Just a quick heads up for you BlackBerry users that have buddies using iPhones, iPads or iPods. You can spread the word to them that BBM for iOS has received a rather nice update bringing a host of new improvements. There's still no video chat available which is a shame, but good things come to those who wait. I just hope that wait isn't too long.
With BlackBerry Messenger recently also hitting Windows Phone it means the community is still growing - with the top four operating systems all now having access to the best instant messaging client available.
