You may have noticed RIM ramp up the amount of webcasts lately in order to reach out to more developers. I have joined quite a few of them and always find them enjoyable, useful and I gain a lot from each of them. 

RIM has one more webcast planned for the year and it is entitled 'Integrating apps with BlackBerry Messenger on BlackBerry 10'. You'll know that many apps have BBM integration and this webcast will take you through the process of making your own app part of the BBM Social Platform. 

Some of the topics to be covered during the webcast are:

  • Benefits of the BBM Social Platform 
  • Features of the BBM Social Platform (including: BBM SP Invite To Download, BBM SP Profile Boxes, BBM SP User Profile, BBM Chat) 

So, if you are interested in making your app BBM integrated, sign up for the webcast today.

When: December 6th, 2013
Time: 4pm EST

Don't forget, if you did miss any of the previous webcasts you can now catch on them on-demand

Why does this blog always turn into an English class? I read your mistake but knew right away what you meant to type.

It would be great if RIM would also add a 'best practices' for social integration portion. Some recent Gameloft games (Nova for example) ask if you want to post a message to bbm after almost anything happens in the game! I paid for Nova but can't even play it because of this :/


If a developer wants to force BBM integration on a demo, or free app, fine. I'll still grumble, but it's free. IF however it's a paid app, and its core functionality has absolutely nothing to do with BBM (Screen Muncher is a good example), then the dev should have NO right forcing us to integrate the app I just paid for. Ask me once, and if I refuse, leave me the hell alone.

Forcing integration with paid apps is a cheap tactic, and will only serve to steer customers away from that dev's apps, and become frustrated with RIM for allowing such practices in the first place.

Same goes for PlayBook apps that won't work unless you accept gps/file/Internet/identifying info.
