As you may have seen, I shut down App Review Times earlier this week. It's always tempting to use the word unfortunately when writing a sentence like that, but I see this as a happy announcement rather than a sad one. It's simply not needed any more, and what better end could I have hoped for a site like this? ๐ŸŽ‰

So why even mention it? I know (because I asked a year ago) that this will be a disappointment to some people. In my opinion, the site has been fairly useless since review times suddenly dropped in 2016, but I shut it down because recently people had been contacting me saying that review times were spiking again. It turned out that wasn't true but there's so little data coming in that a few results can make it appear like the average is rising. People trust the site and it was misleading them, it's time for it to go. I wrote up some history, and a better explanation of why over on my blog.

I also wanted to say Thank You to everyone who contributed review times over the years! I think we make a truly useful site for the time that this was a problem. If you helped by submitting your data, you're part of it. ๐Ÿ†
