BBM connected status

Hi guys,

 I wonder what features has an application to have to be *BBM connected* and sit in respective category on the App World?

Re: BBM connected status

You may have to let RIM know your application is BBM connected. The best way to do so is by saying it in your application description.

Re: BBM connected status

but don't you know which features should be in the app? I mean if I have *invite to download* only, will it be nominated as *bbm integrated* as well?

Re: BBM connected status

I believe it is at RIM's discretion to decide which apps end up in the BBM connected category. As far as I recall, RIM has no official list of features required for apps to show up in the BBM connected category.

Re: BBM connected status

thanks Smiley Happy maybe a bit offtopic, but have you seen games with *bbm scoreboard*? Or maybe you know how to implement this?

Re: BBM connected status

You'd either need to keep track of the scores within your app or at a server.
