Certified BlackBerry Apps

One of the larger announcements to come out of the BlackBerry 10 Jam keynote was the fact the RIM will be setting up a certification program for developers who create quality applications and there is plenty of incentives for developers to sign up and participate. Aside from line-jumping the BlackBerry App World queue, developers who create a quality certified app as determined by a third-party and have it submitted to BlackBerry App World also qualify for an additional incentive from RIM. A $10,000 incentive to be more specific. If your app is certified quality, submitted and earns $1,000 on its own but not $10,000 -- RIM will cut you a cheque for the difference. RIM is placing a lot of focus on developers and this is only a small part of a what is $100 Million investment into their ecosystem.
