Will a very basic app get approved?

Will a basic app with just a single page and a couple of dialog boxes be approved? I am new to this and I could only do that much in two days. I don't know if I can improve it any further. So is there a chance that it may get approved?

Re: Will a very basic app get approved?

It's extremely unlikely such a basic app would get approved, and it's a certainty it would not be if it doesn't have any of the "service integration" stuff beyond that. If you wish, post a description of the concept here and people could give their opinion on it.

Haven't you already missed the deadline though? Apps had to be submitted by Jan 21 to qualify for the 10K program.

[ Edited ]

What I've done is just a personality quiz with a single question.One of seven options can be chosen and when the user clicks 'submit',the result pops up in a dialog box.Users can go back as many times as they wish and select the same or a different option. That's all I've done. :smileyembarrassed:

 

(The deadline has been extended to 24th feb,2013)

Do you have a link for this deadline extension news? As far as I know, the dates shown on http://developer.blackberry.com/builtforblackberry/documentation/10kcommitment.html are still valid, and the initial submission still has to have been done by Jan 21 per that page.

Is my app too basic? Can you please suggest anything I can do for it?

Re: Will a very basic app get approved?

I have no idea what that is, but I doubt that any deadline extension with it also applies to the 10K thing. You should inquire with whoever is administering that program to learn more.

In any case, your app as described is almost certainly too simple for the Built For BlackBerry program. You can see what some of the few other approved apps are like at http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/search/built for blackberry (This isn't an exhaustive list, as far as I can tell, but many of the simpler ones are there.)

The link you have provided has no affiliation with Built for BlackBerry or the $10k Developer Commitment.

Re: Will a very basic app get approved?

Best read some other posts in Built For Blackberry forum and you will get an idea of functionality/features required in an app to become B4B :-)
