    I think it's cool but about 3 years too late. I'll still use it "just because", but I see no benefit over Skype, hangouts, Facebook messanger, what'sapp, aim, normal Facebook app, instagram, twitter, etc etc etc.

    Now I suppose if a business could integrate it with old school blackberry security and other bes /express type functions it would be killer, but all I've seen leaked is ANOTHER data massaging service.

    I hope they release it soon. My first smartphone was a BlackBerry and BBM was the best feature. I then got an iPhone and started using WhatsApp ever since, now I have an HTC One and still use WhatsApp solely, but I prefer BBM a lot more. They can release the Android version anytime now since it's ready but they're waiting on Apple to approve the iOS version because I think they want a simultaneous release.

    Unless it integrates non data texting with data based texting into effortless conversations (without having to switch back and forth) just to chat with non BBM users on my contacts list - ill stick with iMessage. iMessage killed all other texting apps the day I figured out the difference between green and blue messages. LOL. Wish Apple let other platforms on the boat, but works either way - don't have to worry if the other party is on iPhone or android or BB.

    Not hating, just stating my reasons why I'm not getting it. Hopefully I can find benefit in BBM one day.

    EDIT: I found a sort of a benefit in this release (but not the kind that will make me switch): It is an important one, because it ties many platforms together under one App. Hopefully, it works flawlessly, and in effect, inspire many developers to build for cross platform connectivity, especially in games - would love to have Z2's "Nitro" to be cross platform so that some of my android friends get to enjoy some multiplayer racing with me. Other benefits - some own an Android phone but Apples iPad, wouldn't be wonderful if they can have apps sync between like google calendars or google notes. (Nevermind, iOS notes already sync with gmail). But you know what I mean.

    Whatsapp is really nice app, I never had bbm or blackberry but what'sapp has everything and it's fast. Gonna be hard to overtake it as my primary messenger

    The recent updates, group chat, read, delivered msg, etc and if it has the same function like on the BB handset overall i think BBM is/will be better than any messaging apps on playstore.

    But I will still need whatsapp/wechat to communicate with my friends/family on the symbian platform.

    Hurry up BBRY what r u waiting for!

    I just read on xda that Indonesian press got the invitation on "bbm for everyone"

    It will be launched september 19. But some said the app availability could be few days delay on playstore.

    Let's wait for more info...

    Can't stand imessage. I hate that it was integrated and the service sucks from what I have experienced. Kik is so much faster and more reliable. If I could pry my friends away from kik and imessage I would use bbm in a second though. I agree it is 3 years too late though

    Explain to all of us, how it sucks? It automatically sends regular SMS or iMessage if the other end has it.. it is effortless, it shows "delivered" verification, it is FREE texting, can be turned off, and has yet to have a hickup. Tell us, please, how it sucks? Good luck "prying" your friends from using iMessage...

    BBM is only waiting on Apple because it chooses to, and if Apple allowed every single redundant App in the App store (yes it does sometimes) App store would have 2million apps by now. I'm not saying BBM is bad, but to iOS users it's pointless... I dont know one person who uses BB.

    BBM is not waiting for apple, according to blackberry press release android will have it on september 21 and ios september 22.

    Bbm for iOs maybe waiting for apple cause they're the one who will approve it but not bbm for Android.

    Yet to have a hickup for you is the key word here. I have had many times where my friends haven't gotten my message or it just didn't send. For me I would rather a separate app so I know for sure who has imessage, and I also like having extras like emoticons and if you have even tried another app like kik you would know it works flawless and all the extras are just a bonus that you miss when you use I message.

    Wow it is effortless and shows read and delivered icons like every other single messaging service out there!! So maybe you say its the best thing ever, I say it sucks. Just my opinion.

    I was excited for this two years ago, desperately wishing that we could have BBM on other platforms. Two years ago there wasn't a decent cross platform messaging app. Now they are a dime a dozen and BlackBerry is two years late to a party where it should have been the guest of honor.

    WHAT about BBM is making people want it? What does it do that no other Texting app does? I really just don't get why it's such a big deal.

    With that BS a couple weeks ago, my interest has been lost, not gonna even bother- considering some of my contacts JUST recently moved away from BB (them damn iPhones), so there's not many BB contacts left. 98% of the time I communicate via SMS anyways, other 2% is Skype.

    HTC One X (4.1.1)

    Do some research into the benefits, you'll figure it out. Sorta like getting a new phone...... Do your research first. BBM is a fantastic communication application that transcends boundaries.

    Downloaded it for 2 days then deleted it. Nothing special. Most of my contacts have moved on.
