Update under review for 3 weeks now

How long should a simple app update take?

 

I added a action bar on the bottom of my app to help people share or review it. This update was submitted on Feb 17th and today is March 9th.

 

Anyone have a ballpark of how long this process takes?

Re: Update under review for 3 weeks now

In most cases, updates take less longer than new apps. At the moment a lot of devs are already waiting 4+ weeks on their apps to be approved.


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

It used to take about two days, currently it seems to be taking about a month...

Re: Update under review for 3 weeks now

I have known times when it was approved the same day. But of course times change.

Anyway, in most cases, it is a good thing that these reviews are there. I have learned to live with it, and it makes no sense fighting it. Just be patient and think possitive :-)

Re: Update under review for 3 weeks now

Not good for me either. I have an update for a PlayBook app to support BB10. The submission has been pending for 2+ weeks already...I wish I could get it out before US launches.

Re: Update under review for 3 weeks now

Thank you! It looks like my app is live... 2 days short of a month Smiley Happy

 

Now with the "Review this App" action bar option, hopefully I will get some reviews from people that actually like it.

 

Previously I had only one review of someone complaining that the app was terrible and that is was just a bunch of PNG files that you could attach to messages... the app is called Animated Emoticons... not sure what he was expecting when he splurged for my $0.99 app.

Re: Update under review for 3 weeks now

I seems like review time depends on the target platform of the app. I submitted few apps for BB10 and PlayBook on the same day and BB10 apps were approved after 10 days or even less (and those apps have Build for BlackBerry status, that usually increase the review time). My PlayBook apps still in review, now it's almost a month Smiley Sad And I made a stupid mistake by selecting the wrong minimum OS Smiley Happy so I guess that update will be available in next 2 months Smiley Very Happy
