BBM for Android and iOS has seen alot of interest. In the weeks before launch, BlackBerry saw over 6 million users lodge interest in the social networking app.
When it was released, we saw BBM shoot up in Apple’s App Store to #1 spot as of now and hit #1 around the world. The interest for BBM is fantastic.
BlackBerry rolled out BBM in a staggered launch, with users who did not originally lodge interest having to wait in line. A recent tweet from BlackBerry, 8hrs later revealed the company was approving an additional 5 million users in just 8 hours!
With the relaunch of BBM on iOS, we have now see the demand for BBM download top of the chart in iOS AppStore for free apps. Canada and the UK has already gone to #1 in Top Free iPhone Apps chart, and in the USA it’s currently sitting at #2 and we believe it will be at the #1 anytime. BBM already have over six million pre-registrations, and those that have not register will have to be on the waiting list as BlackBerry register them for BBM,
Do note that BBM is a secure messaging service compare to others which are less secure in the market.
For those using IOS and Android the wait for BBM is finally over, BlackBerry have today relaunch BBM for both platforms, amid a delay after the initial launch user’s can now head to the Google Play and App Store to download it.
