Reasons to Use BBM on iPhone and Reason Don’t Install BBM for iPhone

After the arrival of BBM to Android and iOS, it’s time to assess whether it is worth using or not. We give three reasons for doing so, and another 3 to do so. In any case, as a good early- adopter, I recommend at least try. What was to be a triumphant arrival home from enemy placid eventually became a nightmare. I speak of BBM, which landed on Google Play and App Store almost simultaneously scheduled for a weekend was postponed by force by the amount of. Apk filtered and the amount of dupes who used them. In a more discreet took place long after the promised arrival. And even then it was not the same, BBM managed to reach the top of the stores ( which is no guarantee of anything, by the way). After the sublime BBM and WhatsApp analysis by my colleague JJ Velasco, is time to analyze the reasons for using BBM, and reasons to continue as before without installing.

Why we have to Use BBM on iPhone or Android:

It is extremely safe. We are used to circulate our conversations on platforms such as, especially, WhatsApp. And not a good idea. Your safety is rather weak. Above all a bad idea to have conversations with sensitive information, or even talk to transmit her bank details, passwords or labor. You know, anyone can read your talks WhatsApp. Instead, BBM is the platform used by global leaders to avoid being spied on. During the riots in London in 2011, the authorities could not intercept communications between organizers used as BBM.

Avoid spam, you just talk anyone. WhatsApp As we can locate through our phone number, it’s easy for him to receive spam. Any business, database, etc.. you have our number can ( and does) send promotions, information, etc.. BBM uses PIN, a unique identifier delivered by himself, which makes us speak only who have our PIN (tip : it is good idea to publicly handing our PIN ) and we accept your invitation. It also protects us from potential stalkers who have got our number. As a bonus, it shows the last time you connected. Responds want avoiding blame.

BBM performance is perfect. It works perfect: agile, without crashes, no load times. BBM was important to get in good shape to App Store and Google Play for the first impression to be as positive as possible. Had it come in worse shape, would be doomed to many.

Reasons for not using BBM

BBM have no desktop application. It was perhaps the best shot I could show in relation to WhatsApp, as at the time did Line. A desktop application to a messaging application is extremely useful to speed up time, not to lose productivity, communicate more quickly. Stop the workflow to respond to a message is much faster if done from the computer itself that changing device. It would have been nice to bring BBM desktop client.

No BBM for Windows Phone. BlackBerry is logical that that is (yet? ) Rival to storm the third place in mobile platforms. Although this seems utopian and seeing trends either. But leave out the service to the growing Windows Phone users who can not communicate with us via BBM.

Comes with less functionality than the competition. Skype, Viber, WeChat, Line. applications that can be better or worse in some areas than BBM, have more features. I do not support an application saturate Line style and simplicity to lose my beloved, but somewhat strange, such as videoconferencing. Fill the application of stickers and extensions that could be considered crapware, I leave to your choice.

iMessage : Blackberry Messenger (BBM) Alternative on iPhone and iPad

At a time when rumors of BlackBerry Messenger coming to Android and iPhone are becoming increasingly strong (although never confirmed until now), the folks at Apple had iOS 5 and did not go unnoticed iMessage, the messaging application that will unite all devices with the operating system.

With iMessage, users who have their hands on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch will be able to send text, photos, videos, location and contacts to any user with iOS 5 on WiFi or 3G.

“I think we have the best IM client on the iPhone. Our customers love it. But what about our customers’ iPad and iPod touch? We asked for it, “said Scott Forstall, senior vice president of IOS Software at WWDC 2011 in San Francisco to announce the application.

iMessage also includes the capability of group messaging and data that show whether the messages were delivered or read the classics and notices when they are writing in real time. This system is built on the Messaging application and ensure it has secure encryption. And if all these options do not seem that BBM can turn it into a killer, plus you can start a conversation on a computer iOS and continue it in another.

To this we must add that you will enjoy the new Center Notifications iOS 5 when the new version of the platform to reach users in spring (autumn in Spain) … until then, RIM has time to react before it is too late.
