Always loved this app. I have tried to stay loyal for almost 10 years now on BBM. Other platforms have copied and become highly competitive and even though my BBM friends list is about 20% of what it used to be I've stayed. However BlackBerry you're making it difficult to be loyal. The D and R are why I use this app, and others have it now too but I like BBM. At first I thought these were removed but they are just really tiny. At 55 I need bigger icons, not smaller, or at least the ability to modify their size. Typed from my PRIV...
OMG I hate the new UI and theme! Why don't you just let us use our own wallpaper for the background or a solid color? Let us choose a color or give us a dark theme. This is awful.
3 updates in 4 day, now version 188.8.131.52 and sending file in HD issue still not fixed.. it's major bug, very annoying and make this app useless for me if not fixed.
Hate the new look. What a rip off of WhatsApp. I've always been a supporter of BBM with my friends but what's the point. It's not even a BlackBerry Product anymore. And I see the R's and D's are gone now, guess that supposed be make it easier for WhatsApp users to switch? Yeah good luck with that.
I don't mind the new UI EXCEPT the horrid new chat backgrounds. It's ugly, childish, and distracting. Please at least provide an option to have a blank background.
Not happy with the new UI. Some may like it and it's fine for default. The chat background is childish and not great for business oriented usage. Lack of customization for the chat background and theme (completely dropped dark theme which was already there) is enough to make me uninstall and reinstall previous version. Then there is the new D/R indicators used to be blue D circle, now it's blue R that you can barely see. Used to be able to know by glancing at colour. Now you have to focus on the physical colour of a tiny, tiny letter. Step back in UI design. Let me k of when you have a better version. For now I am downgrading.
BBM is renewing its look and feel! We're making it more fun and friendly to use, with new experiences and activities that you can share with friends.
