Where to generate BB World promo codes?

This way we can create gif promotions :smileyhappy:

That's not a reason to reply, since there's a Topic Options menu just above the thread's first post, and you can select "Subscribe" directly from that without posting in the thread. :-)

I assume since you posted this during BB Live that you heard something about promo codes in BB World?

 

That's a future feature, as far as third-party devs are concerned. There was a session on BB World where some sort of roadmap was shown, and I believe the presenter indicated the initial implementation of promo codes was for internal use (and testing) only, possibly including some close partners, and the full roll-out for devs like us would be in the latter part of the year.

 

I might have remembered that incorrectly, so watch for the videos of the BBLive sessions to become available, starting next week. It was JAM79 by Paul Hainsworth: https://bblive.blackberryconferences.net/2013/connect/sessionDetail.ww?SESSION_ID=2747  I don't know exactly where the videos will show up just yet.

Hi Peter,

 

No, I have not seen anything on BBLive, it's just on recently updated OS 10.1, this comes with the redeem option, but by now it seems useless, isn't it?

No, it's not useless. As I said, the promo codes are being implemented initially for use by BlackBerry (and possibly some partners) for the first stage, so they will be issuing some promo codes which we can redeem. Later in the year it will be possibly for third-party devs to do the same.
