Game not showing in search results

The lite version of our game Doodle Bomb was approved for the store last night, but its not showing up in the just released sections and its not returned in searches. Anyone else experiencing this type of issue. It has been 12 hours or so since the game was approved.

You can get to it by drilling down to apps by our company...

Thanks,

it can take up to 24 hours - as apple clearly tells you in the email they send you. just be patient, and it will appear eventually. you can send users direct to it now by using a link to the item in the store - those links will work once it has been approved. everyone deals with this - so, it isn't personal. you just gotta live with it.

Not being impatient, and I understand what they say in the email... just simply stating it is different than what I have experienced with other approved apps in the past and asking if others are experiencing longer wait times as well.

Yep, its definitely taking longer than in the past. Before it would usually be up within an hour or two of the approval email, now it can take up to a day.

We are talking about selecting the next day> Ready for sale e mail arrives and you set it to the next day. That definitely pushes the release up to 24 hours into the future. The release date appearing on iTunes is actually next days date. Works quite well now. Not like before. Also noticed that the daily releases of apps are bunched together and released at the same time. (alphabetically arranged) Not the trickle affect like before. A couple of apps every few hours. One release per day! Awesome!

yes, I was surprised not to find Relax Trainer after it went Ready For Sale... It took at least 24 hours, after the weekend it can be found now...
