Now that BBM has gone cross-platform it seems as though every messaging app out there has been pushing some sort of big update to pull some of the attention away. WhatsApp is the latest, having now release version onto BlackBerry World. The change log, while small, brings some long awaited features and improvements to the mix that are sure to please users.

  • Large photo thumbnails on the chat screen.
  • Account management features: Change my number, Delete my account

The larger images and changing your number is certainly among the most wanted features and while I'm positive all the BBM users out there can think of entirely too many jokes about why the 'delete my account' feature has now been added, I'll leave that one alone and just say it's a nice addition for anyone looking to move away from the service. The update is live now in BlackBerry World.
