I was just wondering, if I have an app called MyApp which is available on Blackberry World for pre 7.0 devices, and I decide to make a BB10 version of MyApp, why am I not allowed to submit it as a separate product but with the same name?
I've recently had my app rejected for the above reason. The thing is, it is not technically an upgrade to the pre 7.0 version of MyApp because it will never be compatible with those devices, the architecture is completely different. This should in fact be treated as a new product, so why can't I do this??

You could call it MyApp10 or MyApp V.10
I think they may have denied it so it wouldn't cause confusion, or possibly issues with the system with having the same name

I was thinking the same thing, but is renaming it really necessary? Imagine having Facbook10 on your Blackberry, kinda weird. I would really like to keep the same name if possible, I don't see how this could cause any confusion to users as BB10 users and pre 7.0 users are different in a way.
Also, why release a BB10 as an upgrade to pre 7.0? Pre 7.0 users will never be prompted to upgrade to the BB10 version of MyApp, right? So where's the confusion.
Sorry about this, but I feel like I'm wasting a lot of time. I thought the coding itself would've been the more challenging part, not the submission process. I can't get my BB10 app onto the store because my PackageID of my BB10 version apparently needs to match the PackageID of my pre 7.0 version, and I have no idea where to find that.
Thanks for the reply btw!

I've tried but am unable to upload my .bar file, I keep getting an error message:
I'm at the end of my rope, don't know what to do.

I think Peter's idea would actually work, when you go to submit a release instead of BBOS choose QNX, then selected the devices you want the .bar to support

I've tried that, keep running into trouble:
