newbie - device support selection during upload question



I'm a new BB developer and was wondering if I need to submit separate BAR files for Torch and PlayBook devices or can a single BAR file support both devices.


Can I change the supported devices after the app has been uploaded? When I uploaded my first app I selected QNX 2 (for PlayBook), but the app will also run on the Torch 9800 devices.


If I had selected Torch 9800 during the upload, would that also include the PlayBook products?

Re: newbie - device support selection during upload question

The BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 OS run applications packaged as BAR files.  BlackBerry OS 7.x and lower run applications packaged as COD files.


You can't mix the two types.


You can have the same application in App World support both types of devices.  You just need to upload both the COD and BAR files to the same application in App World.
