Flight Control update?

I thought this update was due on the 23rd and now its the 28th?

Do updates have to go through the same process as games, approval from Apple?

Short answer is Yes

updates for the appstore aren't little patches of code that are added to the rest. They are the full game with changes to the code. That's why updates need to go through the long approval process

Also I bet them adding the online aspect made it a bit longer. Apple has to make sure that you're sending it to a secure location, that the user knows you're doing it, etc.

It seems pocket god isn't unique in having updates take forever. To of the top 4 apps have potential updates taking forever through apple, wonder why that is?

We're also starting to think this might be the case :/ We're just as impatient for this to go live as anyone else, lol! I think it's probably just that they have a lot of apps to review at the moment, and it takes time to get through everything.

Personally, I have been checking this page:

http://flightcontrol.cloudcell.com/Member.php?nId=15928

It's a demo profile we made for Apple. I'm hoping that when they check the online stuff, we will see something appearing here...
although there is nothing to stop them making a new/different profile, of course!

In the meantime, you can check out the rest of flightcontrol.cloudcell.com to see some of the stuff that's waiting for you
