    BlackBerry Messenger — BBM — is BlackBerry's proprietary messaging system that for months and months was rumored to finally break away from BlackBerry and hit other platforms. It ran in closed beta for some time on Android. BBM then leaked out shortly before it was to be officially released — and it took BlackBerry's servers down with it. That pushed back the official launch date while those problems were solved.

    When BBM finally made its official debut, it quickly gained millions and millions of users on Android. (Anyone who doesn't regularly use BBM, however, continued to lambaste the service.)

    BBM also has made its way onto iOS and Windows Phone.
