BBM arrives on both Android and iOS
The highly anticipated Blackberry Messenger has finally found it’s way into the hands of Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS users’ hands. Android users can now install BBM from Google Play while the social networking app is available on iTunes for iOS users.
Just like the native app on the Blackberry OS, the Android and iOS versions too require PIN for invites. We noticed most (if not all) Android users registered on BBM were assigned with PINs that start with ‘7’.
BBM is one of the most widely used social networks in the world but have previously received exclusive usage from Blackberry smartphone users until today when it was made available to iOS and Android users too. The move to make Blackberry available to other platforms is seen as the last desperate efforts the Blackberry company is making to keep it’s head afloat troubled waters.
