The BlackBerry Messenger app for Android and iOS was set to go live today, but it seems like some unforeseen issues have caused a delay. Instead, there are plenty of fake BBM apps making its way to the Play Store which have fooled users worldwide. And now, BlackBerry has come up with a word on the delay of its new app with a short message on Facebook. It read – “Thanks for your patience. Working hard to get you the real BBM ASAP. We’ll let you know when it is live.”
But Phone Arena is reporting that a few users have been able to download the BBM app for their iPhones in New Zealand, so this seems to be an Android only issue for now. I personally tried searching for the app on the Play Store to no avail. What I saw instead was a plethora of fakes pretending to be the real deal. We’re hoping BlackBerry manages to get its act together and roll out the app as soon as possible.
