My app, Where is it, is live on app store https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/where-is-it-find-it/id1031834674?ls=1&mt=8 after approximately waiting for 10 days for review. Android version, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.gaurav.whereisit , was available within 2 hours of uploading.
This has made me realise the importance of Ionic Deploy. If I have to change a letter in the description, I have to resubmit and wait for the app store approval process and again it might take so long for iOS app store to approve. I think Ionic should focus more on Deploy rather than push as there are good & free (also) push services available to work with cordova apps. I am pretty sure that many developers already have their solution in place for push. What an app needs is OTA updates, which as far as I know, no company is giving out of the box.
After Deploy, Analytics is on second priority, at least for me.
