My app is rejected from the Built for BlackBerry program - but why ?



I have just recevied this :


Here is one that we recommend you fix:

Please add more features and functionality since right now it does not meet the standards of the program.

Once this issue has been corrected we will be able to complete the next steps that will allow your application to flow through the remaining Built for BlackBerry testing process.

 Is it a bad joke ?


My applications are "PlayCloud 10" and "PlayCloud 10 Free".


The application is available in the BlackBerry world.


All the criterias (and more) are reached.


Do you have really tested all the features ? Do you have tested the print feature ?


Here my changelog :


• German and russian translation
• New print feature (IPP support & PDF/PS)
• Local & System view
• SD-Card support
• Dropbox support
• Box support
• Google Drive support
• Skydrive support
• OpenDataSpace support (experimental)
• Webdav support
• FTP(SSL)/SFTP support
• Background transfers
• Internationalization support
• Network WiFi & Cellular choice (roaming management)
• Transfers progress status
• Transfers complete notification
• BlackBerry and third party applications integration (Invokation)
• Mutli-select feature
• Open, Copy, move or delete files
• File details view (with comments)
• Image and audio thumbnails support
• EXIF metadata image support
• Network cache data
• Help embedded
• BlackBerry Messenger integration
• Pinch zoom feature


Also, the application is available in french, english, german, polish and russian !


More features are on the roadmap ; but with missing and issues in the current Gold SDK ; it's difficult to do better !!!

Sample: the ListView cascades object is fully bugged ! unusable !


I'd like to understand, why the app is rejected ? What features do you want to add ?

Re: My app is rejected from the Built for BlackBerry program - but why ?

That has got to be wrong. Ask them to recehck and verify that they are responding to the correct application. I got a rejection at first saying it was not using the BB UI. I told them it was and they responded that they made a mistake. Might help to send them a screen shot of your app so they can visually verify they are reviewing the correct app.

Since this is new, my guess is that a repeatable process is not fully in place just yet.

I download your app. Very nice. If this app does not get approved as "BFBB", then we are all in trouble.
