SlingPlayer for iPhone still awaiting approval, despite rumours

image After yesterdays flurry of rumours that Apple had rejected the Sling Player application for iPhone, the guys at Sling Community have managed to talk with Jay Tannenbaum at Sling Media, who was able to shed some light on the current situation. It turns out anyone stating that SlingPlayer has been denied, or confirmed for that matter, is only spreading rumours.

"Here are the facts," he says. "We submitted the iPhone SlingPlayer to Apple a few weeks ago, and we’re in contact with them (Apple). There’s nothing to report yet. It’s a great app, and there’s nothing more we would like to do than have it be available in the App Store."

Part of the problem is Apple’s approval process, which does seem to take an eternity when there’s so much pent-up anticipation.

"A two to three week wait is common," says Jay. "Some apps may take less time, but it’s important to remember that SlingPlayer is far more complex than your typical iPhone app.  It makes sense it would take a little extra time to go through this process."

So there you go, don’t believe the rumours until you hear it from the horses mouth.
