RIM has started emailing developers to inform them that its BlackBerry App World sign-up process is now much more streamlined; a welcomed change, we’re sure. Before the program tweak, RIM required a notarized proof of identity — yes, you’d literally have to get a document notarized before RIM would accept you as a developer into BlackBerry App World. After a rather lengthy blog post by a frustrated developer, the Canadian company seems to have gotten the message loud and clear. We’re not sure why Research In Motion felt that they could make their app store harder to sign-up for when they are notably behind Apple and Google in that area, but again, it’s great to see some progress being made here.
