[BlackBerry app] BBM updated with easier photo sharing, voice calling and more


BBM for BlackBerryBlackBerry Messenger (BBM) has been updated (10.4.4.8) for the BlackBerry platform with a more more streamlined attachment sharing that makes it easier to share files such as photos and documents between users. Audio calling has also been added. This brings the cross-platform messenger app in line with other competitors in the field such as Whatsapp and Viber.

You can download the update directly on your device through BlackBerry World or by using the following link:

Download Download from BlackBerry World
Price Free
Requirements BB 10.0.0 or higher


Open BlackBerry World on your device. Do one of the following:
  • On a device running BlackBerry Device software 7.1 or older, press the Menu key. Click Scan a Barcode.
  • On a BlackBerry 10 device, swipe down from the top of the screen. Click Scan a Barcode.
  • BlackBerry App World will instantly find the app you've selected.

BBM uses BlackBerry's private secure network and it was quite a hit when BlackBerry phones ruled the corporate world. Users would exchange unique personal numbers called PINs, thus connecting them to each other, and be able to communicate securely. However, as BlackBerry's fortunes diminished, BBM user share has diminished as well. BlackBerry hopes this update as well as BBM's relatively new cross-platform nature will bring users back to its service.

BlackBerry devices on AT&T receive 10.2.1.3014 software update


BlackBerry 10 - Bootup

AT&T is now rolling out the 10.2.1.3014 OS update (also known as 10.2.1.3337 update) to the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q10 on its network. The update doesn't seem to bring any new features over the BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 update, so we assume it contains minor bug fixes and performance improvements for the carrier devices.

The update is being rolled out in stages, so it may be awhile before it is available for your device. Once you do receive the OTA (over-the-air) update notification, ensure your battery is fully charged and that you are connected to Wi-Fi before downloading and installing the update.

According to the BlackBerry 10.2.1 changelog, the update will bring
  • Enhanced Bluetooth: Improvements have been made to make it easier to connect to Bluetooth devices and car kits than ever before.
  • Enhanced Photography: Take better pictures and videos with new camera enhancements such as improved focus and stability.
  • More Storage Space: Your BlackBerry 10 device can now support 64GB SD cards, giving you more space to save photos, videos, music and more.
If you happen to spot any new features on your BlackBerry Z10 or Blackberry Q10 on AT&T be sure to leave us a comment and let us know.

    The BBM sign-up process has been optimized in this update, by cutting down the number of fields it takes to get signed up, so you can start chatting and sharing even faster. Name. Email. Password. That’s all you need to get started on BBM! For those of you already on BBM today, this change won't impact you at all.

This new release will simplify the process so that when you receive a BBM invite by email - all you have to do is click the link and presto, you’re BBM contacts. No need to send a PIN invite back.
  • New Emoticons & more
    You’ll also find 16 new BBM emoticons in this release - from a hotdog, and maracas, to a hacker and a pair of hot lips. What you know today has been renamed as the ‘Updates’ tab…‘Feeds’ has been renamed to better represent what you find there – the latest statuses and profile photos from your BBM contacts and the newest posts from the BBM Channels you follow.

Android apps reportedly running faster on BlackBerry 10.3


Looks like there is some good news for BlackBerry 10 users who like run Android apps on their phones. Android runtime is getting updated to Android 4.3 on BlackBerry 10.3. Those who have tested the update say that Android apps open in less than two seconds, a significant improvement over the speed at which these apps open in BlackBerry 10.2.

With BlackBerry 10.3, the Android runtime will appear on the BlackBerry native apps sharing menu. Considering that developers aren't exactly beating down the doors to deliver native BlackBerry apps, it definitely helps to have the manufacturer continue to make improvements in this area.

Other than the improvements to the Android runtime, the BlackBerry 10.3 update will bring several other new features and improvements to BlackBerry 10 devices.  The UI will now have blue accents, while active frames can be rearranged and be permanently set on the homepage. The update includes "Flip to Wake," and the camera will now allow you to take still shots while you are filming a video.

With BlackBerry OS 10.3, you can swipe using two fingers from any page to get to Quick Settings from any app. You also get a tracker for data usage, and a equalizer in the music app. You can take a closer look at some of these improvements in the following screenshots.
