BBM v126.96.36.199 was officially released to BlackBerry App World today! This version of BlackBerry Messenger is by far the most feature rich. Not because of the added UI or features users have been asking for, for years. Because of all the BBM-Connected apps you can access through it.
Updates to BBM 6.0.1 include:
° File transfer/picture sending fixes
° Bug fixes from BBM v6.0.1 beta
Here at Berryfication we love our BBM. There’s no doubt about it, this is RIM’s silent missile. While others will always try to recreate this type of instant messenging client we have faith RIM will be one step ahead of them.
This latest build has seen a lot of priming through the BlackBerry Beta Zone builds. They haven’t added really any of the features users have been requesting over the past 2 years. But they have ensured that the big bugs have been squashed. The big focus now is on downloading, buying and sharing BBM-Connected apps.
It’s actually not as gimmicky as you might think if you haven’t tried it. For instance with “Connected apps” you can invite others to play against you, with you or compete to beat your scores. Invite others to share music with you, see what your playing. Invite them to download the FREE apps your using, maybe the fonts your digging. Show other users your location, where you’ve checked in on foursquare. Send them images, files, even large zip files through FileScout. Connect with random people on Wikitude, the options are endless. RIM is truly onto something with this application. Will it be enough? That’s for users to decide.
