Does anyone know actual numbers for how many they are needing to ship?

 


 

There were 3000 apps on launch. Perhaps only a dozen or two were native apps - the remaining ones must have qualified for this free offer. Some people develop one or more apps so all in all 3000 is an over estimate. 


 

Some apps were approved after the launch date. Mine (19th) was AT launch so I don't think it count.

 

But 3000 is a rough estimate that might be near correct. So unfortunately with the info we've gathered, it makes them look slow...

There were probably more then, as you didn't need to actually post your app for sale/free to get the offer.  I haven't posted mine for sale but I have submitted my order.   Not sure how many have done the same.  I'll be posting mine once some things are fixed and the update is approved.

Actually that's a good point too.  Apps were just submitted prior to launch.  My approval didn't come until the 28th. (first denied due to signing on the 18th).  Also in one of the earlier posts someone had received an e-mail back from TMG about the backlog, and they simply stated that they have 'thousands' to ship.  So I guess no real idea of  the actual numbers.
