BBM updated for Android and iOS

BlackBerry Messenger has been updated for Android and iOS today, bringing performance improvements, bug fixes, and new features. The update also brings support for the iPod Touch and iPad.

New to BBM is the ability to invite a contact to join a BBM group via email, which is handy if you don’t know your friend’s BBM PIN. Sharing BBM PINs have also been made easier with the addition of QR barcode you can scan.
