Where are the app updates?

oki im a patient person, i dont grumble about slow releases or not getting my update the next day ..

however, is it just everything i have installed or have the app updates slowed down to a trickle? only ionesphere in the past 14 days or so! many were submitted like a month ago from reading the developers comments.

worthless apps like 'wack-a-boring object' are prolly clogging up the system grr!

anyways .. just sounding off cos im bored at work cheers!

I agree the updates are happening at a snails pace by Apple.

We released an update to the control mechanics for Darkest Fear over a week ago and still there no sign of the update getting approved by apple.

I question the accuracy of this, since I got the Spore update 2 days ago, and it's showing 11 minutes ago. It's the same update listed, I checked.

The Deep Pinball has had "update" on its icon since the update was submitted same time as minigore update Aug 6th! Nothin.

I think its because of the Sept 7th Apple event introducing the new iTouch, prob waiting to release stuff for that.

Or, they're overwhelmed with so many apps that get updated and vying for attention, which means it'll only get worse my friends. Number of apps will only increase over time.

I could blame Brighthouse Labs! I've been told they have 3.5% of the apps in the store, all junk of course. The link goes to acticgerbil.com, which was registered just in Dec of 08, so they work very fast and only to spam.
