Update: The app is now live on the App Store.

After the BBM apps prematurely started rolling out for iPhone and Android and were abruptly pulled late last month, BlackBerry finally confirmed today that it’s officially kicking off the roll out of the apps. In a blog post, the company announced that the BBM apps will be available for both iPhone and Android within the next few hours through the App Store, Google Play, and Samsung’s App Store:

The demand for BBM on Android and BBM on iPhone continues to be amazing. About six million people signed up for information about BBM at As you know, in just seven hours, about one million Android users were using the unreleased version of BBM for Android. What you don’t know is that more than one million people have found creative ways to “side load” BBM on their iPhone…

MTN came to Nigeria at a time
when nobody wanted to invest in
Nigeria, at a time when Nigerians
did not have phones. Even Zenith
Bank refused to loan MTN cash
to operate, UBA rejected MTN’s offer but today see the
difference. At least we all know the story of
the only civilian unelected
President in Nigeria – Goodluck
Jonathan. We know how the
people said he was not going to
be President; they even made him acting-President. Today the rest is
history. What about Cowbell? When they
came to Nigeria, they made milk
in a sachet, Peak was laughing at
them – they said Cowbell was milk
for the poor – but they were
right! 3-million poor people could afford N10 a day for a sachet of
milk. Oya, do the math – 3million
people buying milk at N10.00-
that was N30million every single
day. In a month they grossed
N900million (almost N1billion). Even Peak had to make sachet
milk in order to survive in the
market. So what have people told you?
What have they said you cannot
do, or you do not qualify for,or
you do not have experience for?
They told Cowbell, they told
Goodluck, they told MTN, but today the story has changed. I have a feeling
something is
changing for you today! They will change their
strategies just to
keep in step with you. Don’t listen
to what people are saying or what life is showing you… YES,
YOU CAN. Success is not about
where you graduated from, or
what grade you graduated with,
but what graduates out of you.

Five years late, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) rolling out for iPhone

BlackBerry just announced another disaster quarter and is currently valued at under the value of its assets, yet despite public pleading, no one wants to buy them. They also just laid off 4,500 of their remaining employees and left the consumer market.

But we’re not here to talk about the horrific financials of an imploding company. We’re here to bring the news that Blackberry released BBM (a very capable IM client) for iOS and Android today. It is currently available in Eastern hemisphere countries and is making its way around the globe.

In 2008, this would have been bigger news. Now, you can use it to ask your remaining BlackBerry friends which color iPhone they will be getting.

Update: It looks like the app has disappeared from the stores it has already hit.

Holy Spirit and Kindness

To you who are ready for the truth, I say this: love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives a hard time, respond with energies of prayer for that person. If someone slaps you in the face, stand there and take it. If someone grabs your shirt, gift wrap your best coat and make a present of it. If someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit for tat stuff. Live generously.” ( Luke 6 :27-30)
