Extending the Deadline for Built for BlackBerry

Uncategorized

As you may have read, we’ve held a couple port-a-thons over the last few weeks. The response and interaction from developers has been nothing short of amazing.

Now that the dust is settling from this weekend’s Last Chance Port-A-Thon, we’re excited to announce that over 19,000 applications were submitted to BlackBerry World over the weekend. This continues to show an overwhelming level of commitment from developers to the BlackBerry 10 platform.

We’ve heard your questions and concerns about the Built for BlackBerry deadline. The fact is, the volume of apps being submitted for review and entry into the program has been remarkable. Due to that large volume of apps, we are extending the deadline:

  • Apps that have been submitted on or before 8pm EST on January 21st,2013 may qualify for the $10k Developer Commitment if the developer agrees to the official terms and conditions and passes Built for BlackBerry testing.
  • Developers may apply for Built for BlackBerry review and the $10k Developer Commitment offer in the BlackBerry World Vendor Portal by 8pm ET Feb 18th
  • The qualifying sale dates for the 10k Commitment is 12:01am ET, March 4 2013 to 11:59pm ET, March 3 2014

Don’t forget to review the Built for BlackBerry criteria before you apply and just a friendly reminder that BlackBerry App Generator and Android apps do not qualify for Built for BlackBerry or the $10k Commitment.

    […] RIM has announced that it is extending the deadline for Built for BlackBerry after receiving more than 19,000 applications. One of several incentive programs launched by RIM to attract developers for BlackBerry 10, Built for BlackBerry is meant to highlight apps that have “passed an added level of evaluation” and will receive extra marketing from RIM through several channels. The Ontario-based company, which recently re-branded its store from BlackBerry App World to BlackBerry World, also held a series of “Port-A-Thons” to help developers port apps built for other platforms over to BB10. Last weekend’s event brought in more than 15,000 apps, according to the company. There may be as many as 104,000 apps available by the time BB10 launches on January 30. […]
