BBM

Postby MB131174 » Fri Apr 25, 2014 6:16 pm

So do any of you non-BlackBerry users use the BBM app that BlackBerry made available for iPhone & Android? I'm not sure why it isn't more widely used. You do not have to exchange your mobile number, you can block annoying/harassing people, it's free, etc. I rather like it - it's just that no one uses it. If you wanna stalk me, go for it. 7A8E1C92

no reason to when all your former BBM buddies have also moved on to ichat, gchat, whatsapp, etc. one less messenger to keep track of for me :P

Never heard if ichat, unless you mean iMessage? I love iMessage, but not everyone has an iPhone. (I feel so sorry for android users.) Gchat is google? That's nice, if you have an android. whatsapp is ok, but it's not as "private" b/c it requires you to share your mobile number. I think BBM is an underrated messenger that could have potential. I'd love to see BlackBerry make a desktop version that was seamless with your mobile device. I don't see a mass appeal for that, but, maybe in the business world where you need to get in contact with someone faster than email but phone isn't appropriate. I know I'd use it at work considering I communicate with buyers from all over the country during the work day.

blackberry messed up to put it politely

bbm is cool, my friend uses it because she's a diehard blackberry fan, I used to have it but no more

gchat is a messenger that google provides, just needs a gmail, and you can control who can see you or not, as well as block users, they have it for desktop, I use it on my macpro and I could use it on my iPhone for apps but last I check those apps aren't the best but it probably has gotten better since that is almost 3 years ago.

I don't think blackberry runs well oiled, there may be some execs that realize they have to change and keep up with the times, and then there are those who won't so android and iPhone has excelled the mobile market, that even business owners and corporate types (doesn't every corporate get a blackberry as a work phone) are moving towards iPhone/androids for company issues

blackberry just can't compete with that so bbm isn't going to blow up with it

not when alternatives are in play

also don't need an iPhone to do iMessage, you can do that on iPad or itouch

ichat is on the desktop version

I think as long as the chat interface isn't obstructive, the hard requirement is people. It's the same reason people still use facebook and not hop onto other social networks.

As a side note, gchat does the desktop/phone sync thing. It does it very well actually, and I can switch and pick up conversations as if I'd never left.

BBM rules.

I have been on it and still am on it since day one - it was a blackberry proprietary piece of software.

Believe it or not, I make all by friends (or those that want to be LOL) all get it. I won't use anything else.

I value my time and want to keep things simple. Just like the one card philosophy, I have a one chat program philosophy

If we could get MemberSince99 to join us, we could even start a BBM CCF chat group.

However, I wonder if MemberSince99 deletes apps as quickly as he opens & closes cards?
