BBM for Android and BBM for iOS to be released today
0. phoneArena 21 Oct 2013, 12:05 posted on
About a month after the first attempt failed, BlackBerry is planning on trying once again to get BBM for iOS and BBM for Android available for users of those two platforms, on Monday, BlackBerry crowed about the 1.1 million Android users that installed an unreleased version of the app back in September. It was that unofficial version, along with a number of bogus BBM apps put up in the Google Play Store, that made BlackBerry's task too difficult to complete at the time... Meanwhile, more than 1 million Apple iPhone users have sideloaded BBM on their phone.

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.

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.
