Registration and Submission Fees Waived for App World Developers (Limited Time)

RIM let us know at DevCon that they will be waiving registration and submission fees for App World. The offer is only for a vague “limited time” but it includes both new and current App World developers. I think this is a great push for RIM to get developers to create and submit apps and further lowers the barrier to entry. I heard a rumor that if the program takes off they will make it permanent.
The exact wording for the offer is:

BlackBerry App World limited time offer: registration and submission fees are waived.

You can sign up free and submit apps using the normal channels at this link

While they were presenting one of the RIM reps mentioned that BlackBerry Code Signing keys would also be free for a limited time but I cannot find any confirmation of that. I will update the post if I find more.

  1. Thanks for the info!!
    I’ve to admit that I see original content like this only on BerryReview.

  2. Thanks! There is a ton going on here at devcon and its hard to keep up. Trying to figure out the story with the free code signing keys.

  3. They seriously need to update their infrastructure, not just their devices and OS…
    This is what you get when trying to use Chrome on the dev page:
    “NOTE: This site is only supported on Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or newer as well as Mozilla Firefox 2 or newer.”
    It’s just ridiculous.

  4. Thanks for the Info – just saved me 40,- USD

  5. Awsome! They should make it permanent! And if they could also reduce their cut of 30% at least after a developer has sold some mininum number of apps, it would be very helpful. Blackberry app market is relatively small compared to their competitors and they should do more to make it profitable for developers.

  6. Omg. I’m signing up tonight!!

  7. This is great news!
