It's been a long, sometimes difficult journey, but I'm happy to say that I've submitted the very first version of my very first iOS app to the App Store for review. I'm also happy to say that I'm quite proud of how it turned out and that it will truly be the best life counter in the App store.
I submitted it this morning, and according to Shiny Development, the average app store review time is 6 days. Now, I'm fully expecting for mutility to get rejected at least once, mainly because I've been told to expect to get rejected at least once. There is a nearly infinite number of reasons an app can get rejected due to extensive gray areas built right into Apple's App Store Review Guidelines. Nothing more to do than wait and see.
In the mean time I've completed mutility's home page (which is where mutilityapp.com redirects to), set up a twitter account and support email address for it, and have begun collecting my thoughts for a series of posts about it from my perspective as a new iOS developer.
