Re: Anyone have their App approved?

I see that you have all received app approval mails, but does anybody from you received any mail, with information that you qualify for free device? Just wondering, b/c at the beginning of this thread there are such mails mentioned?

No. Probably that email will be send few days after accepting applications. We will see.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

As I recall, if you got accepted, you got a free PB.  They would send an email confirming shipping once they are ready to ship.  So I wu=ould think that your gold ticket is that you got accepted and your posted on AppWorld.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

@jtgen: It is possible that your app will be approved to AppWorld but you will not qualify for PB (my worst nightmare, right after AppWorld rejection). It is my Cassandric guessing here, but I will not belive in anything before I hide my new PB under my pillow.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

Alas, approval does not necessarily mean that you get a free PlayBook. Allow me to quote from the T&C:

 

4. Application Criteria

4.1 Applications must provide a functionality that is considered useful to the end user, as determined by Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion. Applications must comply with the Guidelines and these Terms and Conditions. However, the following categories of applications are specifically excluded from eligibility for the Offer: 

(a) Web launchers or shortcuts; 

(b) Web browsers; and

(c) Applications that provide a simple, single function, such as playing noise or displaying a graphic. 

4.2 For the purposes of this Offer, if the Sponsor feels that the number of Applications in any given category appears to be excessive, the Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion, reserves the right to refuse to consider any further Applications submitted in that category.

 

 

In short, if your app is a web launcher, shortcut or browser you're out. If they think your app is too simple and provides a mere single function, you're out. If you release a good app, but there are already to many apps like it, you lose as well.

 

Still, these terms shouln't be a problem for most us. I find them rather loose, I expected them to be more strict when I was informing about this offer.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

Hey guys, is the review process: draft --> under review --> in test house --> approved?

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

That would be horrible to get accepted into app world, get your hopes up and then get told your not getting a PB.  It would be very upsetting.
