App Store Connect has always been a cataclysmic dumpster fire, and while this latest update makes it look better on the surface, it appears to still be plagued with the same old issues, such as pages that hang on loading spinners or return vague error messages.
App Store connect wasn’t ugly before - it was buggy and confusing.
Like they had a “save” button at the top of the form and a submit button at the bottom. You can’t submit until you save, but they don’t tell you this anywhere.
And if you upload an app... nothing happens. It won’t be listed when you try to submit it until some time later. Nobody knows why. There is a “processing” status but this is buried on a different page that hasn’t been clearly labeled and there is no progress indicator. Sometimes it takes minutes, sometimes hours, sometimes you have to try uploading a second time to make it work.
I’m not convinced they’ve fixed any of that...
Looks like a (much needed) make over but with little else. It is faster though, it was horribly flakey and prone to screens not loading on first attempt.
