BlackBerry Wants iOS and Android Users to Line Up for BBM
Submitted by Anders Batten on
After many, many hiccups BBM is finally available on the Apple App Store, but with a catch. BlackBerry announced today that BBM will begin rolling out to Google Play, the Apple App Store and in select Samsung App Stores, but they need new users to get in line before they can use it.
The company says about six million people showed interest in BBM at BBM.com, and about one million Android users are already using a leaked version of the messenger. This is why BlackBerry has started a "line-up system to ensure a smooth roll out." To avoid a repeat of last month's server issues, new users must enter their email address to hold their spot in line after they download the app. BBM fans who already signed up at BBM.com can start using the app immediately without waiting.
