Apple approved BBM for iPhones. This was the news we picked up recently with even images. However, we known that come summer, BBM should be available for download on Android devices and iPhone. Date is given below for download release date.

Blackberry CEO Hein announced that the Blackberry Messenger (BBM) app which is currently exclusive to Blackberry devices will be made available to iPhones and Android devices.

According to the CEO, "it is time for BBM to be made available to other competing smartphones".

Whatsapp, which is fast gaining a lot of attention due to its cross platform nature is almost making BBM less important, hence, we believe that its a good idea to offer BBM to other OS platforms and smartphones.
However, it could end up to be not so good a idea because some people are still tied to Blackberry devices because of BBM.

Time only is the judge of all things as it will reveal whether this is a good idea or bad idea by the Blackberry company
BBM will be free for Android devices running ICS (4.0.4) above and Apple devices running iOS 6.0 and above but may not be free for Windows Phone 8 devices.

Apple have approved BBM for iPhones and would be released in June for download .
