Blackberry recently had an update go through, that changed their uniquely styled emojis, to a run of the mill version. BBMs original emojis and stickers were the sole reason my wife and i used the platform. With this change, i would suggest to just use whats app instead. I am very dissapointed.
New emojis suck. Was previously better than whatsapp but developers decided to copy whatsapp and made them worse. Like purple devils? What were you thinking? Really the only reason i was staying with bbm all this time. The emojis used to relay consise emotions. Stickers are a total mess. Allow users to create custom favourite panels from only the ones we like from each set instead of cluttering the entire panel by only allowing entire sets to be turned off or on.
Was a 5* app, but recent changes have deteriorated my opinion. My number one objection? Peeking messages, I want to just have the icon change and to put a message to my smart watch, not show anyone that may be looking at my phone the messages I receive or who they're from. Please return the old functionality
Why oh why must I have pop up notifications!?!? Why can't I have the option to suppress these?! Horrible. After using bbm for 13 years I am now going to have to use another platform. Arghhhh.
The popup notification is horrible. There was a reason I disabled it in the last update--I was fine with just the symbol on the top of my notification bar updating. This new notification is annoying to the point where I might just uninstall.
4 star for new (bad) emoji update! Other than that - 5 star app!! Security : Military Grade. Privacy : No other app can match. Retract & Edit : Awesome. Groups : Top Notch with Lists & Events Group Control : Best in market with group administrator & password protection. (Even retrieving lost group is great in case admin loses phone or other situations) Glymps : Best way to share current location for limited time. Custom Notification : Breeze to setup and use. Voice Call : Better than cell reception! Video Call : No support between BB10&Android, but best clarity when connected. Contacts : Retains contacts even while you change device! Been using BBM from 7 years - never had issues. But please revert back latest emoji update, can't even distinguish between most of emojis unless staring at 6 inch -_-
