BBM for Android scores at least 1 million downloads; BBM for iOS is number two at iTunes
So how much in demand was BBM? According to Google, the best that it could say was that a range between 1 million people and 5 million people had downloaded the app in the first 24 hours. Of the nearly 93,000 who left a comment on the Google Play Store, 69% gave BBM for Android a 5 star rating. The app works on those Android models powered by Android 4.0 or higher.
As for the iOS version of the app, it soared to the number 2 position among free apps available on iTunes. Trailing Bitstrips, an app that allows you to create comic book versions of you and your friends, BBM could still make it to the top once word spreads that the app is available.
