK and Taiwan, so I am not sure if it went through the global review process.

We had 6 apps up for review. We got an email from apple stating that they needed more time to process our apps.

2 weeks after submission, we were finally approved and released.

It does seem to have slowed down a little in recent weeks.

Default Depressing now.

Almost every single app we have in review is dying a slow death in the review process. Not sure what is going on. This is really affecting our ability to maintain our apps. Simple updates are literally just sitting until we ask for help and now even that doesn't seem to work. We are seriously contemplating removing apps that are in review and re-submitting them probably they would be approved faster. It was never like this before.

Kind of a neat way to check on the latest review length average:
