After only a few hours into the initial release, BBM had made its way into the top charts for the Google Play store. It already has a great start for iOS users as well so it's great to see that it's fired up Android users too. As of now BBM is riding high in Google Play with downloads in the 10,000,000 - 50,000,000 range, putting it in the number one position for new releases! That's fantastic!

We knew immediately after the original (botched) launch that BBM would be a hit on other platforms as Google Trends show it was hugely popular. The proof is there now and we can see that BBM is taking off on both iOS and Android and we can hope that it continues to see even more traction as updates roll out to bring more features like BBM Video and BBM Channels.

Do note that it's the Top *NEW* Free listing. It is 7th in the Top Free listing, which is pretty sweet too.

What is this Bitstrips noise? Heh.

goku_vegeta

I just checked my Note 3, it's in both the top free and top new free sections.

It's #12 today in the Top Free listing. Seems to be quite a dynamic list.

Hopefully the app just doesn't get deleted. If ppl can add friends quickly it'll stay num 1

If the app is deleted, it'll also be deleted from installed numbers list. So, > 10 mln is pretty solid ones which are present on devices.

Playbook007

Everyone that has joined Bbm are up and running and they have no complaints to the degree they ate going to delete. In fact most ate quite impressed. All my friends now are on BBM and that is going to stay.

Trolls should be forced to use BB10!

Please note that these download numbers are not real time. Think they are 2 days behind... so the number could be actually way bigger :)

"Free' is free. "Use" is another matter.

Financial "profit" for Blackberry is critical.

Maybe successful business for BBM will bring BB (the company) out of the UN-interesting.

Genghis2k3

Most new apps start out in this range?

JAS0NB0URNE

Most new apps do not top the list of downloaded recent apps..

Posted with my BlackBerry Q10

jstarett

Yes most new apps do top but they don't hold it for long. We will see how long it stays at the #1 spot.

kthhrrsn

Most new very sought after, name brand apps may make it to #1 downloaded status. I'm sure that each new Angry Birds or Facebook release does. But that different than most "new" apps overall. The vast majority of apps get zero notice from most users & only get a handful of downloads. Having BBM in the tens of millions of downloads range puts them up there with the premier apps.

Most new apps are not even downloaded once so how does your statement make any sense at all?

jhimmel

No. Most new apps do not. You're no going to sell that one...lol

Ummm... no it isn't. This is a huge number of downloads by any standards. Indeed I would be surprised if it weren't the most successful launch of any messaging app in history.

gregorylkelly

Really, 10,000,000-50,000,000 downloads in the first couple days is standard? Those Android developers have it pretty nice. All they have to do is release a new app to get over 10 million downloads....

sf49ers

it is the most downloaded app in history during the first 24 hours of launch..the previous leading one was Angry Birds with some 3 million downloads in the first 24 hours (IOS and Android combined)

Ultimately it matters only if it catches up to and surpasses whatsapp or not. (i hope it does)

Whatsup is not the competition. It's a standard texting app with little room for growth. It's done.

Posted via CB10

mwdugas

It only matters to the people that continually compare. Why can't people just accept that 10 Million downloads in the first couple days is a huge number and good for BlackBerry. Despite all the negative crap hovering over the company the last year, this is a GOOD thing. End of discussion. The truth is, people will always complain and find something wrong. No matter how good it is.

You're delusional. Do you know how many Windows Phone, Symbian, Asha, etc, users there are whom are using WhatsApp? Do you honestly think they'll just throw away their phones and get Android or iPhones just for BBM (yes, I'm not mentioning Blackberry phones).

sanaking

Exactamente, and there's Open Whatsapp so folks on more platforms than you mentioned also using WA, aka they're killing it! And will continue for some time. Plus it's simple, no PIN to know or find out-- you can know which of your friends are on the app and start using it right away, that was probably the game changer.

More importantly, is 10m - 50m a standard range used for this activity? Understanding the author is not the source of the info, that's not very informative considering the 10 million mark was mentioned days ago.

Yes that is a range that Google play store gives for app installs.

I've never even heard anyone complain about BBM video before.

wincyUt

You want share a taste of the sweet stuff (Voice, Video and Channels) and BlackBerry should then monetize those features once people are hooked. :)

mwdugas

I agree. Wait a few months and let BBM be the norm for people before giving them Voice and Video. Give it to them cheap ($0.99) or something. But make sure you charge something for the services.

Not approved by the NSA. My personal Q10

BlackJack-21

I can smell world domination when other features makes its way onto the app.

mscloutier

One app to rule them all....BBM

KPMcClave

The question is, and I think it's the biggest question, will it be too late by the time they roll those features out to the cross-platform folks? I don't see enough in the Android BBM version right now to keep people around waiting for the updates, especially with BBRY's battered rep now.

In fact, as someone who used a BB for 7 years until May, and loved using BBM, I'm rather underwhelmed with the Android version.

I'm just getting flashbacks to PlayBook's rollout. Half-baked and soon forgotten. If they let a good chunk of those who d/l the app this week uninstall, I don't think they'll get them back. They need to get the additional features out there yesterday.

Maal628

Let's hope new users stay active. That's my only concern.

Agreed. My wife and daughter both didn't care about BBM, and now that's the main messenger app they use. Android and iPhone. Works great too.

BlackBerry should have made this move in 2010-2011 and they would have kept some market share. It's not too late as we see now, BlackBerry is still loved.. hoping too see future products COMPETING specs to specs hardware wise with Samsung and iPhone.... that's the only path for their comeback. Peace out

Dhamp2g

I think its mostly curiosity

neoberry99

Nothing wrong with curiosity. I think it's enough their to keep them using it.

boldbalance

I agree with you on that. BlackBerry should have done this shortly after the iPhone was unveiled. But even after all this time, it's evident that people still care about BBM. Cross-platform BBM is BlackBerry's last chance of being relevant in the technology world and it's a critical mission in which they can't afford to fail.

Posted via CB10

shootsscores

QNX is highly relevant in the tech world. However, it remains to be seen if it will maintain a presence in the cell phone world. As far as real time operating systems go, QNX is the go to technology.

boldbalance

Oh I know that QNX is still relevant. I agree with you there. I was referring to the survival of BlackBerry as a tech company if that makes sense.

bbontherise47

I assume you are just talking consumer device right because in the enterprise, it is the standard and it is only getting better. People get so caught up on device sales they completely forget about the enterprise software and the 25,000+ installations. that's a big deal. Also only one to have US and Canadian government certification, Nato, etc.(talking enterprise remember not devices and FIPS). BlackBerry isn't going anywhere and once channels, voice, and screen share are added cross platform and they start making ad money while keeping it free to the customer, BAM, money in the bank.

That all being said, with BlackBerry probably going private, no one will hear the success or profits. I hate to see the layoffs but getting headcount and MFG down 50% is going to save them tons of money. They already purchased back the stock from carriers, they are being smarter about MFG, decreasing device count, it won't be long before BlackBerry see's profit.

Michael J Duffy

I think that once BlackBerry is private the company will share their successes and (hopefully) control the media.

my sister and brother in law just got BB< on their iPhones, used it for three days, and switched to Z10's... I know this isn't the norm by any means but I don't think it is that bad, it might actually make people who haven't seen a new BB10 device check it out before running their mouths about how their device is way better... spoiler alert, its not.

I haven't had one person tell me or give me a good reason as to why their device is better... until we talk about instagram.

bspence87

Instagram doesn't make the device better, it makes the developer support better, equally because of maturity of the platform as anything else.

I'm on vacations and haven't honestly checked crackberry as much as I used to which was basically every 40 minutes but I gotta admit that sometimes I just don't believe this is all really happening! I mean on the podcast Kevin spoke of how he was in disbelief to see some users he never thought of seeing showing their pin off.. in my case I'm surrounded by BlackBerry haters /troll but hardcores! And what really annoys me is that most of them don't even know BlackBerry 10 is nor even that is different than the Previous OS's... that being said all my social networks are now showing pins all over the place! And even people that initially posted a photo hating on BBM have now delete it and posted their new bbm!! Is like iPhone fans they don't care they can get a phone to do what their platform does for them a lot cheaper in lots of places but as long as people keep saying apple rocks and that hype continues they will keep selling millions and millions! Same is happening with BBM! A lot of people just getting it for the hype really hope the trend continues!!

Whatts app has a distinct advantage because it connects people secretly without their permission. How long will it take an individual to get 100 whatts app contacts versus 100 BBM contacts?
Personally I prefer BBM but how long will it take whatts app users to replace their network of friends or will they grow frustrated and give up.

Since the launch is so great...
Now BlackBerry team need to work hard & bring next update for ios & android ASAP...
I mean for voice & video call

We know many of us succeed attract their friend & people surrounding.
They did download it but people keeps on asking... what's the differences with whatsap...
And I'm happy to explain to my friend over & over again, but it seems like they keeps on went back to whatsap

The D&R sign, the powerful 'PING', the discreet BBpin, the customized picture & status, the broadcast message.... these are our pride... but they (ios & android) seems like not care much

So... let give them the 'ride' of BBM by bringing what whatsap don't have.

I have not used BBM Channels yet so this might be a stupid comment. Because BBM doesn't run over the internet - it goes through their own network - could it be used to stream/deliver media in a faster more predictable way than netflix over the internet? I understand that netflix is moving into content creation which is good but their delivery is internet limited - especially outside the US. If BBM could provision their network capacity to to support massive media streaming (or even downloads - as wifi and LTE get faster) they might have a monetizing opportunity.

Sidhartha Tripathy

I am a WP 8 user and now planning to buy to BB 10 device as well (Z30). Earlier i used BB Pearl as well I used all Mobile OS except iOS. Just have few points after my initial current assessment on BB and how can BB bring back users again. In my view the best and proven path is to make android/ios/wp8 users acquainted with bb services like bbm now and by adding more and more functionality into bbm and outpacing whatsapp and all related apps, providing best user interface, functionality, faster release cycle with new functions and aiming wp8 as well. if possible release bbm for other lesser known OS for feature phones. Plan to include BB Hub functionality into BBM or as new app to let users get more and more functionality of Hub, any other services which BB think can be made cross platform try to plan for new app and release them. Simultaneously plan for new unique functionality to include in BB OS, great HW at 4.3 inch and 5 Inch size with great battery life also a cheaper device for emerging countries with huge population like India, China, Brazil, Russia, APAC etc but with good speed (processor) and battery life. Another point if BB wants to be acquired by some one i think MS is the right company as the services can be made available to both OS and compliment each other like Skype, Skydrive, XBox, BB Hub, BBM, Office etc. also without ditching any of the OS (WP8 & BB 10) and HW (Nokia, Surface, BB Z10, Z30) all can co exist with dual boot or different devices with all services. In my view Apple got into this situation primarily for iTunes / iPod and the way people got used to those before the lunch of iPhone apart from obliviously great HW but i still believe BB can make a great comeback with right strategy and planning, tie up with Google, SAP, Cisco, Lenovo, Samsung will not work well as per my view...I installed BBM in my wife's Android and waiting for my BB Z30 to kick start...Invited several of my family and friends to join BBM...All the best BB for BBM adoption...Sid

Trolls should be forced to use BB10!

Thank you Blackberry team! I have been waiting this app! It's very userfriendly! And smooth!

I think it will be the norm in communication because you can add ppl with NFC bar codes or just pin very quickly. And with Whatsapp a lot of ppl dont know what it is and you have to give out your number.

BlackBerry needs to role out video and audio without too much delay.

BlackBerry needs to produce a Windows Phone app. They also need to figure the video and voice functionality ASAP.

I'm glad to see people are downloading BBM. Unfortunately in my social circle, it doesn't have too many fans. For every FB friend who posts their new PIN, 10 people write a negative comment.

I hope BlackBerry will also introduce screen sharing to Android and iOS. Anyone knows if this is feasible?
