BBM for Android and iOS Updated With New Features and Improvements

BBM for Android and iPhone
BlackBerry has updated their BBM for iOS and Android with new versions as we expected today. This new version adds new features, bug fixes, and performance enhancements along with iPod and iPad support. Best of all is that they added social functions to help find your friends who have BBM on other social networks you use. This is the kind of viral use case that BlackBerry needs to get more users on BBM. They are even promoting that you share your BBM barcode on your social networks though I am not sure how popular that will be. Still I have been seeing quite a few barcodes on Facebook and Instagram…
BlackBerry was even kind enough to release a high level change log for each version:
BBM for Android
  • Support for BBM Contact Categories
  • BBM Group List sorting and filtering improvements
  • More options for sharing your BBM PIN Barcode
  • Find your friends on other social networks who are also using BBM
  • Addresses an issue where some users may have experienced higher battery use
BBM for iPhone
  • Support for iPod and iPad devices running iOS6 and iOS7
  • Improvements to right-to-left language support
  • More options for sharing your BBM PIN Barcode
  • Find your friends on other social networks who are also using BBM
  • Fixes an issue where some users would be missing BBM contact names
Get the latest versions at the iOS App Store and Google Play.
