BlackBerry application categories



I have an application almost ready to go, but it doesn't neatly fit into any of the application categories - it probably fits somewhere between games, social networking and productivity!


Is anyone aware of RIM planning to add new categories? Also, has anyone experienced problems getting apps approved due to them being in the "wrong" category?


Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: BlackBerry application categories

I would also like to see some different categories created.
My app is under the 'clocks and calculators' category. In that category there are no 'Clocks' or 'Calculators' and in my opinion it's not really an eye catching category that users would want to take a look at.
