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.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

There are many reasons why I prefer BBM to others like Whatsapp.. One I sign in not with phone number, if I am chatting with someone, I'm not interrupted by another contact telling me , I see you on line, which happens a lot in whatsapp. I got video call and voice at the same time, though quality needs to improve, it is private as whatsapp ??? I don't know who has better encryption. Anyhow those are only few reasons why I prefer BBM over other messengers .
A bit disappointed
Having switched from blackberry to iPhone, I was excited to be able to download the BBM app. But the emoticons are so complicated that blackberry users can't see them...and really who needs all of them. The personal chat invite button is so annoying, I tap it every time I pick up my phone...I'm already having a private conversation with my friend. Why don't you make it like the real BBM?
better video sharing.
What's the point of video sharing when the end user has to explicitly download it? Plus, if the end user doesn't accept the download, it cancels the transfer. Why ads are appearing in chats section? I have a few contacts that are using bbm on blackberry 10 who can't video chat with me because you are not pulling your pants up. Stop being lazy and work.
