Still "Pending Contract"I have a tab open in my browser, I refresh it like a hundred times a day. The tab is the page that shows the status of the iPhone Application we submitted, the iPhone Siddur, Zmanim, Minyain app and soon to have “Luach” (Jewish calendar).

As you can see, we submitted it on July 25th. On August 1st, it was rejected for a feature being missing. We then resubmitted it, with a batch of new features. The application was then approved on the 4th, but it is still pending the legal team to approve my contracts.

Now the contracts are all digitally signed documents, with EFT for banking. It is mostly automated. But it seems like an Apple legal rep needs to manually review each before the account is allowed to sell apps on the Apple Store.

So now, we wait for Apple to give us legal approval. I keep refreshing the page, over and over again. Why? Cause we want to push this version out so we can release the next version, which is awesome!

If you know anyone at Apple, please see if they can expedite it for me. Please? 🙂

    Hi Barry, I understand perfectly well how you feel. Do you maybe feel like this? Or like this?

    Trust me, all this pain will turn into enthusiasm when you are finally in the App Store. In our case I had the mail on the iPhone on a Friday morning. And when I saw the app in the store, I was flying. And, man, you bet I was RUNNING to Shul that night.

    Kol Tuv to you and may there be lots more high quality Jewish iPhone Apps!

    Congrats on getting it approved! Although we’re not Jewish and won’t be downloading it, we can be sure that plenty of people will… awesome – kudos!

    Great job on getting the application this far in the process. I am sure by now the legal got back with you. I know they go through everything with a fine tooth comb, but it all seems that all good things are worth a wait. Best of luck with the new application!
