Here at BlueVia, we are constantly learning from all the feedback we receive from developers using the platform. A common theme to the feedback is the complexity of the current website and our processes.
One of the key areas of confusion is the beta catalogue. Many developers do not understand the difference between the beta catalogue and the ‘Launch to Store’ process, which allows you to publish your apps directly to Telefonica’s App Stores.
Therefore we have taken the decision to remove the beta catalogue functionality from BlueVia with immediate effect.
This will not affect your use of BlueVia or affect your ability to make revenue from your apps and services. The functionality to enable you to launch your apps directly into Telefonica’s live apps stores is unaffected. Also note there is currently a free app accreditation offer running, meaning any apps or services that you publish directly to Telefonica’s App Stores through BlueVia would be free of charge to you.
If you have any further questions or feedback, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for continuing to use and support BlueVia. We continue to listen to our community about how we can improve the platform, so please contact us with any other suggestions.
