    Default Where can I download BBM?

    Im looking around where I can download the APK file for BBM.. I found 1 but it doesn't install on my iPhone I see the icon on it but doesn't work.. I just deleted it. Is possible to get malware or something on my iPhone 5S by just downloading a link like that ?

    iOS apps don't use apk

    Just wait until Blackberry releases it.

    Just delete it. Then be patient.
    It'll probably be out in a week or two.

    I used an ipa file to get BBM on my iPhone but you have to be jailbroken in order to download it. It should be out soon because they are back to testing the android version so as soon as they are ready with that then the app for both platforms will drop. There was never a problem with the iOS version anyways it had been tested and ready to go when it initially dropped in the App Store. It works perfect for me but there is a lot missing which will probably come in future updates. Best to wait for the real thing now.

    It would be better to wait. Any updates on the release can be found at BBM.com. It would be ideal so you don't mess up your phone.

    Blackberry doesn't have server resources to sustain the BBM load for iOS and Android.

    It's more convenient to blame it on a beta leak, but 1.1 million leaks? That's one heck of a leak in such a short time. Is it believable? Well from which server/channel or where was this leak distributed? If there was, I'd have known about it.


    Posted via BlackBerry Z10 <---$715 later and still waiting for apps

    Yup, I knew about this. My friend did the same and he still has the ipa file with him...
