App store review

From the App store review step (which may appear as β€œApp Store review”, β€œPlay Store review”, etc depending on your selected distribution platform), you can quickly see the status of your app update as it goes through the store review process.

Available actions:

  • (iOS) Developer Reject β€” Pull your in-progress submission from the review queue.

  • (Android) Mark submission rejected by Google β€” Manually flag a submission as having been rejected by Google.

A note on Google review: Because of a limitation with the Google Play Publishing API, Runway is unable to differentiate between updates that are in review with Google and those that have been released to the Google Play Store. Because of this, when you submit an Android build for review, Runway's Submission, Review, and Release steps will appear ready (green), though they may still be in review with Google.

Due to a limitation with the Google Play Publishing API, Runway cannot offer support for Managed Publishing. If you have Managed Publishing enabled on the Google Play Console, you must manually publish updates from there. Additionally, the status of an update may appear as Released or Staged Rollout In Progress in Runway even if it has not yet been made available for users via the Play Console.

Selected build in app store

The selected build module indicates which build was submitted for review, as well as its matching CI build identifier. This module will only appear after your app update has been submitted for review.

The selected build can’t be changed after your app update has been submitted for review. If needed, you can Developer Reject the current submission to select a different build, and then re-submit for review.

Here, you can view and edit key information that will be passed along to Apple’s reviewers.

App submission checklist

You can add checklist items to this step by visiting the Checklist tab.
