Built for BlackBerry
Applications submitted to the Built for BlackBerry program will be subject to a range of tests and evaluations which they must pass before receiving the Built for BlackBerry designation.
The Built for BlackBerry evaluation process begins after your app has successfully passed the BlackBerry World Vetting criteria. Once submitted to the Built for BlackBerry program, your app will be reviewed by a testing team under the following criteria: User Benefits, User Experience, Performance, Security, and Service Integration. Games have additional criteria that will be evaluated as part of the testing process.
Your app needs to be developed using tools designed specifically for BlackBerry 10. These include IDEs or Frameworks that will compile an application that runs as an AIR, Native or WebWorks based BlackBerry 10 application.
Additional Frameworks such as PhoneGap and Appcelerator will be considered as long as they meet BlackBerry 10 UI guidelines and other Built for BlackBerry criteria.
Android applications, web launchers, simple apps that mobilize content with RSS feeds, flashlight apps, etc. are not eligible for the Built for BlackBerry program.
An application developed using a tool which automatically produces a significant portion of the features and functionality will not be eligible.
We want to provide users with genuine entertainment value, enhanced productivity, and/or enriched communications.
