BBM for iOS updated with support for non-3G/4G iPad and iPod touch
As expected, BlackBerry has updated BBM for iOS with support for Wi-Fi-only iOS devices, including iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina display, and iPod touch devices, bringing several enhancements along with it.
Previously, the app only supported the iPhone and 3G version of the iPad. Sadly, BlackBerry still hasn't developed a user-interface specific for the iPad. Users will have to access the app on the iPad through doubling the pixels or using it the same size as an iPhone app.
As for improvements with the app, BlackBerry has added right-to-left language support, more options for sharing your BBM PIN Barcode, the ability to find your friends on other social networks who are also using BBM, and fixes an issue where some users would be missing BBM contact names.
The BlackBerry BBM for iOS app has been relatively popular on the App Store. According to the company, BBM added 20 million users in one week thanks to its cross-platform roll-out, and we suspect the addition of the iPad will help the number grow.
