"When we launched CrackBerry.com 10 years ago, we set out to make it a fun and useful destination where BlackBerry Smartphone owners could share their excitement and learn to unleash the full potential of their BlackBerry. A decade later, the CrackBerry community is as active and passionate as ever and I know our knowledgeable members and volunteers will be excited to welcome and assist more BlackBerry owners with their questions."
I have been researching licensing my application with bb 10. Is there anything in the api which is equivant to RIM_APP_WORLD_LICENSE_KEY (in java) so I can check to see if the app has been licensed via app world?
I would really appreciate a bit of clarity on this matter.
There's no API for that yet, and none expected before launch, unfortunately. It's the same situation with the PlayBook... the dynamic and pool license models do result in a license key being stored on the device, but it's inaccessible to our apps. The only option you have for now is to instruct the user to copy/paste it from App World.
In the PlayBook, if the user goes to the app's entry in App World after downloading it, the license key will be visible there, and they can tap on the text to copy it to the clipboard. They could then go into your app and paste it somewhere, and your app would store it and of course validate it in some fashion.
I consider that approach highly undesirable, however, so I'm not using any of it at the moment. Apparently we need to continue to be patient...
