After over 5 weeks of waiting, we are still awaiting approval from Apple for publishing the Mobicip app on the App Store. We had been hopeful that we would reach a quick resolution after the holiday season, especially after Apple contacted us several times last week to fix minor errors and contractual issues. However, we have received an email recently stating that our application is “requiring unexpected additional time to review.
We apologize for the delay and will update you with further status as soon as we are able”. Apple Developer Programs support has clarified that there are several thousand apps in the App Store pending review, and that 5 weeks is not the longest developers have had to wait. We have done everything that Apple has asked of us, so we’re not quite sure what is holding up the app from being published. While we will continue to improve our product (and work on developing the premium version), trust that we are doing everything possible to get this much needed product into your hands. Once we hear any news, we’ll broadcast it to you.
Meanwhile, we have started an online petition at http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/mobicip to allow our users to petition Apple to approve the app. Please take the time to support the petition. It literally takes less than one minute to do. We apologize for the delay and any inconvenience caused, and look forward to delivering positive news in the very near future. If you haven't done so, please register your email on our website so that you will get email notifications from us. We will pass along any news we get from Apple, and hopefully share a launch announcement with you soon.
The Mobicip Team
