App "Waiting for Review"

Two of our apps are now in "Waiting for Review" and the other two "In Review", so it looks like we now see when apple is watching at the app. Also there is a status history. I'm wondering if it will make it easier to track what is happening with the app in the black hole (app store review headquarter).

Cool! Thanks for pointing this out. This should make things more transparent.

Thanks Bomber this is great. An extra piece of information for developers to know when their app might go live. Puzzle Dice went "In Review on the 4th of Nov. (today) I will count the days before it goes live, to get an idea how long it takes. If more of you could do this that would be great.

It only showed up for me, when I changed "Release Date" from yesterday to today (btw this doesn't put me on the end of the queue right?).

No it shouldn't.

Is your app still in review or has it been released?

I changed the app release date right after the update was released... then my app's release date was changed to september. part of today's weirdness in the app store.

Looks good. I think it will be alright as long as you don't change the release date after it is approved... I think that's what caused our problem.
