BBM is a FREE messaging app available for iPhone and other smartphones. BBM has unique features to protect your privacy and keep you in control:
• Retract – The ability to take back messages and photos, even after you’ve sent them. Retract before they’ve been ‘R’ (Read) and they’ll never know! *
• Timer – The ability to set a timer so that a message or photo can only be viewed for a set amount of time before it disappears.* Glympse allows you to do the same with location!
• Private Chat – A special chat mode that disappears without a trace when you’re finished.
• The BBM PIN – A way to share your contact information, without sharing your phone number or email address. This keeps you in control of who can send you messages at all times. Once blocked, they have no way of contacting you.
PLUS, BBM HAS EVERYTHING YOU EXPECT FROM A MESSAGING APP:
• Free voice calling between BBM Contacts with BBM Voice
• Quickly share photos, files, documents, voice notes and more
• Know when messages have been delivered (D’s) and read (R’s)
• See when contacts are responding to your message
• BBM is always on and always connected – no app to open
• Hundreds of Stickers and Emoticons for every mood and emotion let you express yourself
• Allow contacts to view your location live on a map, powered by Glympse
CHAT WITH A GROUP
• Invite additional BBM contacts to join a chat to make things more lively! Join at any time, and it ends when everyone leaves - up to 250 BBM contacts in one chat!
• BBM Groups – Setup a permanent BBM Group with your close friends or co-workers - not only can you chat, but also share pictures in a group Album, assign tasks to group members, and create calendar events for group members. Permanent BBM Groups can have up to 50 members.
• Broadcast messages – Get the word out in a flash by sending a broadcast message to multiple BBM contacts at one time.

* While these features are designed to remove the message or picture the recipient’s BBM chat view, they do not prevent recipients from capturing an image of the content by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device. Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view, but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.
