App 'in review' for 4 days. Normal?

My very simple app has been 'in review' for 4 days so far. Is that normal? There is not much to it and I doubt it would take more than an hour to test it (at most).

From what I've heard I think its normal. It should be past review soon, maybe a day or two?

4 days isn't normal, but it is getting closer to Dec 24th. They have a lot of apps to test before that date.

Being in review for 4 days fits with my experience.

My last two submissions were "In Review" for 7 days and 5 days. The second one was a simple bug fix with no functionality changes.

Our new game GraalOnline Classic was 10 days "In Review", got approved after 13 days and 23 hours after submission (seems like Apple wants to keep that 14 days record)

Wow, okay I guess my experience is way off. Our normal 'In Review' is about 2 days. From submission to approval usually takes between 1.5 to 2 weeks.

I've heard of submissions taking 4+ weeks to be approved, even for some well known titles by well known developers.

I had a 4 day "in review" after a pair of 2-day durations. Seems normal.
