    Oh sorry. I was wondering why you didn't have a link. Yes, it would be a good idea as long as it worked in the background.

    When all the other third-party apps don't (assuming this is an iPhone app)? Yeah, sure it does...

    I would love this. For me push AIM isn't a good substitute because I hate always being logged on. When I'm on AIM people will try holding long coversations with me whereas a text message is usually just a quick comment/question. Any opportunity for free text messages is always welcomed

    It would need to be on all iPhones and always be on to be the BBM for the iPhone.

    OP, can you give us any solid comments about this, before we "comment"? Like, for starters, what is this? Is this a developed app in the approval process or just a twinkle in your eye?

    or you could just email. bbm just seems like a way for blackberry users to feel special that they have their own little messaging network.

    The only iPM I see in the AppStore sure doesn't seem to have anything to do with BBM or IM'ing.

    but that would kill the battery big time unless they made it go into a power saver mode of some sort.

    WHY? SMS doesnt kill the battery and it is instant.

    As far as I know, BBM doesn't actually pop anything up when you get a message, it just plays that "badunk" noise and adds an icon badge, which is exactly the kind of stuff you can do with push notifications. So you would actually be able to replicate BBM almost exactly on the iPhone.

    The ONLY reason most of my friends won't switch to the iPhone from their Blackberries is b/c of BBM. Anyone who says SMS or IM clients are the same thing simply hasn't used it (or hasn't had any friends who used it). A program like this would be a HUGE asset for Apple but I agree that it should run in the background.

    That does look good and would be great for Apple to integrate this to all iPhones. Will definitely bring up more customers. Hurry and copyright your image!!! haha

    What is superior about BBM to iPhone's SMS, aside from needing a text plan?

    I think it's only superior because it is free.
