That’s right, BBM has been submitted to the Apple App Store a couple weeks ago and is awaiting approval, once that happens you know they will release it on Android Play store simultaneously.
Can BBM save Blackberry? Well not wholly, but for some part Blackberry will remain in peoples minds for probably the rest of the foreseeable future. I can bet that you will be installing BBM as soon as its available, I mean come on, it is the best instant chat program out there.
That and the new BBM Channels seems like an awesome application that will help to save the brand.
BBM Channels is a service from BlackBerry that allows users and brands to create channels within BBM. Users can subscribe to the channels while the channel owners can push out custom content to subscribers.
Channels include anything from personal users to brands to communities. Some current channels include CrackBerry (or course), the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team, Goo Goo Dolls and many more.
BBM Channels is currently includes in BBM version 8.
I will have more news closer to the release. But expect BBM for iOS and Android before the end of the month!
