Third party Facebook Messenger app, Messenger, made its way to BlackBerry World after being available in beta via the CrackBerry Forums for the past couple of months. Only a few days later, we are seeing an update to the app. There are a few tweaks to the app, including a new icon and a splash screen. I've been enjoying Messenger a lot.

Messenger isn't headless yet but it is something the developer is working on. Along with this update, Messenger also goes on sale. The regular price is $1.99 but for the next 5 days you can get it for $0.99. It is available on all BlackBerry 10 devices. If you want to see Messenger in action you can check out our hands-on video. Bear in mind that this hands-on was with a beta version. For the most part though this is what you'll see in the official version.
