BlackBerry still promising BBM for iOS before the end of the summer

We're still getting asked this all the time, so just in case you were wondering, BBM — aka BlackBerry Messenger — is still coming to iOS, and it'll be with us by the end of the summer. BlackBerry CEO, Thorsten Heins, used this mornings earnings call to let us know, but didn't provide any other, more specific details. And, since we're only just at the beginning of summer, it's not likely its just around the corner. Ah, well. Who's waiting, oh so patiently, for BBM?

Tweetbot adds support for Instagram Video. No, seriously!

Gotta love the guys at Tapbots who seem to be able to go from zero to new features in no time flat, even if the new feature just happens to be Instagram Videos which has barely launched and is still, arguably more curiosity than product.

Since Twitter and Instagram haven't been seeing eye-to-eye on media embeds for a while now, Tweetbot continues to enjoy better support for Facebook's photo -- and now sharing -- network than the official Twitter app, and that Insta-gap is only growing. If you're already using Tweetbot, grab the update now. If you haven't tried it yet, you've got one more reason to try it now!
