As time is drawing to a close...
I had submitted my app last Thursday, and forgot to hit the 'submit for review' button. Anyway, Monday first thing in the morning I did this.
How long did it take for the review, that the app is accepted to AppWorld? My apps is somewhat basic, and will add new features in time as it is a hobby.
As well, I noticed it took a few days for approval for the Limited Edition BB10 device. My concern is just we are coming down to the wire, I got reminded, but I am sitting waiting anxiously...not just for the device but the release on a whole!!

Normally it can take day or two, but right now, it is much much longer because of portathons. Some people reports that their apps are in pending review state for a month. I have 3 apps, which are waiting on approval for 15 days.

I'm hitting almost 30 days for mine (submitted on Dec 22). The rules for the Limited Edition offer isn't clear as to whether an app that is denied and then resubmitted for approval AFTER January 21 would still apply. That's what people are concerned about with the delay in approval. If the app still qualifies even if it had to be tweaked for re-approval after January 21, it would give dev's waiting for approval some comfort.

Thanks everyone, all the answers are what I was expecting.
The staff in general has been really good with questions, even since I was using the HTML5 jQuery BB10 theme, the RIM developer (Jason Scott) has been helpful in providing tips.
Might shoot off another e-mail with my concerns, on the Limited Edition Trade-up, you require a App ID which is assigned once approved unfortunately.

I can't comment on how long it will take for your app to be approved in AppWorld, however I can tell you that you can still use this application to register for Limited Edition as it will just sit in the queue until it's approved in AppWorld. You can also wait until it's approved as you can register for Limited Edition anytime as long as you are doing so with an application that was submitted to AppWorld by Jan 21st.
Hope that helps!
