I just got rejected as well with my Webworks/bbui app. The problems they explained were "performance issues". I wonder if there is any webworks app that got accepted for BFBB? I don't know what to tweak any more to make it faster. I sure hope the testers are not testing on DevAlpha A? Also i'm seeing crazy screen flickering issues in my app when e.g. the browser is open or after invoking the browser from my app.
Whats the name of you App, willyyr?
Could you past here the exact statement why it was rejected?
There is a possiblity they meant stuff like user interaction, useability, user benefit or how easy it is to understand what the Application does with the phrase "Application performance" - or, since AIR sounds always a lot like Flash by Adobe to me it is really a performance issue. So I would try it at my own device. I hope it is currently a free App. ;-)
Do you use a Dev Alpha A or B?

The exact quote from rejection email
. There are performance issues with your app, mainly that the app does not run smoothly. · Please add more functionality like accessible to use the maps directly from the app (navigate the user how to reach the destination). · BlackBerry 10 UI Guidelines · Integration of one BlackBerry Service
I must admit the functionality is very basic at the moment so i do understand if that was the general problem. I'm planning on adding in-app purchases once the payment api becomes available for webworks. Also i use bbm integration and bbui which basically removes 3+4 i guess? The performance on my dev alpha A imho is ok too and should be great on dev alpha b. I also don't really get what 2. wants to tell me. The app is showing a map inside the app already and navigating to the selected location doesn't really fit the use case of this app.
The app is free and you can try it if you like. Feedback is greatly appreciated http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/20

Strange, my DevAlpha is currently unable to connect to the store. Server maintenance? Last update before the launch? ;-)
So, I can't test your App at the moment but I saw last week a documentation to invoke the BB10 MAP API. I guess at the final device you are able to pass a routing directly to the built in navigation software.
Sorry, no AIR, but perhaps a point from which you are able to find it for your Framework:

My app was rejected too.
Playbook version of this app was listed on the first page in app world few times and has many good reviews.
Testing team sent me e-mail with such description:
"Having reviewed your application against the Built for BlackBerry program we are unable to accept the application at this present time based on the scope of its current functionality. We value your participation and would encourage you to re-apply with a future iteration of this application.
Specifically we found your application does not meet the criteria as outlined in user benefits and would encourage you to consider enhancements like:
Once issue(s) are been corrected, you are welcome to resubmit."
I've asked what could I improve in the UI but I didn't get answer yet.
It is using flow, connects with BBM and has QNX UI controls.
I don't know what can I do better :/
I didn't port any application to iOS or Android yet and I hoped it could be Build for BlackBerry :/
Now time is running out and I think it will not be possible :/

It's luko LAN Remote.
I am not sure if You can download it for dev alpha because I marked only all touch devices when I was publishing it.
Now I've changed this release to be available for dev alpha too but I am not sure if this will work.
If it will and You'd like to check it I can add Your account to sandbox (It is paid app).
Few screenshots are here:
I know that I must change ActionBar in Landscape mode and probably replace flex component from connection window. I am not sure if that's all.
