Metadata & Uploads Editing

Does editing your metadata or screenshots after submitting cause your review to take longer? Like its a new submission date.

Anything that changes your spot in the queue requires a resubmit which Apple will tell you about. If you think the screenshots and metadata need changing you should change them even if you lose your spot in the queue because they drive organic downloads.

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.

@endodoug - Are you are asking if after uploading your Binary to the App store & your App is in the status "Waiting for Review" & you make changes to say App Name, Keywords, Screenshots? & if this has a impact of resetting your wait time.

I dont think it makes a difference i.e., it doesnt put you back at the end of the queue, as I have seen my app go into review the next day after I made some last minute changes

@optimizemyapps.com - That is exactly what I'm asking. I got approval soon after posting, but it was several days longer than avg time from @appreviewtime. I know they can vary, but wasn't sure about my changes affecting the time. I'm new to the process and want to schedule launches for future projects, so thought I'd ask.

Thanks for the input.

I am pretty sure that it doesn't have any effect. I quite often change keywords or the description, even the name of the app sometimes, while it is waiting for review. I have never noticed that these apps take any longer than normal to get reviewed.

I think the only thing that resets it is if you reject your binary and submit a new one.
