We are looking now at 20 + days to get approved for Mac Apps

I guess we are looking now at Mac Apps taking three weeks to be approved. Would love to know what your turn around time has been? Looks like this happened recently since it never took this long before.

Updates are super fast under 3 days.

I've noticed review/approval times substantially increase across-the-board.

Could be outliers, but it is starting to look like a trend.

I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.

Same here…we had a Mac game 3 weeks in queue until it changed to 'in review'.

Edit: oh, and just got approved after less than 1 day 'in review'.

Yeah there is a lot of complaining on Apple's developer forums about increased wait times.
