BBM version now available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone

By Adam Zeis on 30 Mar 2012 11:38 am EDT

If you're a BlackBerry Beta Zone member, a new version of BBM is now available. This update brings us to version and includes a number of fixes. No fancy updates this time around, but an update is an update, right?

Fixes include:

  • Missing BBM icon on OS 5.0
  • Issues scrolling up through older messages on OS 6.0
  • Issue selecting all the text by scrolling up/down in the inline display name and personal message fields
  • Scrolling quickly in the inline edit view allowed the focus to move out onto your avatar
  • Pressing the Enter key while the focus is on your avatar initiated the inline edit view
  • In the inline display name or personal message field, smileys were highlighted when added via the "Add Smiley" menu option
  • Unable to scroll in certain directions within the inline display name and personal message field
  • No "Save" menu option or prompt dialog when the inline display name or personal message field only contains smileys
  • No red splat on the BBM icon after deleting a group icon from the Home Screen and receiving a group notification
  • Notification view/today view does not show BBM Messages

If you're not yet a Beta Zone member, you should be. Hit the link below for more information and to download.

Some small but well needed changes and runs smoothly on 9900 with OS7.1.

Wow, seems the scrolling issue has finally been fixed now?

Edit: Still not a 100% fixed, but better I guess.


yeah, not 100% fixed as of yet. come on RIM.. why is it SO HARD to fix this scrolling issue???

also.. i hope soon BB group's icon can be customized with any image we would like to have, rather than those boring icons..
