BBM is a perfectly fine app, but for some reason when you use it on Android or iOS devices, it almost feels like you have been transported into the world of BlackBerry 10. We guess this is to be expected since BBM is by BlackBerry and we guess the company wouldn’t mind a few iOS or Android users hopping on board the BlackBerry bandwagon.
That being said if you were hoping to get a look more in line with the design of your mobile operating system, you’re in luck. BlackBerry has recently released a new build for iOS users who signed up for BBM beta. With the latest update, BlackBerry has introduced a host of new improvements and features, one of which includes a slightly more iOS 8-friendly theme.
As you can see in the image above, gone is the black and blue finish of the BBM app and replaced with a whiter and “cleaner” theme. It isn’t 100% tuned to iOS 8 as there are some buttons and features that aren’t exactly in line with how iOS handles menus, but as far as an overall look is concerned, we have to say we are digging it.
The update also brings sticker support to group chats, better suggestions when trying to locate BBM friends, and more. This version has yet to be released to the public, but hopefully it won’t be too long until it does. In the meantime are you guys digging the iOS-theme?
