Updated: This has been resolved, see comments below for details from YallaApps.
YallaApps, the company that submit Windows Phone Apps in parts of the world Microsoft forgets, has a BIG problem at the moment and to make things worse they are not talking about it publically!
In short something is borked between YallaApps and App Hub (the Microsoft submission side) and as such there is a hold on all submissions! So the very purpose for it has stopped, and there is not a mention on the blog or site about this. Very poorly done Yalla!
How did I find out? I emailed them because after 5 days my app hadn’t been submitted! Below is their response.
