Does Blackberry truly test and validate new Apps - and the provenance of the developers?

[ Edited ]

I recently spent £1.00 on "Live Bus London" by "Digital_Dynamics". They also produce the GumTree App.

 

http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/117791/?lang=en 

 

Both Apps are reported by users (including myself ) as essentially utterly non-functional. £1 is taken but NOTHING functional is delivered. Support is provided by [Removed third party information to comply with Community Guidelines and Terms and Conditions of Use.] which is a website specialising in children's car seats!

 

The website link on BB Appworld simply takes you back to BB Appworld and not to anything to do with the company, or developer.

 

I did track down a website " http://www.digdynamics.com/Website/Site/Index.aspx " which claims on this page " http://www.digdynamics.com/Website/Site/Menus.aspx?menuid=3&menuName=Services " to do BB Apps but with no links to apps they develop.

 

I am actually quite worried at what information about me this dubious website ( with arab connections ) has captured about me from BB Appworld.

 

I think BBAppworld should shut this crowd down immediately.

Re: Does Blackberry truly test and validate new Apps - and the provenance of the developers?

this is far from an isolated incident - and nothing is done to ensure the "validity" of the developers (or the apps) as far as I have seen -- I have been scammed by some with no action taken by BB in response. Think about this in the bigger picture of what RIM is facing right now: they cannot afford to do anything to scare away developers (whether they are legitimate "businesses" or not) given the precarious financial / corporate situation. 

 

as of yesterday Celestica announced it was ceasing production for RIM... how do you think legit developers look at news such as that?
