    Default Join the Official iMore.com BBM Group!

    With BBM now on iOS, we thought it would be fun to start up an official iMore BBM Group! To join, go ahead and scan the code below:
    Join the Official iMore.com BBM Group!-imore-bbm-scan.png
    If you're having trouble joining the group, here's how to do it.

    1. Open BBM on your iOS device and tap the three small dots at the bottom right of your screen. This should reveal a 'Join Group' option. Tap it.

    2. Point your camera towards the barcode. Hold still, and BBM will scan and add you to the group.

    3. That's all there is to it! Now, when you tap the 'groups' tab at the bottom of the screen, iMore.com should be in your groups listing.

    I'm mad you have to be on a waiting list to use it. It's ridiculous! How long before I get an email?

    I'd be frustrated too. I have seen some force close then reopen the app, and it works for them.

    There are settings within the app that will let you control how the notifications are handled.

    It's iMessage with a PIN number vs a Email .. I don't know one person who uses a blackberry anymore ... If this app came out in like 2008 I could see the use. But to each their own just because I don't know anyone who uses it doesn't mean others don't or wont.
    I am glad to see blackberry finally opened it up but on the flip side wasn't bbm the one thing blackberry had vs others ?

    I tried scanning the barcode and as soon as it comes into focus BBM jumps right back to the group tab without adding the imore group. Anyone else experience this?

    There is alot more/new to BB10 and even BBM (voice/video calls / screensharing) than you would have seen in the old BBOS 7.1< granted some this are not there from the old bbos either.
