Re: questions about app deployment and vendor account

um.. my logic behind is that, if I distribute the app over the air, app world should have no control to my app, so app review from app world and the vendor account is therefore not needed. is it correct?

 

one more question, if the app need to be approved by app world, how long does it take?

 

sorry for the silly questions, i really don't understand the procedures after reading the developers guide.

Re: questions about app deployment and vendor account

You only need a vendor account if you wish to distribute using App World.  The following document explains how you can distribute BlackBerry Smartphone applications.
