Blackberry Messenger pentru iOS a fost lansat si retras din App Store



  Dupa luni intregi de dezvoltare si asteptare, iata ca in cursul zilei de ieri Blackberry Messenger a fost lansat in App Store Noua Zeelanda si in alte cateva de pe glob. Cei de la Blackberry pregatisera o lansare internationala a aplicatiei, insa la doar cateva ore dupa ce aplicatia era deja disponibila in acele App Store-uri si in Google Play, compania canadiana a decis sa o retraga. Motivul? Aplicatia pentru Android a generat anumite probleme de functionare pe care BlackBerry nu a reusit sa le rezolve in timp util, asa ca a decis sa opreasca lansarea si sa retraga aplicatia din toate magazinele de aplicatii.

Prior to launching BBM for Android, an unreleased version of the BBM for Android app was posted online. The interest and enthusiasm we have seen already – more than 1.1 million active users in the first 8 hours without even launching the official Android app – is incredible. Consequently, this unreleased version caused issues, which we have attempted to address throughout the day.

Our teams continue to work around the clock to bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it’s ready and we know it will live up to your expectations of BBM. We are pausing the global roll-out of BBM for Android and iPhone. Customers who have already downloaded BBM for iPhone will be able to continue to use BBM. The unreleased Android app will be disabled, and customers who downloaded it should visit to register for updates on official BBM for Android availability.

As soon as we are able, we will begin a staggered country roll-out of BBM for Android and continue the roll-out of BBM for iPhone. Please follow @BBM on Twitter for the latest updates and go to to sign-up for updates about BBM for Android and iPhone. These issues have not impacted BBM service for BlackBerry.

Cei care au descarcat aplicatia pentru iOS o vor putea utiliza in continuare, insa restul vor trebui sa astepte pana in momentul in care BlackBerry va decide ca aplicatia este pregatita si o va lansa din nou.
