Re: All Aboard BlackBerry Port-A-Thon

Hello,

 

Could you please clarify exactly what platform do we have to target to leverage this promotion?

 

Can we build a new app for the Playbook?
Just for smartphones running the Blackberry 10 OS?

 

Also, if I have a app for the Playbook currently on AppWorld, how can I know if it is eligible for this promotion? i.e. how to know if it has not been automatically ported and therefore not eligible.

 

Thank you!

I think apps currently available on AppWorld are not elegible for this offer. Maybe they want new apps to BB'10 platform. Please check the Terms to more info.

 

Regards.

Re: All Aboard BlackBerry Port-A-Thon

I have an existing PlayBook app (paid app).

 

I am making BB10 version.

 

For BB10 I am planning to have "Lite" version in addition to the existing paid version.

 

The Lite free version will be a new app ID.

 

Does the free version (which is a new app - but a lite version of existing app) count towards Portathon submission?

Re: All Aboard BlackBerry Port-A-Thon

I have a couple of apps on AppWorld.

Now I have build this new app.

 

This might be obvious for most of you, but what do I do now? Do I submit it to the App World? Where do I get the 100$ if my apps gets approved?

 

Where is the official site of the event? I signed up for the event days ago.
