BlackBerry App World Diary: Lessons Learned from a Developer’s Perspective

Comment

To be able to join the BlackBerry Developers Challenge 2009 it was required to join App World – so I did last summer. I was honored that my application FileScout was chosen as one of the 16 finalists for Developer Challenge’s Sweet 16.

Being at the 2009 Developers Conference was a great pleasure. Meeting the App World Vendor support in person was one of my highlights. It’s always nice to meet the people with whom you are in contact with over email.

The first update of my FileScout application in App World had some issues and it was suggested to me at Dev Con that I should wait until RIM fixes some bugs with App World until I release my next update. This was back in November of 2009.

In March of 2010, I made FileScout a freemium application (free to try with paid features). In order to change to this model, the premium version of FileScout required registration codes. I waited an additional month to get any news from RIM concerning the App World enhancements that would help the update process, but even after 5 months since it was mentioned at Dev Con nothing had changed. I couldn’t wait any longer and on the 20th of April, 2010, I submitted the updated FileScout to App World.
