Looking to Deploy a COVID-19 Crisis Response App to the Public – Start Developer Account Set-up Process Now

Date: March 23, 2020

If your agency is looking to deploy a COVID-19 related application to your community and this is your first time deploying a mobile application, we strongly advise that you begin the developer account set up and approval process IMMEDIATELY.

We are currently seeing 7-10 review times for new applications in Google Play.   Apple is moving much faster with review times, under 24 hours in most cases.   That being said, Apple does quite a bit more screening on the front end to ensure their developers are legitimate.   Kudos to Apple for jumping on this, here’s their current guidance on the process https://developer.apple.com/news/

Give us a day or two and we’ll update the current review times based on our app submission flow for new and existing accounts on our developer account set up page.
