Release 2 of the same app which passed before failed certification RRS feed

  • Question


      I've created a small to-do task list kind of app. I uploaded the app to the Windows store and release 1 was passed every test and is in the store. Than I just updated my adunits with real ads numbers from MS advertising and submitted release 2 version.

      Release 2 failed 2 times saying "app is incomplete in functionality." I added a message dialog box where required and submitted the app third time. Now the reason for failed certification is given as follows:


    Commons reasons why apps fail this requirement:
    • The value or usefulness of the app is not clear.
    • The app is only valuable or useful in a subset of the languages that it claims to support.

    Notes from Testers:

    This app didn't appear to provide value or didn't seem useful to the reviewer.

    Does this mean that there is no chance to pass this second release? How do I take it from here?

  • Tell something more about your apps functionality.

    What are the difference between 1st release and 2nd release?

    Please explain in detail.

  •   There is no major difference between 1st and 2nd release.

     It is a simple to-do task list entry type app. A user can enter today's things to do on the page. I already see more than 10 downloads in a day, so it is a kind of useful app.

  • Can you tell me what is the new feature you added in your second release?

    Because thats what they are saying as "app is incomplete in functionality"

  • This happened to me a on third release, turned out I had updated external url links incorrectly, it can be as simple as that.

  • Yes Andy Sid,

    The links you specify should not be incomplete or should not lead to a 'under construction website'.
