BBM for iOS hits App Store, waiting for Apple’s approval


At last the inevitable has happened. BlackBerry Messenger has been submitted to the App Store, and is now  waiting  for Apple’s approval. This comes after a video leaked of the popular messaging app working on Android by way of beta. News of the app hitting the App Store came thanks to BlackBerry’s Alex Kinsella putting out this tweet on Twitter:

We would be shocked if BBM for iPhone ran into some kind of snag to be cleared, as they’re plenty of similar services already available through the store, including Line, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and of course Google Hangouts. All we can do now is wait.
