    Default BBM Arrives for Apple's iPhone


    BlackBerry has (finally) brought its BlackBerry Messenger service - or BBM, as its known - to iOS and Android. Astonishingly, we've been waiting for BBM to turn up on the world's leading mobile operating systems for five long months.

    As we know, the Canadian smartphone maker was expected to launch the BBM messaging service on iOS and Android in September. But the cross-platform chat applications were delayed when a leaked version was distributed, effectively upending the company's formal release schedule.

    "In the next few hours, people will start seeing BBM in Google Play, the App Store and in select Samsung App Stores – where it will be free to download," BlackBerry confirmed today.

    The company says its team of developers and engineers has been working around the clock on this and that "some incredible work has been done."

    To check out BBM on the App Store now, click here.

    The only mate of mine who's ex BlackBerry said to me the only thing he would want or misses is BB's email system. BBM has been overtaken by iMessage for him and he never cared about BBM when he had a CrackBerry..

    How is this a good thing for blackberry? Unless they are going aways from phones and are going to make software it doesn't make sense. I'm trying to eliminate services from my life, not add anymore.

    Out of curiosity I downloaded to try to bbm some former coworkers. Turns out they've managed to screw this up too, and I can't create an account (timeouts, errors, never get the opt in email)

    I created my account but it says server is not connecting... I think itll get fixed in couple hours... Too much pressure on the servers probably :/

    Exactly! I called for this around the release of the 1st gen iphone release. Had they had some sense and foresight, BBM could've EASILY been a huge hit across ALL mobile platforms, even as a paid app. They could've very well had the best head start over all mobile messaging apps.


    Oh well. Now the greatest challenge is finding someone with a blackberry.

    The app works great love it a lot more than whatsapp plus around here I will gain a lot of traction and people will download it making it easier to have a cross platform messenger app.

    So far so good.
