    Is there any real time notification process to let you know when somebody places an order for an app you've uploaded to the app store? For Android, I can see a list of orders immediately. If somebody buys my app and then has some sort of issue with his/her purchase - I can go right in and see what happened. Is there no capability like this for iPhone apps? All I can find is a monthly list and, at the moment, the latest is for February - which doesn't help me at all right now... Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    No, this is not possible. It is possible to see the stats for the preceding day only. (and of course months/years) This makes app launches kinda exciting and kinda scary because you don't know how much you have actually sold in the first 24 hours until the next day if you are not using an external tracking service.

    Thank you. But how do I even see that? I can't even find where to get yesterday's sales report.

    Sign up through App Annie. You can track downloads/purchases through there.

    The sausage king of Chicago? :p I'm going to download that app now. Thank you. I'd also love to know where people are finding their reports of the previous day's transactions. Can you tell me where to find that?

    In iTunes Connect, click on the Sales and Trends button.

    App Annie allows you to track your app ranking hourly so you can get an idea of sales but otherwise I don't think there's a way to track it exactly.

    Thank you. App Annie sounds like a great program and I'll eventually get it situated as soon as my app is 100% ready. I'm finding the approval process for the app store extremely challenging - almost to the point of just giving up and going Android only.

    Yea the approval process for apple is a joke everyone will agree. Not only does it take about 8-12 days but you'll get rejected for the weirdest reasons and then you'll have to resubmit and wait that time again. My last game update I got rejected because they would not find my ads. Well they couldn't find my ads because you won't see ads til level 10 and of course the reviewer didn't go that far they just rejected it. As I said this was on an update which got approved 3 times before no problem.

    Yup... My app gets rejected on things it was approved for before as well. I keep needing to tell them over and over how something works and/or why it works that way. I suppose there's something they just don't like about my app and want to give me a hard time. It's nothing crazy - it's automotive related. I just don't get it. If it's really going to be this much of a challenge I'll just live without iPhone users. It's insane that I even have to consider that but my life won't be over without Apple's approval.
