First of all, I love blackberry 10 development platform.
-Good docs and examples
-Easy to develop using Cascade
-Good tools: eclipse plugin and simulator.
However, Review process is SLOW. First app release took MONTH and only after I posted issue on the forum. Next release approval took 3 weeks only. I made a mall mistake and had to resubmit and wait another MONTH.
Now it got even worse. My latest release was just supposed to change from paid to free version. It got approved but still stayed as 'paid'. Submitted vendor support ticket 3 weeks ago. Still no reply...
I have another 2 applications in the works but decided to stop development and move one. Good luck to anyone and hopefully you will not get frustrated as me.

It's understandable to vent once in a while but I wouldn't stop developing for BlackBerry just because of something like this.
I know it can get very frustrating at times but waiting for APS to be approved just gives you time to develop more.
I forgot to mention, I just had two updates approved in less than 24 hours. I thought it would take weeks... It didn't always take that long, it was usually two or three days at the most.

The review process has been really slow lately, but this was because of the port-a-thons and the release of BB10, review times have improved a LOT lately, also, if for some reason your app review or support ticket doesn't get a response, just contact BlackBerry by email, I have found that they are very helpful with these things.
