Presumably everyone who registered for the WebWorks webcast has received this by now. (It's of course not limited to those who had registered.)
Thank you for participating in the BlackBerry WebWorks webcast series. We’ve now opened the free BlackBerry Smartphone offer and look forward to seeing your BlackBerry WebWorks in BlackBerry App World.

I would imagine there's something different in the manifest.mf file, if nothing else. Can you check yours for signs of it being WebWorks-y... easiest if you compare with an AIR manifest.mf of course.

I looked at MANIFEST.xml under META-INF folder but did not see anything different between Webworks App and ActionScripts App. I saw a line in the manifest.xml file "Entry-Point:" which points to an xml file inside the "air" folder.. something like Entry-Point: app/air/myapp-app.xml
So I compared the two entry point xml...
The WebWorks app xml have couple of markings that they could check if its Webworks app...for example:
<!-- <title>Webworks Application</title> -->

Is the App world Server Time out of wack?? I see my app submission ticket was created at: Feb 18, 2011 20:05:43
And the time here is Feb 18, 2011 15:15 CST
Wonder what timezone they have set on their server
Update: Seems like it is London time (GMT)

It appears to be UTC. I just submitted a signed update to my app and while it was 16:18 EST here, the ticket shows 21:17:53, which is UTC.

Thankyou billfoust, JRab... I wasn't even hoping for it considering they shorted the offer date(initially was till March 31st) but if you go to DevZone its already closed.
@billfoust: You should have submitted something..doesnt have to be complicated. Oh well..am sure RIM will have more offers for developers...they really need good developers to back them to be winners in the marketplace. Little incentives like these does serve as motivation..atleast they have got me hooked :-)
