Re: Still waiting!!!

Thanks for your reply.

It arrived last week. It took about three weeks between rejection and email with reason.

But anyway I paused my BB activities till you manage to clear backlog and there will be normal review times.

I don't see payback for BB development right now but still hope that it will get better in near future.

Hey @TobyKaos,

Congrats on being selected for BFB! You will soon be able to see Jetpack High in a dedicated section in BlackBerry World along with other applications that have also been selected.

This special featured section will greatly provide further exposure and increase the potential application download rates.

Re: Still waiting!!!

Hey @thubalek,

The team is working hard on clearing the backlogs - normal activities are already resuming as backlogged applications are down tremendously thus definitely continue the BB development activities.

BlackBerry's user base is growing in various markets and the opportunity for your application to be featured in BlackBerry World will provide great benefits.

Re: Still waiting!!!

@whoang

 

I'm pretty successul Android developer (my app is featured on Google Play front page this week) so my opportunity costs are very high.

 

So I fed my work on BlackBerry 10 by enthusiasm for this platform. You have cool tools, at the beginning it looked that you want to establish good relationship with developers that will help your platform grow.

 

But everything messed up in January when it started to look like you prefer quantity over quality:

 

1) you started your port-a-thons that totally blocked reviewing process and didn't bring good apps for the platform

 

2) you excersized with deadlines for your developer programs

 

3) established really weird rules for Dev Alpha C (people like this  https://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/vendor/10180 or https://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/vendor/57816/ will get Dev Alpha C for sure but people that made one or two serious app will not)

 

4) I'm waiting more than one months for approval for my app (I just checked it and it is still waiting)

 

5) I waited three weeks (!) to deliver bug fix that was not in my but in your code!

 

I spent three months with this platform but my enthusiams is gone now. I'm not patient enough to wait weeks to see my app appears in BB World.

 

I'm not leaving forever but until there will be acceptable review times I'm going back to Android.

 

Sorry about that

Tom
