Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

This has nothing to do with the port-a-thon rewards, unfortunately.

Hi, I submitted 3 apps during the got game port-a-thon.

Two have been approved and are on sale in app world.

 

I received an email on Tuesday saying:

 

"Congratulations! Your BlackBerry®PlayBook app has successfully ported to BlackBerry® 10."

 

It doesn't say what app they are referring to and doesn't mention the $100 reward...

 

I don't know why I only got the one email when two of my apps have been approved. Is that normal?

 

The email had a code to 'claim your 500 reward points and ‘Porting to BlackBerry 10’ badge.'

 

Is the rewards email a seperate notification? Anyone know when payouts are happening?

Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

So what's the general consensus? Is there anyone I should contact or is it just a case of waiting? How will I know if my apps are regarded as eligible?

Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

I am sure they are overloaded with apps, and if your app will not make it to the store from first try, they will give you opportunity to resubmit it again.

Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

@pulseapps: I messaged RIM through the BB Dev Portal, and got a response that just stated the following: "Due to the amount of application we received during the port-a-thon it's taking a little longer to work through all the applications." They didn't provide any information regarding the rewards or anything I really wanted to know. I've still got several apps pending since the port-a-thon. I've messaged a few different people and received no other response other than that email. Its probably just a waiting game from here. I'm a little surprised they didn't anticipate this many apps. They were giving away cash and devices! Who wouldnt jump on this? -- will post if I hear more.

Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

Lou Gazzola got back to me on twitter to say:

 

"we had problems with our data. I believe we got everything. Email update going out this week."

 

So hopefully should receive some kind of update this week, sit tight until then I guess :smileyhappy:

Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

Is this still ongoing?  If not, is there going to be another session?

Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

Have you heard anything from RIM about getting your rewards?  I got my last app approved yesterday as well and haven't heard anything.

Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

Lou is sending out an update this week according to rumours.  I don't think anyone has received instructions on how to claim the awards.  I haven't.

Re: Got Game? Get Rewarded!

Lou confirmed that they will send out instructions on how to claim the rewards shortly after update.

Lou:


we are sending out emails this week to confirm rewards as we missed some games. And we'll start sending the rewards shortly.


So nobody received any instructions yet.
