On last week I updated my app and submit it ot QA team.
My app is on Ovi store for many months already and it's minor tweak.
Here's brief description of my app: it's yet another stopwatch, it's free
and it shows QGraphicsView in fullscreen mode, draws digits on it
and shows ads from smaato. That's all.
To my surprise my app failed QA review. And it failed it paritally!
It appears that my app is ok for old S60 devices and not acceptable
for new S3 devices.
QA team leave me this message:

I think this message and whole QA reiview result is a mistake. Message
tells something about theme and homescreen and text on it. But my content
isn't a theme. My app don't provide homescreen widgets. It's simple
Qt app which mostly consists of a QGraphicsView.

for everyone who interested and have powers to help here's my
ticket number from auto mailer response:
