Chat with friends on iPhone and other smartphones:
• Know when messages have been delivered (D’s) and read (R’s)
• Say ‘hello’ with BBM Voice – free voice calling between BBM Contacts *
• Quickly share photos, files, documents, voice notes and more
• Allow contacts to view your location live on a map, powered by Glympse

With BBM, what you share is yours to control:
• Timed Messages: Set how long contacts have access to messages and pictures shared in a chat before it disappears from the screen.**
• 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
Chat and Share with many at once:
• Groups – BBM groups help you share pictures, lists, and appointments with group members. You can even be in a group with people who aren't part of your own BBM contact list.
• Multi-person chats – Invite multiple contacts to have a chat together.
• Broadcast messages – Send a message to multiple BBM contacts at one time.
BBM Channels: Join conversations happening now about the things you love.
• Create a new channel to share your thoughts, ideas and passions.
• Subscribe to an existing BBM channel to join chats with others who share your interests.
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

* 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.
What's New in Version 2188.8.131.52
Bug fixes and performance improvements
The new Privacy and Control subscription has several powerful features bundled into one essential package. Included with this subscription:
*New* Private Chat - Chat and share with confidence. In a private chat, contact names are hidden, meaning screenshots are useless. The chat also self destructs after being inactive for a short time. Perfect for the kind of conversations you would usually have in-person.
*New* Edit Message - Made a mistake? Now you can retract it, change it, and send your message again
Timed Messages and Pictures
All existing Timed and Retracted Messages subscribers will be upgraded to the new Privacy and Control Subscription at no additional cost
Other updates include:
Manage your Sticker Collection - Keep your stickers organized. Bring your favorites to the front
Quote Message - Reference and reply to a previous message in your chat. To quote a message, tap and hold on it and select “Quote Message”
Dynamic font size
You can now update your status from the feeds tab
Cute little chat - switch up from regular iMessage
My best friend has a blackberry so we thought it would be funny downloading it on our iPhones to chat. Interesting little chat set up, about 4 of my friends are in the same chat so we all check in everyday on the bbm app. Fun emojis pretty entertaining. Malfunctions once in awhile, my messages won't pop up but for the most part I enjoy it .
The calls rarely work, they either disconnect or don't show up as even happening. So you'll have to text someone to call you and that might not even work. I miss my blackberry though, and wish you guys would come out with a better OS because that's why I had to move over to an iPhone.
Could Be Better If...
The beauty of BBM was always in the interface that it had on the "original" Blackberry phones- and it has been significantly different on iPhones from the start. Unfortunately, not in a good way.
The chat bubbles are nothing like and have never been like original BBM, neither have the fonts.
If BBM on iPhone can try to be exactly how BBM on say, the Blackberry Bold and Storm series instead of looking like the abysmal Z & Q series, then it would be untouchable.
