We need an official LINE messenger by Naver now, please

kevin_fan

As usual, its unavailable for my device (Q10) here in South Korea. I don't even have GoogleTalk.

I think they already announced Viber. It will be out as soon as BB OS 10.2 is out.

It was NOT because of the 'get me this app'.
Wechat have been committed to develop for BB10 ever since last year if I recall correctly.
The good thing about Chinese business is they do business wherever there's money and demand.
They don't do favoritism unlike some apps developers.

Some say China is now the most capitalist state there is!!

Yet another stupid app gets Hub integration while BlackBerry bars Blaq from doing it when it is 100000x better. BlackBerry showing favoritism to devs is actually making me mad.

xiaohuaxing

Blaq is fake twitter. All the ones with integration is its own, real service

Posted via CB10

so what? They still don't deserve special treatment. Everyone gets Hub or no one does or THEY AT LEAST EXPLAIN HOW TO GET IT.

It's like WhatsApp, but with Voice Messaging service, which is especially handy to send voice message without the long distance charges.

We Chat also blocks senders by default--so no annoying unsolicited 3rd party (spam) advertisements, which is rapidly becoming a problem for using WhatsApp.

bmanchi

Just downloaded, seems ok. However, it appears that absolutely none of my contacts use this app so it won't be of any use to me.
It's great that the developers have made this native app though, I'm sure there are a lot of people who will use it.

Just because it's not supported initially for the q10 doesn't mean it won't be. Why not ask Wechat for q10 support.

None of my contacts use this. Every time I close app I have to log back in. It's not integrated into my hub. It's slow and crashes and does not let me log back in sometimes

Posted via CB10

clieman

To fix the login issue please use Facebook or link your email to WeChat. Then it will save your password.

Currently if login via SMS you'll need to log in every time you launch the app.

After whatsapp and bbm do anyone need wechat,line etc. I think once bbm is cross platform we chat n such products will be garbage. These apps have very bad user interface and are not that smooth.

Trust me wechat will be the exception... there is no look around or shake phone or bottle feature in BBM. Plus wechat is excellent to find asian chick's

jic999

what the heck, we get We Chat but I can't even get BBM Channels on Beta zone. I register , fill-out the required BBM Channel info submit and zippo happens .....on the positive side it took 2 days to get WECHAT very good news on the APP front.

terdferguson3

Sure glad I bought the Q10. Really getting tired of this.

Posted on my Q10.......while on the can

wiltonw

I am exciting about any native app for BB10. However, if it is an app that most likely monitored by an extreme government, and every download just like some kind of encouraging to them. I am not sure about that. Anyway, it is your choice. Good luck.

You dont need to switch. Apps are now coming in to satisfy all consumer. Some Asians use we chat a lot

Posted via CB10

mychriz8

I didn´t know WeChat since it was mentioned here but it seems that many people are happy because it´s available. In Germany the majority uses WhatsApp but hopefully they switch to BBM as soon as it arrives on iOS and Android. I hate it to use different messenger for different people! We need one unified system for the whole world. Maybe BBM makes the first step ;)

once downloaded and added my number and email, it still has not integrated ti my HUB?? Why?

Viber will be released with 10.2, bbm goes multi platform by end of September.

whatsapp is widely used by its inferior to we chat and line naver. We chat and line have or very soon will support for voice and video calls as well as a social networking element.

Viber, skype, we chat, line, twitter, instagram, kakao talk, google chat, yahoo chat, facebook, facebook chat, whatsapp, hangouts. So many services. Let's have 1 to rule them all! Hope BBM is up to scratch.

Great to have this so I can chat with my Chinese friends. Every app that enables a larger user base is a great move for BB's phones. Asia can be a great market for BB if they make the phone affordable to people with less income than western countries. Many Asians know of Blackberry but have always viewed it as being too expensive for them to own one.

willowtears

It seems that BlackBerry has been ignoring the Chinese market.

filmansantiago

If someone will say this is better than BBM, then I'll buy one, but if not, why bother. :)

Just when a friend messaged me asking about WeChat on BB10 2 says before it came out. I told her to sideload using the Chrome method and gave her links/instructions. She got frustrated because she can't make it work and I was about to do a video chat with her on the step-by-step procedure. So, there goes one of her frustrations-- great timing.

*WeChat is quite popular here in the Philippines (more than WhatsApp), I think.
