    One brave soul decided to whine, while the resentful rest prefer to curse under their breath.

    Someone has to speak out. Why not him?

    Is he seriously saying that a week is too long? Grow up. I have sympathy for those who have waited weeks with no word from Apple, but one week and this guy is whining? It makes me want to dismiss his other, seemingly more valid, concerns.

    Yes, this was my reaction to the whole article also. There are some valid points embedded in an extremely unbalanced, petulant rant. Not only is it one-sided in the sense of not considering the extreme success that Apple's approach has garnered, but it also shows a nearly complete lack of developer concern for the welfare of users, the benefit of whom causes many of these restrictions exist.

    Apple has room to improve, and they should, but I like my developers less childish, thank you very much.

    A man of the people. The right sort of people.
    He should edit out the app approval time criticism, I instantly thought an impatient teenager was writing at that point.

    I'm finding the quality of apps being let in is poor, they are designed poorly, have almost no point to them even if they are free.

    and on the other hand, companies that are producing quality apps, are having them rejected as they dont abide by apple/at&t's rules.

    Im not liking the fact that my phone is so limited. potential is there, but its not being permitted.

    disappointing on many parts.

    No, I think it's a valid point. If it takes me a week to submit my program to the store, and it's rejected, I need to do it again, which takes another week...

    Considering I can look at a PC program like Adium or Firefox and tell in a few minutes whether it works well or not, I don't see why Apple should take a week. Considering it might be rejected once or twice, that's 2 or 3 weeks now, for approval. That's far too long.

    A week? Tweetie's last update took 2 weeks and it is an ADA winner. The average approval time for new apps now is "at least" 2 weeks.

    You guys don't know how good you've got it. Takes months for us to get anywhere in our business.
