BlackBerry Messenger is known for its security and exclusivity. However, BlackBerry has finally decided to launch it on other smartphone OS – do you think that’s good or bad?
Personally, I think it’s awesome! Then again, had I known I would not buy a BlackBerry. I own a BlackBerry but the only reason I actually like it is because of the image quality, the led light and BBM (and I don’t really like using BBM as I used to only use it for contacting my boyfriend)
It’s a good news for others who haven’t experienced BBM though, and I’m looking forward what else BlackBerry will offer!
Sorry for the lame title. Anyway, most of you guys have probably signed up for this other message/chat service called WeChat. Before I only saw this as ad on most of the applications I have on my Android phone, to the point that I found it already annoying – but lately, it’s become the “trend” as they released a commercial locally here in Philippines.
Like Viber, Kakaotalk, Kik, Skype, Yahoo messenger, BBM and many more - WeChat is an application that helps you communicate with your friends and family through your wifi or mobile internet as if you were just sending SMS to each other. There are also some perks, voice talk, stickers and the likes.
You can also get it for free and it’s available at Playstore – most of all it’s cross platform! Blackberry, iOS and Windows can also run this application. And that’s why WeChat is awesome.
However, if you’re into cutesy things and KPOP I still prefer Kakaotalk.
To tell you the truth, I don’t use this application much on my Android and iOS devices. But then again I know many use it for its features that one will probably make use of in many ways especially to save – free calls and sms. In short, it’s Kik Messenger and Skype combined!
Viber for Blackberry
Viber lets you send text and photo messages, anywhere in the world (Free calls coming soon as well). All you need is a 3G or WiFi connection, and friends who get Viber too.
I know it has been being worked on as I’ve read on Crackberry Forums but was pretty surprised it was released promptly after I read it. LOL. Anyway, it was apparently out yesterday.
At the moment, it’s perfect for those who are somewhere with wifi all the time because to be able to use it for local network internet, I think you’ll need the most expensive plan – the thing is, the other plans are either limited for social networking, emails or IM only so it’s not pretty much of use. Not many are yet “astonished” and finds its useful since most Blackberry users already have BBM – they did say in their Appworld Download Page that “free calls are coming soon“. Hopefully, it’s not a recorded voice message like the others.
