BBM For iPhone: The Wait is Almost Over

BBM for iPhone: Have you been waiting for BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) BBM for Android and iPhone to be released to the public? If you are a fan of BBM but have been using an Android or iPhone device, you know that this feature has not been available to you. You also know that the company has been waiting to release this for quite a few months.

BlackBerry BBM for Android and iPhone: the wait is almost over

Well, the wait is finally over. BlackBerry has announced that it will begin to roll out BBM for Android and iPhone within the next couple of days.


The Android version is expected to be available on September 21, with the iPhone version coming to users on September 22. In other words, you only have another day or two of waiting.

With this feature at your fingertips, you will now be able to use BBM to connect with friends on different platforms.

In the past, BBM was exclusive to BlackBerry smartphones. In a smart move by the company, it decided to make a free app available for download via Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Features of BBM for Android and iPhone

If you have never used a BlackBerry device in the past, you are probably unsure of what BBM has to offer. Now that it is available for Android and iPhone, you may want to begin thinking about the features so you can decide if downloading it makes good sense.

Here are just a few of the features to keep in mind:

- The ability to hold live conversations with friends on BlackBerry, Android, and iPhone devices. Forget about exclusivity. BBM is now available to almost every smartphone user.

- Post updates. With BBM, you can post a personal message, profile picture, and status.

- Unique PIN for advanced privacy. Privacy has always been on the top of the priority list at BlackBerry. With BBM for Android and iPhone, a unique PIN is made available to maintain your privacy at all times. You never have to give out your phone number or email to connect with somebody.

Now that BlackBerry BBM for Android and iPhone may be available to you for the first time over the next couple of days, you have a big decision to make. Are you going to download this free app for your Android or Apple smartphone? Or will you stay away from BBM, relying on other ways of communication?
