BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) for iOS and Android has finally been released. The app can be downloaded via Apple’s App Store, Google Play, and in select Samsung App Stores. The download is free. While you can immediately download the app, you will have to wait awhile to actually sign in and use it.
To help manage this unprecedented pent up demand for BBM, we are implementing a simple line-up system to ensure a smooth roll out. Here’s how it is going to work…
BBM Roll Out Details:
- Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com from your Android or iPhone browser*
- Once you install the app, open it, and enter your email address to hold your spot in line
- We will email you as soon as you reach the front of the line and can start using BBM
If you’ve already signed up at BBM.com, you’ll be able to start using the app immediately. Otherwise, you’ll be notified when BlackBerry is ready for you.
BlackBerry Messenger for iOS is available free in the App Store.

(UPDATE 10/21/2013) – BlackBerry has posted a number of videos on their YouTube page, demonstrating how to use BBM. The vids are not iOS specific, but should at least give you a good idea of the features available in the app.
