Yesterday, a few days after I submitted my app that was generated by FollowMyFeed (see previous blog post) I got the result. The app passed certification and is now available on the marketplace. Hooray!
But there’s one thing that’s kind off weird. The marketplace certification rules clearly say that every app should launch and be ready to use in under 5 seconds. The generated app takes 7-8 seconds on my Omnia 7. I can think of two reasons why the app still passed certification.
- The test team only used second generation devices and they boot up the apps faster
- They don’t care since FollowMyFeed is a Microsoft product and it would be bad for them if they shot down apps generated by their own software.
Anyhow, now you can have an app to read my blog and follow my Twitter feed. Get the app here
