Re: Mobile app certification

What do you mean by 'certifying'? Do you mean to get your COD files signed so you can run your app on real devices? Or do you mean to get your app into the App World Store?


In case of the latter one: you will first need to sign your app, for that you need signing keys from RIM. They cost $ 20. Then you need to create a vendor account with RIM for  App World and get approved, which can take a couple of days. If you are a private developer, they will ask you for a notary form to be completed to prove your identity. This notary form costs mony and the sign-up to App World as a vendor will cost you initally $ 200, too.


Once approved, you can then submit applications for approval by RIM. That can take up to 10 business days. You need to make sure that your application follows the guidlines found here: https://appworld.blackberry.com/isvportal/home/guidelines.seam?cid=191706
