BlackBerry Messenger is the USP of BlackBerry mobile phones.

You can now use BBM 6 Connected Apps and text-chat with your friends from within games, use Foursquare to check-in and notify your friends and you can also share apps using BBM 6. The latest version of the messenger has been integrated with several social apps such as news apps, games and sports apps, productivity and multimedia apps also have been incorporated into the BBM 6 connected apps.
