Nokia launches 'DVLUP Status,' a way to give developers recognition for their app achievements

Nokia DVLUP

DVLUP, Nokia's developer outreach program, has announced a new system to better incentivize and reward their most loyal, most successful app makers. Called DVLUP Status, it introduces three new, "highly coveted" badges — Specialist (bronze), Expert (silver), and Legend (gold). Earn them and you'll be rewarded with elite privileges galore. Here's the deal, according to the DVLUP blog:

  • Specialist: 10% discount on select rewards and campaigns, and a one-time 1,000 XP Bonus.
  • Expert: 25% discount on select rewards and campaigns, and a one-time 2,500 XP Bonus.
  • Legend: 35% discount on select rewards and campaigns, and a one-time 5,000 XP Bonus.

Nokia says developers will start seeing the badges pop up in their feeds very soon. So, keep an eye out and let us know when you see yours, and what status you've won!

Crazy requirements to get these badges...

ctafield says:

Yep, totally agree. I have more than the XP required for the lowest level, but not over a 6 month period which I think is the killer. The top level one is ridiculous. 

For 35% discount? I think it's quite reasonable points ammount. First one ain't so hard - just the matter of good app
