Is it raining updates today?

What is up, Apple?

I swear I've grabbed some 20 updates today! This is coming from a guy with no life who checks the AppStore fanatically 90x/day, so these can't just be seen as letting stuff pile up for a few days either!

Hopefully this means approval will soon be getting back to normal as I've never seen such a one day "flushing of the system" (and, sure, 95% are tinsy tweaks to make them more OS 3.0 compatible, there were still quite a few nifty new tweaks made in these games as well).

Someone said they got 38 updates today.

I just noticed the same thing.

Maybe Apple got sick of the approval process, and just put them all through at once.

Out of curiousity, is this making the appstore run painfully slow for anyone else? I'm on a wifi connection, and I can barely budge, and it often disconnects me while maneuvering through the menus.

Yes, that happens to me too. I got 10 updates today and two of them only took 2-3 days to approve. Sentinel 2 and Tyrian just came out a week ago and they already got their updates! Awesome though. I think Apple is just approving whatever update comes!
