New App still Pending Review after 5 weeks?

Hi I uploaded an app to the vendor portal back in January and it's still pending review almost 5 weeks later.


This is my first Blackberry app so I wondered, is this normal for it to take so long?

Re: New App still Pending Review after 5 weeks?

In normal conditions, it should only take a couple of days to get your app accepted.
But due to the Port-A-Thons held in the months November-December-January a lot of new apps have been submitted. And all these apps have to be reviewed by the BlackBerry World team, so this can take some time.

I guess that if it is your first application it can take a little longer, because the application itself has to be reviewed too (and not only the release).

I have several apps in BlackBerry World, and I see that my application approval times are a little shorter than other (newer) developers on this forum. I don't know what the reason is for this, but I guess it is because only the releases have to be reviewed, because my applications are already accepted.

With that I want to say that once your apps got accepted, in most cases the waiting times are shorter. And if the queue of the Port-A-Thon apps is handled, the review times will go back to a couple of days, instead of a couple of weeks.

PS: Pending Review for 5 weeks is not abnormal these days

A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)
