Before your app is published it passes several approval stages:
1. Right after you hit the Submit button, your app is set to the "Submitted" status. This means that the payment has been processed successfully and our submit team will begin working on the app shortly.
2. Before we send your app to the App Stores it's being reviewed and built by our submit team to prepare it for the review process. Typically, this takes 1-2 business days.
3. The Apple App Store and Google Play manually review every app prior to publication. We have no control over review times and our estimated guidelines for publication are:
4. Once the app is published on both stores, you will receive an email notification with a link to a Landing Page for your app. Also, a link to the Landing Page and Promo Materials become available on the dashboard.
If you don't want your app to be available in the app stores after the event is over, you can request to unpublish it from the dashboard.
