Typically my apps get into the “In Review” queue within an hour, and then take 3-5 days to get approved. CheckPlease was submitted on June 16th and is still in “Waiting for Review”.
I didn’t get to submit PocketMoney 3.0.6 until tonight which includes urgent fixes for the keyboard compatibility with iOS 4.0. So if you are a PocketMoney user, you should definitely hold off on upgrading to iOS 4.0 until after PocketMoney 3.0.6 is approved. Otherwise you will be forced to copy and paste your decimal point into your amount field in order to enter your transactions.
Now to contrast Apple’s AppStore process with the Android Marketplace. We had our first Android app submission today (that our intern Ross wrote). When we submitted CheckPlease it was immediately available on the Android Marketplace.
