I think it depends on the line you get put in. I submitted updates to two games, a couple days apart recently. The first game was approved in four days. The second took ten days. Both games are similar in play and feature set, so there's no reason one should take longer than the other.

my was put into the review on 17may,
the clapboard lite
got first rejected to to a 3.0 problem (bug in the beta 5 with threads !), which I patched (work around), next because I had a lite version with a email restriction (I removed the button - which gave a hint to the full version which is not allowed) and now waiting since the last change of last week (8days). my poc update meanwhile got through faster.

We just submitted two apps for review about a week ago. The first, an update, was approved but the new version is not yet available. The second is a new app, and no word yet. We are hoping today. We actually got an email this time about our update approval. I had thought those were stopped because we didn't get them when we made a few updates last month.

I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but I just don't understand why Apple can't be a little more open about this review process. For a company that's put a lot of great work into the phone it blows my mind to see how mis-managed the approval process is.

Just to Verify

I submitted my debut app "Mummy's Revenge" on 5/22 to Apple and I was wondering whether they may approve the App on a Saturday or more importantly for me a Sunday. Here is a link to my thread if you haven't seen it already: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=14288

Thanks in advance.

This is the worst part of developing for the AppStore. The waiting is just so hard because you can't do anything to make it go faster. I know the Apple people have a lot of applications to review, but I guess even 7-10 days for a app review isn't actually too bad.
