Default Mac App Store reviews closing in on 30 days now!

Not sure why but it looks like Apple isn't too interested in the Mac App Store anymore? When anything you submit from new apps to updates takes close 30 days to get reviewed developers are hooped.

We are actually baffled that Apple would allow this to happen. It makes the store and controlling our apps unmanageable especially when the apps use live feeds that change occasionally.

Pretty much a disaster.

Maybe the Mac AppStore just isn't doing as well so they shifted their focus?

That's very long indeed. I was planning on porting to MAS but it won't be priority at all if that's the case... I don't expect the organisers of MAS to feel the same, how strange.

This could be due to Mountain Lyon and Apple's improved security. Apple claims signed apps are free of malware and apparantly they want to back up that claim.

Sandboxing and getting apps to work smoothly on Mountain Lion have definetly added to the complexity of the Mac App Store.

At this rate we have 2 weeks left to submit apps for them to make it for the x mas deadline. Pretty scary!

Default Update

We had two apps with small issues resubmitted and approved the next day. Things might be improving.

This stops me from thinking of a business on Mac App Store, 30 days sounds really scary to me.
