BBM beta for Windows Phone sprays Raid to exterminate bugs
BlackBerry has sent out an update to take care of some bugs that have been afflicting the BBM for Windows Phone beta available for free from the Windows Phone Store. The laundry list of bugs that have been exterminated should make the messaging app run smoother and faster, but don't expect any new features with version 2.1.0.7.

The bugs taken care of include: Restarting BBM brings up the "Find friends" screen intermittently, BBM crashes when trying to add an image when adding a post, Feeds tab does not display splat on Channel or Contacts updates, Unable to add screenshots when adding a post with an image, Newly created Channel appears with a join icon on search, BBM freezes after sending or receiving a Sticker and BBM is slow to load featured/owned/subscribed Channels on HTC devices.

Unfortunately, even with the elimination of those bugs, the new build also has a number of known issues including one that crashes the app and prevents the user from creating a channel with the Nokia Lumia 530. Since this is the most popular Windows Phone of all time, it might behoove BlackBerry to make certain that this problem is fixed before releasing the app out of beta.

The Lumia 530 isn't the most popular Windows Phone of all time, the 520 is. You should fix that, Alan.

Glad to see that BlackBerry is ironing out the kinks in this Windows beta of BBM, but they have a ways to go before it's able to be released to the masses. Hope they work through this quickly.

I use BBM on my WP and it works great. Don't know what the bugs are unless it happens on underpowered phones like the 520. Granted, it's not the same experience as on BB.
