BBM is a FREE messaging app available for iPhone and other smartphones. BBM has unique features to protect your privacy and keep you in control:
• Retract – The ability to take back messages and photos, even after you’ve sent them. Retract before they’ve been ‘R’ (Read) and they’ll never know! *
• Timer – The ability to set a timer so that a message or photo can only be viewed for a set amount of time before it disappears.* Glympse allows you to do the same with location!
• Private Chat – A special chat mode that disappears without a trace when you’re finished.
• The BBM PIN – A way to share your contact information, without sharing your phone number or email address. This keeps you in control of who can send you messages at all times. Once blocked, they have no way of contacting you.
PLUS, BBM HAS EVERYTHING YOU EXPECT FROM A MESSAGING APP:
• Free voice calling between BBM Contacts with BBM Voice
• Quickly share photos, files, documents, voice notes and more
• Know when messages have been delivered (D’s) and read (R’s)
• See when contacts are responding to your message
• BBM is always on and always connected – no app to open
• Hundreds of Stickers and Emoticons for every mood and emotion let you express yourself
• Allow contacts to view your location live on a map, powered by Glympse
CHAT WITH A GROUP
• Invite additional BBM contacts to join a chat to make things more lively! Join at any time, and it ends when everyone leaves - up to 250 BBM contacts in one chat!
• BBM Groups – Setup a permanent BBM Group with your close friends or co-workers - not only can you chat, but also share pictures in a group Album, assign tasks to group members, and create calendar events for group members. Permanent BBM Groups can have up to 50 members.
• Broadcast messages – Get the word out in a flash by sending a broadcast message to multiple BBM contacts at one time.
• Get more of what you love in BBM by subscribing to BBM Channels that interest you
• Posts from Channels that you have subscribed to appear in your BBM Feeds
• Join the conversation and meet new BBM contacts through comments on Channel Posts
• Create your own channel and build your subscribers to share your thoughts, ideas and passions
Create your own BBM profile:
• Post a profile picture using images, pictures or even animated pictures (GIFs)
• Update your status to let people know what you’re up to or how you feel

* While these features are designed to remove the message or picture the recipient’s BBM chat view, they do not prevent recipients from capturing an image of the content by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device. Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view, but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.

What's New in Version 2126.96.36.199
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Blackberry has no clue
OK first let me say I cannot believe that people like crapple Products better i'm waiting to get the Priv but cant , not on spint
Bblack berry allow you search your own phone first, they allowed you to set the priorities of how your data was controlled on your devices very detailed it would store dates and times of texts and phone calls exactly correct and forever. It would allow you to name your picture and then you could search it so in certain cases you can pull up important picture or even document you took a picture all you had to do is remember name it was awesome i wish they would call me.
Ugly Char Interface now, no group notification options still
The latest update to BBM may finally let me completely love off of BBM am to better mobile chat applications like Slack and WhatsApp. Not only did they completely redesign the new chat interface to look ugly, but there's so much wasted white space in it now.
Also, there is no way to mute sounds for group notifications separately from single person chats. Every single other chat app I use has this option, and it's very annoying not to be able to do this on BBM.
Updating my review a bit. The app is even worse now. Stuck on connecting half the time and ads are obnoxiously placed within the chat list. Time to delete and move on to better messaging apps.
Good but has its issues.
I love bbm but I am having issues with it every day. When I'm not around wifi it says connecting. It does not work until I am around wifi again. I reported this about 3 times and after doing so it started working. I am not sure why it does that but please fix it. This app is a great way to communicate with friends and family. I love the video chat is very crisp and clear. Please fix the little issue and this would be the PERFECT app.
