    Bah. I see no sense in this app because we already have the likes of WhatsApp, Telegram, Viber etc. I tried it for a while then dumped it because I know no one who uses it apart from a few Blackberry users. How many messaging apps do we need anyway?

    BBM is superior to all of those apps. The problem you have is you don't know enough people using it and for some that is reason enough not to use it. However if you have contacts it still is the best messaging app out and is only getting better.

    With WhatsApp now part of FaceBook, I am not sure how privacy will deteriorate. BBM might come just in time. If it provides tangible benefits, features, and quality over the other services, people will switch.

    It's all a matter of taste. As some forum members have pointed out, if FB manage to screw up WhatsApp I will likely find myself switching to another messaging app, it depends which one is the most popular with my contacts and if it's BBM then so be it. At the end of the day they all do the same thing.
  6. Blackberry has the slow decline of SEGA written all over it.

    Facebook will screw it up and I see that 450 million user based will be cut in half in 2 years time :p
