BlackBerry App World Carousel

Hi,

 

we're planning on submitting an app on the App World and I was just wondering if anybody has experience or some more insight on how to get on the App World carousel? Do you get there by achieving more downloads or based on your location?

 

Thanks for all info.

Re: BlackBerry App World Carousel

The App World FAQ which you can find somewhere in the vendor portal has some information pertaining to this.

Unfortunately, it appears to be mostly out of date. This was actually confirmed to me personally by Alex Kinsella at DevCon, and he said he would look into getting it revised. I haven't checked since then, though he changed to a different department after that so I have no idea where that particular initiative might be.

The only thing I know for sure is that some people have successfully been featured after emailing the address mentioned in the FAQ. That hasn't worked for me, apparently because there are mysterious unwritten rules preventing an app like Battery Guru from being featured, but I know others for whom emailing (with the required assets included) got them featured. (This was for PlayBook apps.)

Re: BlackBerry App World Carousel

after your apps is approved  just email appworld marketing with your app info as described in the FAQ or goto the Vendor portal in the support page you can send request for feature.
