Strange Delays in Appstore Approvals

Wobble Premium is live in the store and has been for months – almost years… FREE updates have been uploaded to Apple in the past and approved quickly – and our usehave loved the free updates – just like they will when these updates are approved.

However, they have all been delayed for no apparent reason…

The new versions of Wobble were uploaded a week before the new blabr App. And whilst blabr was approved yesterday, Wobble has been in review for more than 2 weeks. Wobble has been in the Appstore now for 18 months, and has recently been updated for iOS 4.1 and a new feature was added – which whilst innovative and highly original doesn’t do anything that Apple should find disturbing. I’ve been instructed to keep this new feature under wraps until it’s approved so it isn’t copied!

On another note – how about that Victoria Secret App heh? If that isn’t a prurient I don’t know what is… of course it’s a bit hard to sell lingerie without “steamy hot” pictures, but it’s also hard to sell an App that Wobbles stuff without you know, wobbling stuff… Gotta wonder why the VS app is in entertainment section and promotes the unlocking of “content” when it is just a sales app? huh??

It would be really nice if Apple approved the new versions of Wobble before the Japanese TV show features it next week… yep it’s being featured on TBS, Tokyo Broadcasting System, in a show called, “Kakumei TV” (Revolutionary TV in English) which airs once a week nationwide in Japan.

“The show introduces various NEW things, from new inventions such as machines, games, robots, etc. that would become a role in bringing about a revolution to our future.

That’s a quote from the TV producer – I can’t wait to see what they make of Wobble – it was number one in Japan for a few months last year, so they love the app – it’s a pity that Apple doesn’t recognise Wobble as an app that “brings about a revolution in our future” as well 😉


Here’s the notes on each App and how long it has taken to get through the approval process…

Wobble HD – Apple rejected it saying it was the same as the other Wobble apps – except of course it is the HD version for the iPad (that’s why it’s called Wobble HD!)… 
We’ve completed the review of your app, however, because it duplicates the content and functionality of your app Wobble Premium, which is currently available on the App Store, we cannot post it app to the App Store.
2.11   Apps that duplicate apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them.

It was resubmitted on October 22 – the day after blabr was uploaded.

Wobble for Android Coming

We’re about 50% complete with Wobble for Android, so stay tuned for Wobbling goodness on the Android platform.

Just need to discuss some copyright issues on that store – a few apps are using our ideas directly – but worse they have lifted our design and graphics!

A job for the legal department I guess, unless they want to sell for a reasonable price.
