I was wondering how long Apple took to approve you as a developer?
Like 3 hours.
EDIT: It depends on how you approach the process, whether it be as an individual or a company. A company has a significantly longer approval time, meaning it takes weeks and sometimes months.
It only took them about 15 minutes to approve me. Not even that. It didn't take any time at all. I did sign up as an individual though.
Yes, companies can take up to a month. Sometimes (rarely) more.
Yeah, individuals are pretty quick. It took 10-20 minutes for me.
Seriously? So fast? I heard of companies taking like 2 weeks, so if I sign up for the individual $99 program it will be that fast? (The inividual one, not the $99 team one) When did you register?
It's super simple as an individual. Companies take awhile because they have to verify the articles of incorporation and inspect the tax forms for proper taxation of the company.
Nothing to verify except a name as an individual.
Wow cool. Thanks!
I wouldn't count on that. As an individual it took 8 days for me to be approved. On the 8th day I called them and they completed it over the phone it about 10 minutes....
I'm from Canada - not sure if that has anything to do with it....
When did you register? And was it a one person company or a two people in one?
Yeah, our approval process as a company took about 3 weeks.
Same timeframe for us ^^
now I have three Apps in the pipeline, getting all stuck there I assume they have a real problem with the 3.0 approval all get in a huge pipeline.
Anybody see the new checkmark (tested on 3.0 phone) I checked it for 2 of 3 apps (I forgot one or I didnt see the one) -- but they test it anyway for 3.0 or does this mean they delay it till 3.0 comes out ? (code shows for 2.2.1)
It took me about 3 to 4 days to get approved for an individual. Though we are a company we decided to go with the individual route just thought it took less time, I have heard friends who had to wait about 2 months. You can still sell your app under a "company name" although the seller will be only under you, as long as your colleague trust you to deal with the financial situation fairly, that's the way to go if you are an indie developer who didn't try to get approved until the last minute (that your app is almost ready) and you don't wana wait too long.

I applied on a Friday and had it running on the hardware on the following Wednesday and to top it off the Monday was a holiday. So basically 3 business days for me and that was applying as a company not an individual.
Anyone have a company located in Delaware? I'm thinking of forming an LLC there. You don't need to be a resident of Delaware to form a company there (I live in NY). I was wondering what Apple actually looks for. Do I need a bank account and mailing address in Delaware?
