Faster certification process for publishing and updating apps and games
It would be great if the time it takes for an app or game to be certified was shorter. A full 2 weeks before an app or game is published to the Marketplace is far too long. It would be more bearable if theupdates had a shorter turnaround time, but they don't. Want to push an update? That's another 2 weeks.
Also some moderation of the marketplace would be great to get rid of all the clutter or misleading apps.
so there are a lot of discussions about "Certification takes too long".
It would be helping if we can see somewhere the queue position/estimated time remaining of our submissions in the dev center.
I think it is better to know how ~long I have to wait instead of just waiting and no end in sight.
Guys, what do you think?
We completed this with Windows 8.1.
Most submissions are now certified and live within a couple hours.
Even making simple changes only in the description of an app takes too long. Last time 10 days. This have to get faster
