Ok, I admit it. The title is kind of misleading in the fact it makes you think Kik is just now being supported. This is not the case. Kik has been compatible with the BlackBerry Torch 9800 since it's release and is expected to work with other BlackBerry 6 devices as they launch further on down the road. This is just basically a reminder for those of you out there that have a BlackBerry Torch.

You can download Kik through BlackBerry App World today and it will work just fine on your BlackBerry Torch. Since a lot of applications will need to be updated for BlackBerry 6 compatability, it's nice to see some that are already up and ready to go. Kudos to the folks at Kik for sure.

I ♥ this app & seeing as though I'm picking up a Torch very soon, I am very happy to see Kik support the Torch/BB6! I was kinda scared I was going to have to upgrade my SMS plan from 200/$5 to an "arm & a leg"....whew

Kik is a neat app. But it's still needs some work. When sending a message, the contact has dropped the name and only reflects the telephone number. So, If i don't know the their number, I have to to to my contact list, rather than the Kik Messenger, to send the message.

Anybody else got this problem?

I thought I was the only one. I hope they change it back.
