BlackBerry Messenger is a great way to keep up with your friends, and with the new BBM Social Platform and integration with different apps you can easily meet new people that share similar interests. Tafasa has created an app for exactly this purpose. Smoothie has two different aspects, so whether you're looking for a group of people already talking, or some one-on-one time with someone new, you're sure to find it here.
The first section is Blender, in which you can start a conversation with a random person based on criteria you pre-select. You specify age, gender, location, and interests. If the person you're connected to isn't what you were looking for, Smoothie will connect you to someone else. The second part is called Coffee Shop. Here you will find group conversations on any number of topics and you can join in at the click of a button. Not finding a topic you're in to? No problem, start a conversation of your own for others to join!
Other features include:
- Built on the new BBM6 platform, giving you all the power and fun BBM has to offer
- Custom profiles with a picture, interests and a display name
- Integrates with the BlackBerry notification system so you never miss a message while in a conversation
- Add people you meet to BBM from within the application
- Meet people interested in the same things as you
- Fun and easy to use
