Which should be submited to App world, simulator or device?



I use the webworks SDK for BB10 in command line to package and sign my apps. I found 2 subfolders named "simulator" and "device" generated.

My first question is that, should I submit the .bar file in "device" subfolder into the appworld?


Besides, the .bar in "simulator" folder works fine after deployed to the  BB10 simulator. I try to deploy the  .bar file in "device" folder to the simulator, but there are some error dialog popped up. I am not sure if this will happen when in physical device, for I have no alpha device yet.


Here is part of my config.xml

  <rim:orientation mode="landscape"/> 
  <rim:category name="games"/>   
  <icon src="images/icon.png"/>
  <content src="index.html"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.ui.dialog"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.invoke"/>
  <feature id="blackberry.app.orientation">
    <param name="mode" value="landscape"/>

I was actually about to ask the same question last night, so I'm glad you did for me Smiley Tongue

I have an alpha device and only use the "Device" .bar files to test my apps. Works fine on alpha devices.
