iPhone & iPad Apps Review Team at Apple
is responsible for reviewing the applications you want to enter the Apple App Store has been criticized many times for its slowness or errors in its judgment. Sometimes have ‘cast’ applications harmful , offensive , or even that criticized the company itself . But his work is not easy .
The main problem is that, like many other divisions of the company, this team has very few workers, according to Mike Lee, a former engineer at Apple and a Business Insider. Therefore, unlike what people usually think, the app review team is made only by a small group of people .”They can not get enough good people,” said Lee. ” Apple does not compromise the quality of their equipment to fill them . ”
In addition, the number of applications that need to be checked is huge . According to data provided by the company during the presentation of IOS 6 , there are over 650,000 apps available on the App Store and all have had to be revised.
However, its not easy to find a great quality app, those who miss the cut are worse . Moreover, until Apple released a mobile apps developer document two years ago ( PDF ) in which, among other things, it said it did not need more “farts” applications.
Apple refuses to outsource the apps review work to large groups of people. People insist on having intelligent, educated and well trained staff to do the work. So that means they have to have few good workers to weed out the not so very good mobile apps.
