    Check the developer of the app. I would expect the BBM app to come from a registered name like "BlackBerry" or "Research In Motion" if they're using that name (not sure if they can since the company renamed to BlackBerry)

    Sadly a few of the fakes have been allowed to use names like RIM. blackberry and even Google. Would just get the link via bbm.com or something

    Does Google have ZERO oversight of apps on the play store? It is SO annoying. Makes me miss iOS.

    Actually Google now reviews applications as soon as they are reported. Its part of their "clean up the play store" movement.

    I'll repeat this here, if you find a fake report it. As stated above reported apps are reviewed immediately now.

    I appreciate your response but "apps are reviewed" doesn't mean much to me. Literally 10 friends and I (who knows how many others) report an app that clearly and blatantly deceives ("BlackBerry Messenger", "Official BBM" ) and low and behold a days later it's still there (hours later for one I'm referring to) . So I suppose I should ask what "review" means (I'm honestly not being sarcastic).

    Easiest way... follow @bbm and @blackberry on twitter... you'll know which one is real.

    - twitter.com/bbm
    - twitter.com/blackberry
