And there goes the deadline...

[ Edited ]

I submitted my app on Decmber 27th, thinking it was more than enough time to meet January 21st deadline.  Unfortunately, the app is still not approved for BlackBerry World, which makes is impossible to submit it for the 10K approval.  I guess the portathons flooded the system more than expected.  Any chance for a deadline extension?

Re: And there goes the deadline...

They had always told us that Jan 11 was a date by which if you submitted, they *guaranteed* approval in time for you to submit for BFB testing by today (midnight Jan 21 in ET timezone). (We always assumed that implied it had to be approvable, of course, and not that everything would blindly be approved.)

Presumably they will at least have some statement to make on the matter, rather than quietly letting the date go by without saying a word. Keep your eyes open for an update, possibly on the dev blog. (I'm just speculating but it seems reasonable.)

Mine was reviewed and rejected, but I submitted before Jan 11.

Re: And there goes the deadline...

DueNorth, you're by no means alone. Mine was too... as I said, the guarantee was only that if it was approvable, it would be approved in time for you to submit by tonight for the BFB deadline. We have yet to see whether they'll respect that "guarantee". I don't recall if it's official, in the Terms, or just something we were told less formally when we asked about what Jan 11 meant. I'll let someone else re-read the legalese if they're concerned about that.

In the end, if our apps were any good to begin with, they'll still sell decently, and nobody should ever have relied on an expectation that really simple apps would just blindly get approvals under this program. It was always supposed to be about quality, and somewhat subjective.

Nice to have the deadline extended by 1 month.

Re: And there goes the deadline...

The announcement says the deadline is extended for applying for B4B. It says 'Apps that have been submitted on or before 8pm EST on January 21st,2013 may qualify for the 10K', does it mean that, only releases uploaded before 21 Jan would be considered?

 

Or the 21 Jan was the deadline for submitting the first version of app?

Re: And there goes the deadline...

I'm also confused. 

 

It seems that this deadline extension is very small change. You HAD (in the past) to submit app before 21 January. THEN they announces that deadline for B4BB is postponed. 

 

I gave up my biggest app after annoucement on January 7th, that only apps submitted before January 11th have chance for 10k as there was no chance to finish it in 4 days. I would rush if I knew that 21st is date for submission.

 

I really hate this deadline excersises that BB does.

Re: And there goes the deadline...

I guess if you create and upload a new app now, it won't be accepted for 10K. :-(
