BlackBerry Messenger for Android was one of the most awaited Android apps few months back which was scheduled for an official release on September 21 but was leaked before BlackBerry could make it go live on the Play Store leading to some issues from the company’s end. Though the leaked APK was disabled, it took a lot of time for BlackBerry to release it officially in the Play Store. Today, another APK of BBM for Android has been leaked which is only for Android 2.3 Gingerbread version of the OS.
BlackBerry had announced that it would release BBM for Android 2.3 soon, after which the APK was leaked. It has been tested and found working on Android 2.3.
A few noticeable changes that can be seen in the Gingerbread is the change of colors in some areas. BBM for Android 2.3 does not include BBM channels which was introduced in Android 4.0+ version of the app recently.
With this approach, BlackBerry is keen on getting more users to use its BBM service but I don’t find many people returning to the app though the numbers of initial sign up were huge.
