BBM Channels

November 27, 2013 in Software

IMG_00001147With BBM channels finally being out of beta, I see a lot of potential for us here. Once cross platform Channels is released I’d like to start reaching more people in IT and helping the community to grow. For those with a BlackBerry device, be sure to update your BBM and join our channel using the PIN or bar code in this post. For those on Android or Apple devices, hold tight because I’m sure its in the pipes!

Let me know what topics interest you or strike up a chat in the channel for even faster response!

Cross Platform BBM

October 22, 2013 in Software

BlackBerry has finally put it its best application out for both iOS and Android! This time everyone can get it. Lets jump right in to it:

BBM for iPhone – https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/bbm/id690046600?mt=8
BBM for Android – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bbm

Don’t trust any other apps since there are many, many fakes out there. During the roll out the instructions are:

  • Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com from your Android or iPhone browser*
  • Once you install the app, open it, and enter your email address to hold your spot in line
  • We will email you as soon as you reach the front of the line and can start using BBM

It features the core elements of BBM but does not yet feature BBM Voice or Video. This launch has been a great success! I have not seen any service disruptions or issues chatting in groups with several device types. Great sign and makes me very happy!

Instagram now on Android

April 3, 2012 in Software

Now on Android!The once iPhone only app is now available on Android and fans are going nuts! Well, at least the majority who are heavy social media users. Instagram is a free app that includes 18 filters to make stylized photos. These photos can be shared then on various social networking platforms. The app itself is somewhat different from the iPhone version still. A feature that lets you change the tilt-shift and vignetting is not included but expected to be seen soon in an update. This version also may not work on all Android phones, or tablets. The most important thing is seeing it actually ported over and this project in progress! Way to go guys! Android fans rejoice! Pick up the free app today at the link below.
