How to become a featured app

We've submitted our application to become a featured app over a month ago, but want to see what we can do to help get accepted.  Any hints or help out there?

Did you see this that covers the criteria?

If you do hear back one way or another, would be interested in how long it finally took.

Yup!  Followed those to a "T."  Will be glad to tell you how long it took to hear back. So far, since we submitted on February 16, about 68 days and counting!

Re: How to become a featured app

Appreciate the input. I would be glad if we get featured within 3 months because that would mean that we would be up for a feature within the next couple of weekts. Thanks again for the message.

Re: How to become a featured app

Not every app submitted for featured becomes a featured app, don't take it as granted.

 

I personally have submitted 7 apps and only one got featured.

Re: How to become a featured app

Understood, but if you try ABUKAI Expenses, you'll understand that it jus HAS TO BE FEATURED!

Seriously though. Try it yourself by downloading it from the BlackBerry App World and you automatically get 3 expense reports for free. Everyone hates doing expense reports (We get emails from around the world!  Even from the Cayman Islands!)  With ABUKAI, you only have to take pictures of your receipts. Then push submit. That's all!  No more typing or saving receipts!

 

There's no way easier, so if you hate doing Expense Reports, you gotta love it!
