Yes, go ahead and sign and then post for sale.  After approved, the latest version will be available for download.  The original price of the item is what will be seen by the user.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

That sounds very sensible - I'll get the it signed and upload a new paid release.

 

Thanks

@peter.  I am not seeing where in the vendor portal you can delete older versions.  What can yo udo that?

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

John, never tried it... I merely assumed it was possible.

 

How can you not be allowed to pull an older version?  What if it's buggy or insecure?

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

As far as I can tell, you can not delete previous versions.  The newest version just replaces the previous version after approval.  You can "pull" a product from app world, but that would only apply to the current/latest version.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

Does that mean that when a new version is posted, nobody can ever download the old one again?  That would, of course, suffice in place of my suggestion.

 

I'd be very concerned if it was impossible to effectively hide or remove a given version, if it didn't basically happen automatically in some way.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

My guess is that the previous versions will no longer be available for download, but will still exist, of course, on devices that have not updated. While I'm not positive on this, it's used in most mobile marketplace designs, and I doubt RIM would want people downloading old versions of an application.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

My "Apple Catch" app was approved several weeks ago. I updated the app with minor bug fixes and signed it and resubmited it as a new version on Friday. Today it was approved. Thats a really fast turn-around for resubmissions.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

@peter9477: I just noticed that after my resubmission, App World was automatically updated with my new version. I didn't have to repost it for example.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

I'm curious why you would want the consumer public have access to older versions.  A new version is there for some applicable reason (bugs, enhancements).  Probably good practice for everyone is to have some kind of version control.  Worse case, keep copies of the BAR files for each uploaded release (e.g. MyApp_120.bar).

 

In the case where a new version is to support a new version of the OS, the upload allows you to target the platform and version.  So those with "older" devices would still be able to get to the proper version for thier OS.
