If we go in the past then I think messaging app was having only a single name i.e. BBM (BlackBerry Messenger). This app is really worth and very impressive till today but now android and iOS devices have taken over the BlackBerry.
Now there were lots of rumors last year that BlackBerry is preparing to launch the BBM app for the popular Android and iOS platforms so that users who switched to Android or iOS from BlackBerry can use their old BBM.
But nothing official news till now from the BlackBerry and I think BlackBerry will never provide its highly precious BBM app for the Android or iOS platform.
Use BBM (Blackberry Messenger) on Android
If you want to use BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) on your android then there are two apps available on the GooglePlay store which will allow you to use lots of features that were available on the official BBM.
Here I’m with the review of these two apps using which you can use the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) on your android smartphone or tablet.
Messenger for BBM
This is a premium app available at the GooglePlay store and it allows you to chat with your BBM friends by adding them to contacts list via their BlackBerry PIN.
So if any of your friends is still using the BlackBerry smartphone and you want to chat with him via your android device then you can use this pro app.
Setting up is very comfortable and requires few minutes. You need to put name and BlackBerry PIN of your friend and then add him to your contacts inside the app.
That’s it! Now you’ll be able to chat with your BBM friends via your beloved android device.
Now you must be worrying about the UI of this app and I must tell you that the UI is very impressive and elegant. [Download]
Now if you don’t want to purchase the above app then this one is a free app that will allow you to use BBM on your android device. This app is available on all three platforms, iOS, android and BlackBerry i.e. cross platform app.
I didn’t like the UI of the app but still its features are worth. The app has got complete features that you expect in a messenger app.
It provides real time messaging delivery feature and also sends you acknowledgment back i.e. delivery report. You can send messages or texts to anyone around the world. You only need to have a valid data plan.
Now, coming to the thing which you’re looking for i.e. BBM support. You can chat with your friends who are using BlackBerry devices by entering their BlackBerry PINs and connecting them.
The app is available as completely free version with no advertisements and you can prepare your profile with placing your status.
The app also allows file sharing and you can login via Facebook or Twitter as well. When someone text you back then it shows up in the notification area as well.
You can download this app for free and it supports android 2.2 and higher versions that means nearly all the android devices. [Download]
