12 July 2012Business Insider:
“People have this idea that there are 100 people in India doing app reviews,” Lee tells Business Insider. “It’s just people in a building at Apple, and like every other part of Apple, they can’t get enough really good people. Apple will not compromise the quality of its teams to fill it in. I promise you its a lot smaller than you imagine.”
I was shocked by this. I had always assumed app review was offloaded to foreigners. For a system that requires hundreds of apps per day to be assessed, in spite of criticisms the process is slow, I think it is very revealing that Apple is steadfast in keeping it in California.
