Apple generally spends most of the review period making sure that the applications function properly, and working with developers to fix quality issues and software bugs in applications. We receive about 8,500 new applications and updates every week, and roughly 20% of them are not approved as originally submitted. In little more than a year, we have reviewed more than 200,000 applications and updates.
no wonder why it takes more than two weeks. they have 40 "fully trained reviewers" for the app store.(shouldnt they add MORE people??).
PS: here at our blog, we can do a 24 hour news/update service coz swigo and i have different timezones. I sleep when he wakes up and i wake up when he sleeps...
