App Store Slowness

Sometimes I wish the biggest app developers would get together and delist their apps for a day, just to show how much pain this process causes.

I couldn’t have said it better. One of the best signals that you can give to your customers is quick intervention. Someone proposes a feature that goes along with your vision and actually improves the app? Work on that and push it quickly. Is there a bug? Roll out a fix as soon as you can.

These examples are simply not possible in the App Store. Someone else decides if and when the update is available, and the wait is often long enough to kill the momentum. The possibility to act quickly is the thing I miss the most when I work on iOS/Mac apps.

Fortunately I can enjoy that in my other web based product.
