It was suggested by someone on some thread a few weeks ago that once you get your app approved that you add it to your signature block so others can see what developers are doing and possibly have them as a resouces if someone else has a question on how someone did something (along with the app world link). Makes for good marketing too.

can i just say that this thread is my arch nemesis / reminder that i have mere weeks to submit my application. *mumbles* and that i'm jealous of those who have submitted already.

Just submitted my first BlackBerry App.
Status: "Pending Review +"
I originally anticipated to finish the app by Jan 7th, but I gave it more time, as long as it took to make the best I can.
Now I will be working on a second one, like others, to increase chances of successful approval to App World.

Congratulations to everyone who has had their app approved! I'm dying to get some kind of response from them soon. I was just wondering if it's normal that the status hasn't changed at all since I've submitted my app on December 16. The status is at 'waiting on test house'. Hope this is normal. Anyway, good luck to everyone!

Yeah, the only reason I'm able to keep my patience is because I know there's others that submitted weeks before me and they haven't recieved a response either. So RIM isn't singling me out

I'm scared that RIM wont approve my app and the work will be for nothing
This anticipation is killing me!!

@gyubok, if it's rejected, look on the bright side. You've learned a whole lot, and if you managed to submit something functional, then no matter what you are now a PlayBook developer.
You can take the feedback (which I would hope RIM gives you), or share your rejected app with others to get their feedback, and rebuild it better. Resubmit even if it's after the deadline, sell it for a buck a shot and soon you'll be buying a PlayBook with your earnings.
It's not like anyone who gets an app accepted is actually making good money for their time, when measured in dollars an hour. (Except maybe those lucky/smart SOBs who are just porting existing apps!)
(I admit the brag factor would be pretty nice though.)
