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 (Ds) and read (Rs)
• 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 – Set up 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 increase 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 from 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.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Best Messenger App Around
I would certainly rather pay a couple of quid for the app than have the ads though! U want 5 stars, lose the ads! Great if you dont want all ur contacts knowing you have the app, u can add individuals using there bbm pin, security is first class.. Love the private chat feature! Love the fingerprint scan to access the app, u can change the persons handle to whatever you chose. Just near perfection!
Really like this bbm secure no one snooping because only people who I invite in can see what I write , used bbm for 10 years no never had a problem most of my friends have come back to bbm , and seeing as bbm is good enough for president s and prime ministers it's more than good enough for me
The best IM platform out there
Such call clarity! And with the option to delete/retract and send timed messages and the forthcoming video call capability, this should be the IM platform of choice of one and all.
