Everything you need to know about BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) for iPhone

BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) used to be exclusive to BlackBerry devices. No longer. Now it's the era of BBM for everyone, and that means whether you're on Wall Street or just hanging at home, on BlackBerry or an iPhone or an Android phone, you can be on BBM. Same "read" state. Same emoticons. Same groups. And more coming all the time!

Where's iMessage for Android?

iMessage is Apple's text and media messaging service, bundled into the Messages app on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. And that's where the platform support ends. There's no iMessage for Windows or Android. There's certainly no iMessage for Windows Phone or BlackBerry. Unlike Apple's Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and iWork, there's not even an iMessage in the iCloud. But, on the heels of Facebook buying WhatsApp for $16 billion and BlackBerry entirely missing the BBM boat... should there be?

Best WhatsApp alternatives for Facebook haters

Let's be clear — if you used WhatsApp today, very little will change today and likely tomorrow. According to WhatsApp's statement, not only will they stay an independent app, they'll stay an autonomous business unit. So, like Instagram, we may see some integration, even account sharing, WhatsApp won't become Facebook Messenger or vice versa, at least not any time soon.

So, if you're determined to ditch WhatsApp, where should you go? Here are our top 5 favorites!

Are you using BBM Channels or BBM Voice on BBM for iOS?

Instant messaging (IM) is white-hot right now. The latest update to BBM for iOS added features like BBM Voice that allows you to make and receive calls to other BBM users and BBM Channels that lets you create and follow mini blog of sorts for your favorite personalities, products and more. In the iMore Forums, there has been folks creating groups, sharing their PINS and actively using BBM since BBM was released for iOS but when it comes to BBM Channels there hasn't been a whole lot of conversation. BlackBerry recently announced that big brands have been adopting BBM Channels and from my own personal experience, I know that a lot of channels that already exist are openly welcoming iOS and Android users into the space but is anyone on iOS actually using BBM Channels?
