I just got the approval email from Blackberry, submitted the app 30th of Jan and 2 versions since to fix a bug and sign the bar.
Thank god thats over, time for the next app.
Also thanks to peter9477 who help with a bug at the start with ftp.

My brother's app got approved, but he never received the free PB offer email... It's been over a week now. It was a periodic table of elements (chemistry). (When you click on the element the info pops up)
I guess they thought it was too simple?

I very much doubt that was considered too simple, compared to some others we've seen.
I don't consider a week to be too long a wait (though I would check the spam folder etc).
I think the eligibilty requirement is checked by people other than those who approve, and I strongly suspect they are either working only intermittently, or even that it's just one person...
Anyway, I don't believe we've heard from anyone who can positively state that their app was considered NOT eligible, so I see no reason to make assumptions when you have no evidence.

anyone else waiting for an approval get an email with the subject like "BlackBerry App World Vendor Update" and (sorry any women offended) get the biggest pair of blue balls? really thought it was an update to the status of my app - so disappointing haha

@JohnP: LOL thats hilarious! and yah those BlackBerry emails tend to have images that are huge file sizes. On my bb i only do text emails for that reason! (non-3G areas)
its almost like they were teasing us haha

heh, I already got my approval, but I was worried it was like "Well the Playbook is being delayed" or something of equalyl horrific news. Maybe even "we're revoking your free playbook" NOOO!! BAD DREAM BAD DREAM!

I too already have my app accepted (well the first one anyway) but I thought the email was something else. I was sleeping and my phone receiving the email woke me up so I checked it and got all excited over nothing. I thought it was saying that the PlayBook App Store was now open, which in my head thought we were one step closer to release day and ultimately getting our free PlayBooks. I guess I shouldn't read emails when I'm half asleep.

Waiting since late December. Nothing. Got an email from RIM. Oh boy, oh boy. How exciting.
BlackBerry App World Vendor, BlackBerry App World Now Available In Over 100 Markets
Oh **bleep**, I continue to wait. I should have waited until early February to submit. I'd have been approved by now. Guess no one in app testing understands the concept of a FIFO queue. ;-(
