i don't think animations would break, although the native tween engine is certainly a handful, especially with more complex animation sequences.

 

every AS3/AIR developer should at least check out Jack Doyle's tweenign platform.  it's truely amazing.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

OK, now I'm frustrated and worried.  Submitted my app on December 27, it has been waiting on test house ever since.  At the time, I was supposed to submit and then later, when signing became available, sign the app.  Great.  I requested my signing keys on Monday morning.  It says it will take two days.  On Thursday I opened a ticket because I still have nothing back to let me sign.  The automated email says they'll get right back to me.  24 hours later, no help on the ticket, no signing keys, no happiness.

 

This is brutal.  Did everyone else take several days to get set up for signing?  Seems like something that should be automated and happen in about 5 minutes.  I wish it were like Android where I generate and manage my own keys.

Check you spam folder. That keys always land there :smileyhappy: It takes about 10 hours during week to get them, and about 2 days when requesting during weekend.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

Many people seem to have their responses dumped into a SPAM folder by Gmail or whatever they use.  Some have even found it there a week later only after triple-checking.

 

As for Android, if what RIM is doing here prevents or reduces the piracy and similar problems that apparently plague the Android market, we should consider this all a necessary evil.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

Thank you for the help.  Yes, the keys went in my gmail spam folder.  I can't remember ever having another non-spam email go in the spam folder.  Neato.

 

Now my frustration continues.  5 days later, I thought I knew my PIN but I guess not because I got some HMAC error when I try to register the keys.  Brutal.  Back to square zero with another key request.  This time I'll be actively watching the spam folder on Monday.

 

I have to admit that I am struggling to see how this process will result in any improvement over the Android environment.  I do see how it will be one more minor irritant deterring hobby coders from being interested in this platform when there isn't a free playbook on the line.  As a Canadian, I hope that I'm wrong or that hobby programmers just don't matter to the success of a platform.  I want to see RIM thrive.  Oh well, enough off topic rambling from me.

 

Thank you for the very useful tip to check the spam folder.  Much appreciated.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

I haven't yet tried to sort out the details of how this whole process works, but I doubt that an "HMAC error" would be what results from having the wrong PIN.

 

Maybe if you post the error here (sanitized as appropriate) you'll figure things out sooner than if you just wait for new keys, try again, and probably get the same error because it's related to something else you're doing wrong.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

Greensock Tweening Platform is very good; just be aware of the licensing required if you plan to charge for your app. http://www.greensock.com/licensing/

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

Wow, after reading some of the turnaround times, I was really dreading the wait time.  But I submitted my app March 1st and just got the approval letter ( the one that says put your app up for sale ), today, March 5th.  Awesome.  I was freaking out about not doing something obvious right since this is my first app ever lol.  

 

Good Luck all!
