Messenger for Facebook updated and goes on sale

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.

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.
