    Same here! I submted on Sunday and it come on the app store on Sunday. It is hard to wait, but it is worth it. BTW: I got a sale today in GBD (I think) currency, does anyone know what that is?

    Good luck with your app!

    Yes sir! I was on vacation (Golfing), but I think that it took 2 maybe 3 hours after it was approved. Now, I am waiting for apple to review 1.1.

    haha... add me to the list of "submitted on sunday, approved the next sunday" folks. I wonder if apple actually gets a huge influx of games submitted for approval on sunday. All these "nights and weekends" devs working hard all weekend and submitting right before bedtime on Sunday.

    That must be it! I guess I am popular in Great Britain! 1 sale in 1 day from GB. LOL. Thanks!


    I submitted mine on Monday actually. If you look at the iScreamer! screenshots on iTunes, it is 1:46 am on Monday morning :p

    So ignorant, man...

    By the way, did you know about Google?

    You can simply type GBP there and you'll magically get a list of stuff that have some connections with this strange currency.

    Only 1 iScreamer. Apple does not allow the same name twice. All of the other ones that have scream in them are like those dumb web jokes that make a scary picture pop up. None of them are like mine :p

    Ok, mine is the one in my description, and the one that is sold by App Tech Studios. Version 1.1 is coming soon! Thanks for asking ;)

    Also, make sure to start on your free/paid license paperwork at the beginning of development and not when you're finished and submitting :) We got our first release delayed almost a month for forgetting about that..
