Could I get away with doing that?

  1. Apple's guidelines don't just apply to apps with known bugs. Your app will get rejected for sure.

  2. Apple may accept your app, but your customers definitely won't like it.

    I'm talking about a paid app that's supposed to include about 100 recipes. Unfortunately, I slacked off and now have a day to get those 100 recipes in and a few small extras.

    Do you think I can get away with submitting an app and delivering more content later? EDIT: I haven't done much work on the app. I have 4 recipes at present.

    Why the deadline?

    The company I am building this app for, *name cut out*, wants to have the app in the store by January, to coincide with the launch of their new book. Do you think that the app could be in the store by then if it were finished tomorrow? If not, I'll just tell them the approval process will likely take too long.

    Should only take just over a week for approval, as long as you don't run into hiccups. Attached is the latest App Store Review Status stats.

    My advice, take the time to produce a "complete" app both for the sake of the client's reputation and to avoid annoying your users. And be careful what you admit to here. Clean Cuisine would probably not like to discover from an internet forum that you were slacking off.

    OK. I cut out the company's name, just to be safe. Please do the same.
