BBM for Android and BBM for iOS now available from the App Store and Google Play Store
For those who don't feel like going to BBM.com and registering your email address before getting the OK from BlackBerry to run BBM, the long awaited messaging app is now available from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Those who only know of BlackBerry from reading about the company's problems, or from doing a quick once-over of a BlackBerry model at a phone store, will be surprised at how much thought the Canadian based OEM put into BBM in the first place.

Not only will you know if some one you are corresponding with is writing you a response, you can even tell if a message you wrote has been delivered and read. BBM is open 24/7/365 so there is no need to open the app. And the famous BlackBerry PIN system means that your phone number or email address do not have to be given away.

Right now, BBM allows you to chat with up to 30 users at a time and you can share documents, voice notes, files, photos and more. Eventually, BBM Video Chat and Screen Sharing will be available with an update down the road.
