Sure. You don't have to do anything special. Converting a developer account from an individual to a business can be difficult due to DUNS numbers and stuff. Do you need a corporation? And do you need a business account? If your expected revenue is less than $30k a year, you don't even need a business license in Canada (Ontario at least).

Alright I guess I'm going to release my app and If it is more successful than I expected, I would incorporate.
Do you need a corporation?
Well I'm only going to need it for the limited liability benefit since the more successful you are, the more attention you get and higher are the chance of getting some liability issues. I read some stories like the Lodsys stories where they sue individual developers so I just wanted to be safe by making a corporation but it seems like a hassle for something that may be unsuccessful since right now I see it as a hobby not a serious investment.

It is likley best to discuss this with the right kind of attoney - they can suggest the best business model for you.
In the USA the choices include LLC, Sole Proprieter, Partner-ship, Sub-S corp and C-corp. I suspect that you have similar company structures in the Great White North.
You check the wiki at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Types_of_business_entity and scroll to the Canada section.
