BlackBerry Messenger 1.0.4
BlackBerry Messenger now available for Android and iOS

BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) is a popular instant messaging tool which originated on BlackBerry devices, but is now also available on Android and iOS.

BBM keeps life simple, not least because it's "always on", always connected. You don't have to open an app to chat, it's always available to send or receive messages.

There's plenty of depth to the service, too. You can create your own profile, perhaps set or update your status. You might send text (with a host of emoticons), photos, files, documents and more. And you can have one-to-one chats, or broadcast messages to a whole group.

Once a message has been despatched, you'll see right away when it's been delivered or read, even when a contact is responding. It's all very interactive.

While this might sound like it presents privacy issues, that's really not the case. BBM uses its own PIN system to identify users, rather than email addresses. And both you, and each of your contacts needs to opt in to the system, so you always keep full control over who can message you.

Please note, to avoid getting overwhelmed by demand, BBM asks for an email address on its first launch, and you'll have to wait for an email before you can use the app. They're allowing millions on at a time so this shouldn't take long, but the official Twitter site has more.

What's new in 1.0.4?

- Support for iPod and iPad
- Invite BBM contacts to BBM Groups by Email
- 'Tell your friends’ feature helps you connect with friends on BBM
- Quickly share your BBM PIN and PIN barcode to your social networks
- Fixes an issue where some users would be missing BBM Contact names
- Resolves some issues experienced in right to left language support
- Bug fixes and performance improvements

Verdict:

An attractive, easy-to-use messaging app with plenty of useful features

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
