When BlackBerry Messenger for iOS and Android first launched it was only available for iPhones and Android handsets, but it doesn’t look like too many people were left out: BBM was downloaded more than 10 million times in its first 24 hours. That said, even more people will be able to use it starting today: BlackBerry just announced the iOS app will now support iPods and iPads too, assuming you’re using iOS 6 or higher. Additionally, the company pushed out bug fixes that should address two major problems: unusually high battery drainage (that’s on Android), as well as a glitch that led to missing contact names (this was a problem with the iOS app).
On both platforms, BlackBerry has made it easier to find friends who are also using BBM. You’ll also get more options for sharing your BBM code. In the Android app, specifically, it should now be easier to sort and filter BBM group lists. Meanwhile, the iOS application has been updated with improved support for right-to-left languages. And that about sums it up — be sure to hit up the download links below. Because really, who doesn’t like a few bug fixes? by engadget
