It’s an exciting day for current and new BlackBerry developers. Up till now code signing a BlackBerry application required developers to pay a fee but RIM has made code signing keys available for free for both the Smartphone and Tablet OS! In their latest post on the BlackBerry Developer’s Blog they announced that the BlackBerry Signing Tool for the Tablet OS is now available:
We’re excited to announce that you can now sign apps using the latest version of the BlackBerry® Tablet OS SDK. Below is a quick overview of how to get started with application signing on the BlackBerry Tablet OS. Be sure you have installed the most recent version of either the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe® AIR®, or the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ SDK for BlackBerry Tablet OS. You can download the latest version of either SDK from the BlackBerry Tablet OS Application Development site.
Before you start signing your application, you have to register with the Research In Motion® (RIM®) Signing Authority. Fill out the web form – registration is free, but you need a credit card to complete the registration process. A $1 hold will be placed on your account to verify the credit card. The hold is released after your credit card company accepts the transaction, and the hold will not appear on your monthly bill. When the registration process is complete, you receive a CSJ registration file via email.
If you’re a developer who’s wanted to publish an app on the BlackBerry Platform, here’s your chance to do it all for free! With this fee-waiver included, I believe the entire developer/vendor process is now free till March 15th, the deadline for the free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet offer. For more info and to register go to blackberry.com/SignedKeys or read more at RIM’s Dev Blog.
