    Of course it's not a scam, lol. Winners will get their money for sure. My complain is the lack of information from them and when I get an info, it feels like excuses for lazing around.

    Tizen ecosystem lack lot of organization, and this from the coding of the OS itself (Tizen OS is reportedly full of security holes), and the Tizen Store (the app discoverability, searching, app validation system...), and the apps monetization, and the lack of informations and miscommunication about challenges, to the delays and complicated steps placed ahead of developers to receive their prizes... Seriously, Tizen team have a lot to do to make Tizen ecosystem mature and competitive...
    I really hope that Tizen team will reorganize they-selves to make Tizen a serious alternative to Android and iOS, not another failed OS like Bada, BB10, WP...

    Do any of you guys send e-mails to Tizen to ask about the payments? I think if we don't force them like this every few days, they won't do anything. I am sending e-mails every 3-4 days.

    Edit: What I meant by forcing them was, instead of complaining here which results nothing, we could e-mail them and let them know that.

    Nope, we trust you as the lead.
    Let's wait till month end and let them do their due diligence, before taking drastic actions. e.g, mass chasing for payments...

    Has anyone got the confirmation e-mail for April winners?
    "My Entry" on the incentive page says "Winner" but no e-mail yet?

    Good news at last: "The review of the documents for incentive provision has been completed, and the incentive will be provided within next week."

    Since some of you have already received the money I am very positive that it will work out. Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the devs here, you have been very supportive and I hope you (we :D) will win some more!

    yes , received mail for April Incentive. But this time they didn't mention how many apps won for this month in total :) :)
    Earlier they used to mention the count of apps who will receive incentive. Probably they just want to hide the stuff now.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Just asked out of curiosity, as I don't see explicitly being mentioned this any where in tizen terms and conditions.

    I have a Tizen device, and I know my game was sometimes 97th in the top free, but that doesn't mean the game was in the top100 more downloaded game for 1 complet month.

    Tizen is doing something strange , any application reach 20,000 install suddenly the daily installs decrease 95% of the usual daily installs ,it happened with me with 3 apps , the installs went from 4000 daily to 100 suddenly , be careful

    Tizen just wait 20'000 downloads before remove the game from "New free" or "New paid" to let the chance for others new games.
    If your game is good, your downloads will stay above a 1000 downloads per day.

    For Android and iOS, a game will stay in the New games only few hours.

    I think the treshold is going down instead of up. On Feb there wasn't any limitation on new free apps and games. Now they won't let any game stay in there after 20k downloads.

    FYI : May, Top 80's around 42k.
    Assuming 300 per step, 20x300 = 6000. Position 100, approx 36k

    We didn't win with 35.4k, sooo close :(
    Had 4k DLs, then droppend to few hundred, then back to 2k (for two days) then dropped again to ~200. If IAPs actually worked, then those 20k "free" downloads in the beginning really would be something, only if ...

    Yes, I am in the May top100, it's my first time :).
    I have to work hard to have my new game in the July Top100.

    For June, I think my download will be not enough :( , only 1000downloads per day in average for the moment.

    I received the Tizen email about what I had to send by email and by mail.
    I have already everything and sent everything by email.
