RIM let me know that they are now accepting developer applications for evaluation to have their apps included in the Application Storefront. They are planning for a launch in the Spring and are now accepting applications for review. They are asking for both business AND customer focused applications as long as they do not require customization and integration services.
Any developer around the world is invited to submit their applications for consideration. It makes me wonder how RIM is going to decide what to include…
Some details below:
In order to have your application considered for the upcoming BlackBerry Application Storefront, you must create a vendor account and submit the application for evaluation by RIM.
Create a vendor account following these easy steps:
- Agree to the Developer Application Evaluation Agreement
- Enter your personal contact information
- Enter your company contact information
- Associate your PayPal account with your vendor account. You must have a verified PayPal account in order to participate in the BlackBerry Application Storefront. A PayPal account is required for both consumer purchases and payments back to vendors.
Once your account credentials have been confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how you can begin submitting applications for evaluation by RIM.
Applications must adhere to the Application Storefront Vendor Guidelines in order to be considered for inclusion.
