BlackBerry Messenger for the iPhone was submitted to the App Store two weeks ago, which means the launch could be coming at any time pending approval from Apple. The news was announced (https://twitter.com/alexkinsella/status/376084250639872000) this afternoon by BlackBerry Social Media Manager Alex Kinsella.

BBM, which functions similarly to Apple's iMessage, was one of the first proprietary mobile messaging services and remains popular to this day with more than 60 million active monthly users.

BlackBerry first announced (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/05/14/blackberry-messenger-coming-to-ios-this-summer/) the iOS version of BBM in May, and sent out beta invites (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/01/blackberry-messenger-beta-starts-rolling-out-for-ios-and-android-devices/) to the service in early August.

Two weeks ago, BlackBerry posted a user guide (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/22/blackberry-messenger-user-guides-posted-ios-launch-coming-soon/) for the app, detailing the how the service works, its available features, and how to create an account. The app was expected to be launched shortly after the guide was posted, but it appears that it is still under review.

It is not clear why BlackBerry Messenger is still stuck in the review process after two weeks, as Apple typically finishes app reviews within five business days.

BlackBerry will have a lot of competition in the messaging space on iOS. In addition to iMessage, there are a number of other third-party messaging services that have soared in popularity over the last couple of months, including LINE, Whatsapp and WeChat.

Because we need another mobile messaging app like we need a hole in the head?

whatsapp
hangouts
facebook messenger
imessage
good ol sms
and a billion other ones that are less known and now bbm?

What we really need is a multiplatform messaging app with sms integration on both mobile devices and can be web based as well. Pipe dream I know but if that ever happens that will be the app that rules them all! Untill then I think hangouts and fb messenger are the best options since they are multiplatform and also web based options. Problem for ios users is you can't change the notification sound so its easy to miss message notifications for those two services because the default sound is short and low volume.

So for the most part I use sms for single person messages and whatsapp for group messages.

At least 50% of the kids who go to my college (aged between 16 & 21) STILL have Blackberr(ies?). Only now have they woken up & started to delve in to iPhones & Android phones.

I'm based in the UK as well, which is a very different place market-share wise to the US. Pre-paid is very popular, and Curves are selling like hotcakes with a price of 100 off the shelf.

There's still a market for them. Albeit a dwindling one.

Not really mate, they want to take on whatsapp wich is now subscription based for new users plus bbm on iOS and Android will make possible for people that use Blackberrys with only "Social" data plan (only use bbm and email with no full data plan) to communicate with Android and iOS at no cost.

This is true. Outside the U.S blackberries are quite popular. But take a look at a college in the U.S and you won't find a single one on campus mostly plagued by iphones and most recently galaxy s4s.

BB10 is decent. Just BBM has lost so much steam not becoming multi platform years ago when it would have been a lot more relevant.

It's just kind of redundant with all the messaging apps that now exist.

I'm actually excited about this. Three or four of my colleagues sport Blackberry 10 series. This will give me more flexible communication options without trying to convince others to download a third party app. Unlike my Android friends who I have to explain how to use "What's App". As for all my friends using Windows Phone 8... Screw Him.

If it's free, I may get my mother in law to install it when it's available on Android. While my wife and I can text to the US for free, the same isn't true for her. Whatsapp works for now, but she doesn't want to pay for it once her free year runs up.

While I'd never switch to a BB device, I'll install their messaging app.

App development has been going moderately apace and continues to get better. Of course, the fact that BB10 sideloads Android apps easily, often with better performance than native Android hardware, and that as of 10.2 the virtualization runtime is Jelly Bean, means that current Android developers have only a few mouse-clicks between them and another platform on which to generate revenue.

I'm actually looking forward to this being on my iPhone! It's one thing I've truly missed since jumping ship from blackberry. The thing you all seem to forget is its not just anther poor messaging app it's a messaging app which lets you talk to who you want when you want without anyone having to see if your online like whataapp. Don't get me wrong whatsapp is great but even if you don't have someone as a contact they can still talk to you which is absurd. Bbm provides security in that sense by allowing you to talk privately to who you want! For that reason in pretty sure Itl grow on the majority of you, mark my words. Just wish they introduce an ipad version at launch *sigh*

I really could go down the "who still has a blackberry" route - I can't think of one person who I know who has one. The one close friend I have who is a technological dinosaur and hung on to BB when everyone else switched even has an iPhone now.

Every talk plan on the planet comes with unlimited talk and texts these days, so there is no cost advantage in using BBM rather than texting.

And I don't agree that most kids have anything other than iPhones these days, or at least a budget android handset. There was a One Direction documentary on TV a couple of weeks ago, and all the teen girls had iPhones.

The last two neighbourhoods in which I've lived haven't been the nicest, and one thing I noticed is that although you don't really see too many iPhones per capita in neighbourhoods like these, you do see a lot of Blackberries, especially among the younger people. Blackberry in corporates not so much anymore, but BB among the poorer people, big thing. Anecdotal, sure, but it fits with what I've read about how RIM is enterprise in the US, but in the rest of the world their phones are marketed and sold as low cost youth consumer phones.

I think it's funny though when some of these companies are supposed to have some of the best, brightest people working for them and yet they still seem to be absolutely clueless on designing things, even Apple have things they could do on certain things these days and yet haven't! :rolleyes:

Hardly. Blackberry owns a QNX-based OS with superb hardware and external device abstraction, which continues to evolve at a 4 - 6 month per major revision cycle, and whose security and enterprise features are second to none in the mobile world. The importance of leveraging a microkernel OS on mobile platforms, where questions of both power management and security have become increasingly important both in fact and in the public awareness, cannot be overstated. A lot of people bandy about talk about the age of tablets and this being the post-PC era, but embedded microkernel systems like BB10 represent the advent of the post-tablet era, in which a single device is responsible for one's digital activity. When you have a device that can pair with other hardware, local or remote, and interact with it as though it were internally native with little or no energy penalty, and seamlessly scale up its resource usage and service provisioning when new hardware is paired because of its microkernel architecture, you're looking at the basis for the first true attempts at desktop replacement in mobile devices.

This advantage, which is unique to Blackberry in the mobile market, is why they will have excellent penetration in the business market, especially the sectors with sensitive data requirements like agencies or healthcare, and why they'll have no shortage of suitors should they decide to go private and Fairfax inexplicably doesn't buy them, which they will.

I can see them going after the current messaging services (using BBM, but without the BB). That's fine. They can become a software company. But I still don't get the option of having a BB communicate with an Android device or iPhone. People need to own BBs to make that happen. And while you may know someone with a BB (likely a 55 year-old white male who uses it as a work phone), the actual numbers say these phones are rare and on the path to extinction.

If BlackBerry had launched BBM for iOS/Android two years ago, the app would have had the most dominant multi-platform messaging service.

The sad reality is that too much people have left BBM, and competition between iMessage, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger is fierce.

This is going to be a great niche product for businesses and people that rely on BBM, but talk about a missed opportunity. Yet another case of BlackBerry scrambling to catch up, instead of being a market leader.

What's the point of WhatsApp? Never pay for text messaging, NEVER, unless you really need to use SMS. AIM is already free and works on everything. FBM is free and works OK. Anyway, I'm probably going to go ahead and not download this since nobody I know uses a BlackBerry.

It depends on the region, here in latin america/caribbean most people have/had blackberrys just because of the bbm, hell ive seen a bunch of z10 ! And the users are from all ages :)

I dont understand why are you saying "people need to own BBs to make that happend" , if your talking about word of mouth im sure they wont have a problem with advrts.

I suppose that in the segment where it's most popular - particularly people under 18, security is not a concern at all.

To be honest, I can't imagine that they are sending anything worth intercepting!

I certainly wouldn't use it though. The security model is poorly designed, and they are too stubborn to redesign it.

I wonder if this is the reason they are pushing BBM to across multiple platforms, to maybe have a nice secure foot against them (not likely though).

I recently purchased a Z10 brand new off of craigslist for a great price, and it's a solid piece of equipment. The only thing lacking, of course, is the app store. Since it is based off of Android, it will hopefully acquire the ability to run most Android apps. Honestly, if BB came out with a 5"+ screen phone, I think it would sell like hotcakes, if all the former were to apply.

All reports are that the BB Z10 is a good piece of hardware, not perfect, but good. BUT . . .

BB is dead; seriously dead. They are looking to sell the company and get out of the business ASAP. It feels like the release of the BBM app for the other platforms is an attempt to build up the valuation of the company for a sale. Rumors are that they want to be out of the business as soon as November! (Source (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324577304579055321852435370.html))

I wouldn't hold my breath for a second gen Z10, or any other device from the company. Best be would be for someone to step in, grab the company update the OS and put it on some decent hardware.

BB is late to the game, they should have done the Z10 a few years ago and made BBM available on iOS as soon as possible. As it is, nothing much is going to come out of this.

While this might be true most consumers don't know this and wouldn't care they think that bb has no apps thus the choice then becomes either iOS or android for most consumers.

Called it: Fairfax’s Watsa closing in on Blackberry purchase (http://www.livemint.com/Companies/PyeqaLED9bSskTvri1evaK/Fairfaxs-Watsa-Closing-in-on-Blackberry-Purchase-report.html?ref=mr)

Fairfax apparently things their forward position is tenable enough to pick up them in total. I'm aware that nothing is done till it's done but it's going to happen, and I certainly don't blame Heins for taking Blackberry private. Speculators have consistently tried to take the firm to pieces.
