Third party Facebook chat app Messenger now available from BlackBerry World

Developer Nemory Oliver, behind the Snap2Chat app, has been working on his next app, a native Facebook messenger app. In has been available to download via the CrackBerry forums in beta form. Now, after a few versions, Messenger is now ready for primetime and is available from BlackBerry World.

If you didn't out the beta version, you can take a look at our hands on video to see the app in action. It's a pretty swift app and if you use Facebook chat a lot then you should definitely give it a look.

Messenger is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices and costs $1.99. Like I said it's slick app and runs fast. It's native and we should support developers continually bringing us great apps to use.

One thing to note is that Messenger doesn't support replying to group chats. This is due to Facebook API limitations. If this was currently possible the developer would have implemented it.
