Releasing BBM connected apps through BlackBerry World

If you have separate, optimized versions of your app for BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry 7 (or earlier) and BlackBerry 10, there are some things you need to consider when adding BBM connected apps to the vendor portal. Typically, you assign a separate SKU to each app that you add to the vendor portal. However, if you want your app to be able to communicate across platforms, you must assign the same SKU to each variant of your app. To have a BBM connected app that is running on a BlackBerry 7 smartphone communicate with the same app running on a BlackBerry 10 smartphone, they must both have the same SKU in BlackBerry World. You can still submit different screen shots, icons, feature image, descriptions, and keywords for each variant of your app when using the same SKU. You can learn more about Adding and managing apps on the BlackBerry World vendor portal website.
