Lessons From Five Years in Mobile News Apps: #1 Don’t have a news app.
Priya Ganapati

Thanks for sharing your experience about ‘news app’. However few things mentioned in the article is incorrect from my experience (based on the fact that I’ve built apps for iOS for over 7 years, including BBC, Times for iPad etc). It does not take 2 weeks for Apple to approve the app. It takes up to 5 working days for any new app and about 3 days for subsequent revisions. You could also expedite the approval by simply filling up a form on Apple’s site. Coming to negative reviews, yes there are many unhappy customers, and this is coz the app was not ‘tested’ properly. Why blame the customers when the Dev/Test team have not done their job. IMO mobile responsive website can never match the experience delivered by native apps. PERIOD!
