Current turn around time upon submittal?


As we get closer to release, we are working on various time lines. I know it has varied greatly over the past year, so am curious what people's current experiences are in timelines for submittal to the app store?

Many thanks.

My last three submissions took:
  • 8 days
  • 8 days
  • 10 days
This was from submission to approval.

Although not my own submissions, a friend of mine had 2 apps in the last month approved in 6 and 9 days.

We experienced an 8 day turn around time with our game as well. I have a feeling it'll get longer when the Mac App store goes live though.
