    Item FAILED: Poor Description.

    Ciao,

    I just got a message from OVI QA about an app been failed for "Poor Description"

    FAILED: Poor Description.
    SUMMARY: Please change the description to improve the overall quality of the item. Please use this message for the description: “.............”

    Now while I might understand the suggestion if my description was way off, but I am certain it was good for what the app does.
    But now we are getting in OVI QA deciding if a description makes your app pass/fail QA?

    Any ideas or comments on this would be great since it's becoming a frustration. I have to thing about what OVI QA might think of my app description???!!!

    Re: Item FAILED: Poor Description.

    My advice in such a case is just to resubmit.

    Different ape, different sounds.

    Re: Item FAILED: Poor Description.

    I submitted some items one late night at the time when everything starts to blur on the screen and yeah I had some terrible misspellings, so QA saved us some embarrassment with this extra check. Overall I think this is a good thing.

    Hi,
    know that too well .

    Samsung REALLY saved me on sth like this once though - this would have been yet another embarrassing recall...

    I think bug hunting is developers' job for their app. It is not good for QA team to allow typo and so on. I am sure somebody might shout how Ovi allow this typo and so on. Opinion varies from people to people so much :-)

    Ciao,

    first of all, in the description there was no typos and I did not mention typos.
    They suggested changes that seemed coming out from a manual. So not the best suggestion!

    About finding a bug, it's always possible for one simple reason, I and probably 99.9% of developers, do not have all handsets so there might be issues with particular firmwares, hence QA !!!

    Re: Item FAILED: Poor Description.

    This is understandable that many developers have no devices. There is a service in Forum Nokia
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/Technolog...Device_Access/. Many test cases can be performed remotely.

    Ciao,

    I know about the RDA but it does not have all the devices and firmwares.
    My point is that description (beside typos and T&C) should not be covered by QA, it's wasting everyone's time.

    hey Alessandro, can you refer me to the app you had to modify the description field and what the differences were between your original desc and new desc?


    thanks,

    With all respect, Mahbub, but I differ here.

    At Samsung's, if a QA officer finds something he "feels strange"; he films it and shows. And then you, the developer, have to decide. And this is why I am willing to pay 30$ a pop, and also treat their QA as more than a bunch of useless nuissances on legs.
