    I used to have BBM channels on my Z10, and now that BBM for Android and iOS gets it, I can start updating my Allison Stokke channel on all my phones...

    Right about time!

    It's a basically a newsfeed, but shows whatever the channel owner wants to show. You find channels for tech news, cat pics, whatever you want. You subscribe to them and then you view them in BBM. At least that's how I understand it.

    "Android users"? Aren't we too snobbish to let Androiders in the same channel?...

    If I could I would like to ask questions of folks who are using BBM. I used to use it...when I was on BB...but now I am on iPhone, which means I have iMessage. My question is: Why do you use BBM? Do you use it instead of iMessage (not sure if that is possible)? If it is possible to use it instead of iMessage, do you find the environment easier, better designed...?
    I know I liked the BBM environment when I used BB. I have experienced iMessage...confusion/disconnect/something over the last few months and might like to try a different environment...at least for me and my family of iDevice users.

    I just downloaded the BBM app. When I used it before I was able to funnel all of my texting into the app (in the same way that iMessage handles all iMessage and regular text messages). I don't see a way to do this with the iOS BBM app. So...is it only usable with other BBM'ers or am I missing something? Just looking for a different environment to text from.

    BBM is like Whatsapp, in that you can only message people who have BBM. The messages you send will be seen only in their BBM apps, and there's no way to view those messages otherwise. Also, it doesn't support SMSes, so you can't send those unlike Google Hangouts.

    More features include joining groups and having group functions like picture sharing and lists, not to mention Group messaging, and lastly Channels which is, as some have mentioned, newsfeeds that people can join and view the pictures and text posts you put up.
