I submitted two apps last week. Done a few updates since then but still waiting for the approval process. The longest it took me last year was four days. It would be nice to see some more communication from them as they wanted the apps to be there at launch, but I'm reading a lot of people are waiting since January...

I got the email indicating why my app was denied. I received it within 48 hours of my app being denied. Turns out it was a minor issue that I had already corrected in an uploaded second version, which also had been denied. I have resubmitted and hopefully it will get reviewed faster this time around.

My first app was approved today and got the approval email within the hour. Let's see how long it takes them to review the second one, submitted 48 hours later but I'm confident it won't take too long.

They have worked through my upgrades and one new submission. I recompiled all my applications for the latest SDK when it came out. I have only received on email, the others just quietly went on sale on the store front. I submitted one new application this weekend. When I went to enter it into the LE upgrade I got the "A submission for the Limited Edition Trade-up program has already occurred for pin..." message. I sent Email as instructed and was told by Developer Relations my app (one of them I suppose) had been approved and was referred to BrandAlliance. They said they had no record any of my apps were approved but would ask BlackBerry to correct this and I should have my Email in two days or so.
All this to say there is still some turmoil in the application approval process, for approving applications and for approving LE device submissions. They either underestimated the take up on the programs or underestimated the amount of work managing them would be. The good news is that they extended the submission deadline for the LE upgrade program to Feb 28, and I just read somewhere that you have until March 28 to make changes if needed to get them accepted into BlackBerry World, and approved for the LE upgrade. The LE devices won't start shipping until then so what ever happens I'll be holding onto my DA until at least the end of March.
