    It's a great instant messenger app that's widely popular among bb users. I find the iOS experience to be very underwhelming.

    I ended up trying it worked good but I prefer Forums over chatting and iMessage works better for Messaging

    I think it's still popular among BB users. I don't know anyone else who's using it.

    I believe BBM is/was so popular because it's one of the only older messengers that's still widely used. It's reliable for me and I missed it a lot once I moved on from blackberry. I would like to see iMessage become a messenger. Not just use it as a way to text other iPhone users.

    I don't know about popular, outside of one selected group. Don't know anybody else with it. iMessage works the best for me.

    popular is relative. it really depends on what your group of friends use. it also varies a lot by region, like how viber is so popular in the UK but not in the states.

    generally though, BBM isn't even on the radar compared to the major (popular) messaging apps worldwide.

    Well, BBM does have some credibility being one of the most popular messengers even before messengers were the vogue thing. It thrived on the security of Blackberry's servers, and had good fluidity which to me is better than Whatsapp's, even now.

    I might even go as far as saying the iOS and Android versions of BBM are head and shoulders above Whatsapp.

    i don't agree it's popular, I have no friends using it, even the ones who still use a bb.

    I loved BBM on BlackBerry. It's terrible on iPhone. Deleted it.

    Same here! I've tried it a couple of times and didn't like it. I find iMessage and text works better for me.

    Is it popular? I am still to find anyone I know using it! And I found that the channels feature added nothing of substance to the experience either.

    Well , it's still more popular in some places and not so much in others. It's hit and miss IMO.

    I believe the allure is due to the anonymity of a pin based messaging client.

    I don't think it's very popular as some would have us believe for two reasons. One it's simply unreliable, and two that Ui is a mess, it clearly doesn't fit into the iOS 7 Ui design guidelines.

    If you would like an example of an app that seems to get it right look no further than telegram, beautiful interface, reliable, and secure.

    The newest update for BBM is live and it includes new features for free which previously cost money, it has also been updated with a fantastic new look and a bunch of other handy improvements to the app. You guys should give it another try, BBM is my favourite IM app other than iMessage and whatsapp is a close second.

    I have turned a lot of folks on to BBM lately and they like it better then iMessage and the Android messaging app. Some of them have started their own groups which is a good thing.

    I have and still use BBM with a lot of my BB friends. It's a really nice app to use but I like iMessage better.

    I'm still using it. My wife and I had blackberries and now I own an iPhone and she owns a note so that's our instant messaging app of choice. She refuses to go iPhone or use any other messenger. Lol. So between her and my best friend still using it I use it ALOT lol
