• Message Retraction: ‘Retract’ a message to remove it from your BBM chat.*
• You choose how to share your information - BBM uses PINs instead of phone numbers or email addresses so that it's more private, and you always control who can contact you
• You choose your contacts – 2-way opt-in means you have control over who is able to message you

* Data changes may apply
* 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.

Bug fixes and performance improvements
Great Alternate Messaging App
This app is great for messaging if you cannot use your phone's messaging. This app is very safe and people cannot just look you up. Everyone gets a private ID pin and I like that. I like that it is always free and that any operating system can use it. The emojis are great and I can also use my iPhone's emojis too. It was hard to figure out how to use it at first though and it takes up way too much storage space but if you cannot use your phone's messenger this is great.
Latest Update is nice
My only complaint is that BBM needs to have a light and dark or day and night theme. Besides that it's pretty nice. I could do without the BBM is closed notifications every time I shut the app from a conversation since it makes it appear like someone is still messaging me.
Compared to the BB10 BBM it seems BBM has come a long way since going cross platform. Happy to see it thriving as it should.
I use it on my iPhone to text my wife's Q10. At work I have poor cell coverage and used to only be able to iMessage people but this opens it up to everyone. Calling VoIP is great as well as I travel to remote Alaska where no ATT is available. Thanks BBM!
**UPDATE** Since updating to ios 9.02 it constantly locks up when I send or receive the large emojis.
