    Web: copy. done!
    Android: updated. done!
    iOS: Oh sht. Not again. Coordinate w me Apple.

    What operations are performed in the review process? Is there a standard set of tests? If so they could provide a downloadable testing suite and an automatic online validation certificate, so if you are in a rush you could test the app yourself and have it delivered in a few hours..
