My app was rejected because it does not meet BlackBerry 10 UI Guidelines...
It is fully built with bbUI.js with all standard BB10 UI screen elements
A bit funny isn't it? Whom should I blame to, Tim Neil or BFB test team? :-)

The only exception to the UI and Service rules are games as they may not make sense in that kind of app
Having said that there was a really good session in Amsterdam where they explained how using BBM was worth it in just about any app = worth listening to if you've got a spare hour
