BBM for Android and BBM for iOS to be released today
According to the beleaguered Canadian manufacturer, the best way to download BBM on your iOS or Android phone is to visit BBM.com from your iPhone or Android browser. Install the app, enter your email address and BlackBerry will send you a message when you are at the "front of the line" and can use BBM. You can follow the line at @BBM on Twitter If you already signed up with BBM.com, you can start using BBM immediately.
BlackBerry says its developers have been working around the clock and made some upgrades to BBM during the past month. This is a great idea from BlackBerry because instead of going to your phone's app store and putting up with a number of bogus BBM apps, you are going straight to BlackBerry to install it.
We should point out that the app will still be available within hours, from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
UPDATE: BBM for Android is now available from the Google Play Store and

Ugh, they were a little too late on this one. Already went elsewhere. Still wish them the best though!

A letter to BB, you are dead. Please act like it. You are not a zombie!!! BBM will not bring you back from the dead.

play store link is not working...It says 'item not found'...Looks like the old drama is going to repeat again

yes installed now...but whats the point of installing when you cant use it....they r asking to enter email and when you come in front row, they will intimate. Now wht the hell is this?
If you cant release a app on a large scale, why build it then??
Its like you have a girl on bed with you but you cant touch her..lol

I am still interested to see what this system is like. There are already so many other good options for free messaging/chatting, how will BBM for Android compare?
I don't think that BB is under any illusions that this free service will somehow make them relevant with the average consumer anymore, but it could bring up their brand value while they are looking for a buyout. And if this can keep a small piece of their legacy going forward, I'm just fine with that. I will be downloading and playing around with it this afternoon as soon as it is downloadable.....

I used on Android and it was way better than whatsapp, line kik and similar. I liked it very much, and I never used before, as I never owned a blackberry phone.

I will wait and install the official version. Not a cracked leaked one.
