Android Central

Well - BBM for Android was set to hit the Google Play store at 7am EDT but we've yet to see anything but we're still hanging tight. If you're waiting as well, go ahead and join the chat below and we'll let everyone know when it goes live.

i'll put this right next to my MySpace and Nortel apps.

what is this "Myspace" you are speaking of? I found an almanac from early 2000's that shows me some info, but I can't quiet understand what it is or does.. hmmm

There's a MySpace app?

Same here! It was expected to launch at 4:30 IST. Its 5:42 now and no sign of the app!

Sent from my White Nexus 4!

Gekko says:

what do you expect from these clowns? history shows they can't make a deadline. and their company is in shambles.

I know right, Google can't even get it right, I mean it's already available for iPhone in NZ. Epic fail by $GOOG

TonyHoyle says:

Not Google. Publishing an app on the play store takes minutes and is completely automated. This is 100% on Blackberry.

Posted via Android Central App

So Google doesn't Scan, Check, verify, or do any due diligence when allowing apps?

Gekko says:

i think BB's long track record of failure, delays, and incompetence speaks for itself.

TonyHoyle says:

It's automated. A bot does scanning for Trojans etc.

Blackberry should have had this ready to go so that all they needed to do is hit publish. Many of the fake apps appeared at exactly the right time.. It's not hard to arrange.

Posted via Android Central App

Fair enough.

How many fake apps are there now?, last week it was 14, for an app that no one wants

xlDeMoNiClx says:

An app no-one wants? Wow, congrats. You just proved your ignorance and no-one should ever take you seriously again.

Posted via Android Central App

Again, I guess I could have used more sarcasm.

Is this your first day on AC?

The consensus for the last few weeks has been, No one wants BBM.

I know people want it.

Currently with 60mil users, there are 10bil messages per day, trust me, I know this app is wanted.

But it could be a server population problem right?

Luqman Ahmad says:

If it is this easy to publish app without any scrutiny then customers should think 1000 times before downloading apps from google play. They could have trojans or security exploits. Android sucks big time.

Taz89 says:

All that is done server side.. it isn't like the app store where it needs to get the yes..on the play store it is scanned and verified by things such as bouncer which literally take minutes and if it's found not to have any malicious codes then it is put into the play store.

Probably why all these fake versions made it on

Posted via Android Central App

No Google does not they scan for malware and important things, not if someone is publishing an app that can replace a stock app :P Customers own due diligence, that's why you see permissions prior to install.

Posted via Android Central App

ajonesma says:

Publishing does take minutes, but it won't show up for users for about 2-4 hours. That's just how the Play Store servers work.

TonyHoyle says:

That would be the exception.. The direct link takes seconds - bb could just tweet that. How long it takes to come up in searches varies but the max I've seem is 20 minutes or so. Depends what the Google indexer is doing at the time. Hours is possible during a very busy period I guess.

OTOH All the fake apps managed to upload in time.. Some appeared at 12:00 GMT precisely. *only* the official app had an issue.

Jerky223 says:

I learn something new everyday, I didn't know BlackBerry owned the Google Play Store.
When did they buy it? How come there was no article on it? This is huge news. I'll make sure I spread the word and credit you as my source.

For real? Since when did BlackBerry begin to control some parts android.

Bbm vs WhatsApp

perdou says:

Personally I hate whatsapp. Absolutely no privacy. As soon as the person have your phone it might be following you without you even knowing that. BBM is wayyyy better!

Posted via Android Central App

TonyHoyle says:

I simply hate whatsapp because it won't let me register.. But I'm unreasonable like that :p

beingink says:

Hate whatsapp.. I hate the fact that anyone can save ur number and watch ur profile without ur knowledge.. cough..parents..

Ancyl S says:

So is this really happening today...?

Posted via Android Central App

I wish they didn't specify a time. Then it could have come at any point today and we wouldn't have all the haters here on Android Central. Most of which have probably owned a BlackBerry at one point in time. Way to kick someone when they are down.

REally working in Indonesia,although i use leak version...bbm v.xxxx.42
in play store i still cant find it

I know someone who has the leak, and it won't send my messages to him from my Z10, just getting a red X

Aren't they gonna postpone it a year like they did to BB10? LOL, JK, if that happened they're really gonna fail.

Posted via Android Central App

If that happens then it's probably going to be too late anyway

beingink says:

If it did.. whatsapp will be so happy!!

Still no update of its unleashment?

Rockee kun says:

Exactly my point!!!

Posted via Android Central App

+1 This!

Posted via Android Central App

Just to make you aware, it's available on schedule in the iPhone in NZ, so clearly this is a Google problem.

silentjosh37 says:

How do you figure? Two completely unrelated things. Google doesn't control when a third party launches an app and notice it's only available for iPhone in new Zealand not world wide, seems like a test and it most likely killed their network hence the delay.

sk8er_tor says:

On iPhone, it is getting released at midnight for each time zone and it's been successful so far. The problem is on Android but who knows what the issue is. The APK has been leaked and works.

Adam G1 says:

Blackberry must have held the android version for some reason.

In the meantime we can mess with a fake app. :)

In the Developer Name it will say "BlackBerry", not "MalTEch" or "ViraBiz" or "EntrCrdtCrdNoHere" or "Dumbass"

Adam G1 says:

Last I checked there are already a few blackberry developer fakes. Not sure how they managed that.

Posted via Android Central App

How many ours left?

Uggghh.. I don't know. But I have been waiting since 12:00 and I have been so exited but now I'm just fed up. Funny how time can change your mood.... :)

Why all the hate? It's only an app. This is getting worse than the no gold iPhone 5s rants from yesterday! Come to think of it, the only reason people want the gold 5s is to not go over the disappointment of other people not realizing that they have the new iPhone .

TonyHoyle says:

Not really hate.. If a company announces a high profile release deadline if they fail to meet it they can expect a bit of pointing and laughing.

Posted via Android Central App

bearda says:

The company just laid off 40% of it's work force and suspended their stock. Compared to that not releasing an app on time is nothing.

It's the hype. If they never announced it what a year ago everyone would be excited when it hit. But you make people wait 10 minutes and they get bitchy

9:08 in Canada and still no bbm why can't they ever be on time

matthwo8 says:

I'm guessing the bbms under blackberry inc isn't the actual app?,there are so many "bbm" app.how do we know which is truly from blackberry

keith2k1 says:

Its not. I would think the real app would be by RIM.

jfs101 says:

They changed the company name from RIM to BlackBerry a while back.

Posted via Android Central App

It will be under "BlackBerry(2 Capital B's) Ltd" not "blackberry inc"or "Blackberry" or "blackberry" or "Black Barry"

Actually it'll be under BlackBerry Limited (2 Capital B's and a Capital L) ;)

TGoblin says:

I used to be a big BlackBerry fan and user. Day one adopter of the PlayBook and 9930. After the debacle that was the PlayBook and not having the ability to do simple tasks and after a crappy phone experience I moved to Android. Have been very happy. But i still miss BBM.

Same here, except that I went with the galaxy S2 instead of the 9900. My loyalty went the way of the dodo when they delayed the Z10.

Just shocking how many fake bbm apps are on the play store and how much download they actually have.

Jerky223 says:

Love how all the Google Fanboys are blaming BlackBerry for the issues with the Google Play Store. It's not in BlackBerry's control. I did a search for my S3 and there are so many fakes. I guess that's BlackBerry's fault as well. It's so scary to see how Google will allow any post an app knowing full well it's a fake that will steal your data. How can you defend this behavior? How can come there isn't a outrage over the lack of Quality Control in the Play Store?

Now start looking at the real issue, the Play Store is owned and controlled by Google. They allow which Android versions can have access to the Play Store because they own it and control it.

BlackBerry submitted the App to Google most likely made an agreement to release at on a certain date and time, hence the marketing behind it. Google dropped the ball on is one.

codiusprime says:

"@BBM: Thanks for your patience #Android users! Working hard to get you the real #BBM ASAP. We'll let you know when it's live. #BBM4ALL"

Yeah, Google really dropped the ball on this one /s

TonyHoyle says:

The play store is just a market. It's hosted by Google but generally they take little interest in its contents. What want on there goes on there. They might remove it later if it gets enough complaints, but they won't stop it going on.

Contrast with the iPhone store where everything there was vetted and picked by apple. If an app doesn't appear there's a reasonable chance it's apple's fault.

In this case they only reason the blackberry app wouldn't be on the Google store is because BlackBerry failed to put it there.

The fake apps should be dealt with a lot quicker than they are at the moment - it's hurting both Google's and blackberry's reputation having them there. I expect some tightening of the rules in the near future.

Posted via Android Central App

Jerky223 says:

That is a HUGE flaw in the Google Play Store. Placing your name on a "Market" and not controlling it is a liability. If BlackBerry is looking in to it, who do you think they are working with to get this issue resolved? Google. If a developer wants to publish an app the guidelines come from Google. Google should be be taking responsibility instead of washing their hands. Another reason why my Android (SGS3) has a Gmail account I don't use because I don't want my real information on an Android device. If I happen to download the wrong app and it's a fake, what a piss poor App Market. How can the hardcore Android uses stand for this and not make Google take control and responsibility?

codiusprime says:

Many people don't see it as a flaw, many people see it as a plus.

Oh. I thought I'd finally get the app that Google Babel was supposed to be.

codiusprime says:

I wish! Mainly I just want hangouts to be what Babel was supposed to be. As it stands it's less useful than Talk was.

TonyHoyle says:

Yet it requests permission to send sms and read/write permissions to your contact list. (And permission to change the wallpaper..?!)

But fails to make use of any of this.

Dear Google

Really??? I understand it's not your fault that the legitimate BBM app is not on the Play store nearly 5 hours after the promised time. However, who's to blame for the absolutely overwhelming number of fake apps that are out there. I understand that as a savvy user, I'm supposed to exercise due diligence. But can you please help us all (and your own reputation) by at least having some kind of vetting process BEFORE an app goes into a store - with YOUR name on it?

At this point, I feel that an Android won't happen until next week at the earliest. There's something wrong with the app and I wouldn't be surprised if it was intentional...

Leelin666 says:

Patience, why do it twice?

Google is deleting all the fake apps from #playstore and BB is deactivating all the leaks with viruses.. Official launch should be anytime soon. #BBM

Well, i see what looks like two more fakes that just popped up on the play store

rits2011 says:

Leaked version says "No network.." What a fail company!

sk8er_tor says:

My dog just took a shit on the carpet. It's BlackBerry's fault!

jagp3 says:

For the ones that are using the leak version! Are noticing overheating in your phones? I have galaxy s4 i9505 and the phone is getting hot as when did in the launch days. The other thing is that the battery has drained too fast! Anyone else is noticing this? Or it is just me? Apart of that! The BBM is rocking well! Even with real blackberries!

phonegeek says:

No issues here with it. Using HTC One and picked up .42 from someone over at XDA...

SecondLight2 says:

Yes it's killing my battery BIG TIME! It drains just on standby. I thought it was only an issue with my device but I'm glad I'm not the only one. I hope the official release addresses this issue. I'm on a Galaxy S4.

Louis Edward says:

Hi, I do not have any problems with the app. Nor battery draining, nor ram hog nor anything(hot). Works just fine with my i9505 S4.

SecondLight2 says:

It's not you it's happening to me as well. My phone is getting hot for no reason and the battery drains on standby. I have a GS4 GPE.

PZR18 says:

Where is this BBM app?

I want the encryption for my messages

Got a Leaked ver working fine on my galaxy..sheard on sky drive

Posted via Android Central App

Leaked version seems to be working great

Posted via Android Central App

I wonder if BB want all the fakes gone before it will publish.

As a mainly BB user, I forget Google doesn't really monitor the apps published in its store like BB and Apple do.

BB could be afraid some of these fakes will get people's BB ID's.

Shadow53007 says:

We might see the real app soon! Now when you click on most of the fake apps it says that item not found. They are finally cracking down on them!

Posted via Android Central App

The longer they wait to release the official version, the more idiots give their bbid out to these fake apps. It will come and in sure there is a perfectly legit reason for the delay. Possible a typo when they submitted it for 7pm launch instead of 7am

Posted via Android Central App

Omg major development! If I get bbm, who will chat with me 0_¤! I dont know anyone! Gasp!

Posted via Android Central App

beingink says:

All my friends gave in and downloaded the leak version and saying its working great. I am so close to giving in. I hope either BB disables the leaks so I can laugh in there faces later on.

Otherwise its not even worth it.

mixtreal says:

Oh well it seems the leaked version is no longer working.

Timbo7510 says:

The way that BlackBerry has handled this release (or lack thereof) is is a perfect example of why they're almost out of business
