When it comes to SnapChat on BlackBerry 10 most people know there is no official client offered as of yet and for months now, a native BlackBerry 10 app called Snap2Chat has been in beta courtesy of NemOry. It's a beautiful, fully featured app that really goes above and beyond what even SnapChat does when comes to interacting with the service and the features it offers but it has to be sideloaded which limits it's adoption for the masses.

Over the past little while now we've heard from a few developers working on native Snap Chat clients for BlackBerry 10 but none having been as vocal about it as NemOry, developer of Droid StoreWhere's My Phone and more. After having laid out the basics of the app previously, NemOry has been working hard to get a beta release out and it's now available. You'll need to grab your USB cables and load up the .BAR file to test things out but once that's over here's what you can expect.

With BlackBerry remaining a public company, a great number of us are obviously interested in what they can do to boost their valuation. As much as I hope they can sustain themselves as a mobile platform (software, services and handsets too), it’s a tough battle.

But BBM can survive even without BlackBerry as an independent platform. It’s now a cross platform (and still awesome) chat app. It has over 80 million users. It gets basically no value from Wall Street.

Sep 25, 2013 Game on: Google search trends shows BBM has a real shot at scoring in the multi-platform Instant Messaging game

Long time readers of CrackBerry know I'm a big fan of analytics and have often looked to Google Trends to gain insight into the demand for things like phones and apps. For the most part, looking at Google Trends data over the years has provided a pretty good representation of actual demand over time in the mobile realm, especially when comparing multiple items in a similar category.

With BBM's almost-launch this weekend, I was waiting for Google Trends date to come in so we could get a first impression of how it stands to fare against other multi-platform competitors in the mobile instant messaging space, including the likes of WhatsApp, Viber, WeChat and Snapchat. We know BBM has a large existing install base on BlackBerry Smartphones to the tune of 60 million active users, and we know this past weekend it drove over 1 million downloads on iOS/Android before the launch was halted. The almost-launch also caused a nice big spike on Google Trends.
