Go, Opera, Go!

Haha! This is fantastic :) Opera are goading Apple into approving the app with a realtime count-up from the time the app was submitted for approval!

Given that's it not yet been approved, and is hardly a low-profile app, I guess Apple are either mulling over how they can reject it without looking complete arses, or approving it too quickly and making it look like favouritism!

Don't get me wrong, I love Apple to bits, but they certainly need a kick up the jacksy regarding the whole App Store approval process. Being an iPhone app developer, I'm speaking from experience...

Update, 13/04/2010: And, much to everyone's surprise, it's released! Nice one Opera and Apple :)
