Submission process duration

Category: windows apps - submitting and publishing

Since a few weeks the application submission process is really slow because apps are in "Certification" step for days or even more than a week. This is really cumbersome because for instance:

  1. One desktop bridge app is marked as hidden in the store (this is a beta/test submission) to test IAP functionality. I just have to wait a week or so until I can test the submitted app.
  2. Another published app has a bug on some systems. Users are getting the buggy version/have to wait for the fix at least for a week until the submission goes through.

Why is the submission process so slow at the moment? You should really work on this - for instance in the Apple Mac App Store applications usually pass certification in less than one day and often even during weekends.

Yes, the current certification process is too slow. It takes at least several days but I just submit a minor update.
