Did they even look at many submissions?

I've spoken to a couple devs now and all of them reported that their apps didn't receive any launches. I think they forget that analytics are everywhere.

In my case, it looks like they viewed the wrong video link as well. 0 Views on the submission video.

Anyone else see this kind of thing?

    Yeah, same here. We had a workflow setup to send us notifications if any new used the app and received none.

    I wonder if there's a way to message everyone to see who did see activity

    Physically impossible for them to watch every video and actually view the app considering the are asking for your source code. With the time frame they had they had about 6 seconds per submission. They need about a week to make an actual decision

    I know there's a degree of triage, but I haven't heard anyone say they did see a launch. It reminds me of the phrase, the fix is in.
