Re: Rejected app for built for Blackberry without specific details

 

Hello

 

My application (a game) was rejected and I asked for details. I received an email and they told me that performance is fine. But the menu is too dark for their taste and they think that I shoul implement something like achievements, high scores (I have high scores, althoug not directly visible), online play...

 

The mail also says that they evaluate all apps submitted and they award a B4B to the ones that best qualifies in their criteria. So your application may be great but if there are other in the same category it may fail certification.

 

I think that is fine, but the problem is that they should say that in the check list.

 

It seems that for games its more important to have boring achievements than being fun. Of course I know that the ideal is having everything but it looks that if there is a compromise, better compromise in graphics, fun factor... instead of achievements and the like.

Re: Rejected app for built for Blackberry without specific details

Normally, about a day or two. But they have thoursands and thousands of apps in the queue. So right now, it will be nearly imposible to get an app in now, have it reviewed in time for the cutoff date.

Re: Rejected app for built for Blackberry without specific details

It's the same here and I am getting a bit nervous. Tomorrow was supposed to be the last day that you could apply for Built for BlackBerry for the 10k commitment. I tried reaching out to RIM, but no luck so far.

Re: Rejected app for built for Blackberry without specific details

My first submitted app which I was going to send for B4B testing isn't approved yet, but another one I submitted later is already approved. I hope we don't miss the deadline.

Re: Rejected app for built for Blackberry without specific details

If you submitted before the deadline, you are OK. If you get rejected and have to update to resolve a "minor" issue, dont expect it to be re-reviewed before the launch in 10 days. The good thing is that carriers are reporting not to start selling devices for a few weeks, so your app, if finally approved, still might make it in before consumers start their downloads.

Re: Rejected app for built for Blackberry without specific details

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.
