On Friday, I went into the App Store on my iPhone and submitted a review for a game. I just checked all the reviews for that game, and my review hasn't appeared yet. About how long does it take for a review to appear in the App Store?

  • At least 1 week if you're lucky, at most 4 weeks. But usually around 2 weeks. Just set the launch date 4 weeks ahead if you want a countdown launch without failing like BBM.

Usually it shouldn't appear immediately since more often than not, your reviews need to be approved before they are published by Apple for all to see.

  • I've submitted over 50 reviews and never once has one shown up immediately.

    @pacoverflow I'd say between 24 hours and 2 weeks is the range which all that I've cared to check have arrived.

  • @bmike Like i mentioned more often than not they have to go through the approval. But the general time for reviews to appear is 24-48 hours.
