BBM 2.2 Coming to Android Tonight, iOS in Days, & BlackBerry 10 in "Coming Weeks"
BerryReview.com
BlackBerry is driving home their plans on growing BBM on Android and iOS with a new update to v2.2. This new update mainly simplifies the sign up process on Android and iOS by cutting down the fields it takes to get signed up to just a name, email, and password. They also make it easier to add BBM contacts through email instead of having to send an invite back. They have also thrown in 16 new emoticons for extra kicks.BlackBerry has confirmed that this update is coming to Google Play for Android tonight. It will then roll out to iOS in the coming days. BlackBerry did promise that they have a special release for BlackBerry 10 and legacy BlackBerry devices in a couple weeks with a few special bonus items. That makes sense since the simpler sign up process really only makes sense on other platforms that do not already require a BBID.Check for the latest versions at www.bbm.comUnl…

BGR: The Three Biggest Letters In Tech
Now is a good time to make sure all the data on your iPhone is backed up in the cloud. CBS Los Angeles reports that the huge iOS ransomware scam that first popped up in Australia on Tuesday has now made its way to the United States. Hackers have figured out a way to exploit the Find My iPhone feature in iOS to lock up users' iPhones and iPads and demand a ransom from them if they ever want to use their devices againContinue reading...

Apple fixes server-side iMessage bug, will fix additional bug in future software update

Image
Apple has fixed a server-side bug in iMessage, their SMS/MMS-like instant messaging service for iOS and OS X, which was causing some problems, and they're going to be fixing an additional client-side bug in a future software update. Those fixes should help make for smoother, faster transitions for people who want iMessage turned off, for example when leaving the iPhone for another smartphone. That's according to statement given to Ina Fried at Re/code:
"We recently fixed a server-side iMessage bug which was causing an issue for some users, and we have an additional bug fix in a future software update," Apple told Re/code in a statement. "For users still experiencing an issue, please contact AppleCare." The bugs seem to have been making things difficult not only for customers but for AppleCare support staff who couldn't help with de-registration on Apple's end. Once both bugs are squashed it should go back to being what it always was — customers can…

Apple’s iMessage problem is worse than we thought

Image
Apple has a lot of very unhappy former iPhone users on its hands and it doesn't look like the problem is getting fixed anytime soon. For those of you who haven't heard, there's a major bug in Apple's iMessage software that will prevent you from receiving text messages from other iPhone users if you've switched to a phone that runs on a rival operating system. The problem arises when people switch from the iPhone to Android or Windows Phone without changing their phone number — apparently, Apple keeps that number in its data base and still has it marked as belonging to an iPhone user. This means that any text messages sent through iPhones to that number get stuck in Apple's cloud and aren't pushed out to smartphones that run on a different OS.

Windows 9 Rumored For Q2-Q3 2015 Release
Ubergizmo
About a month ago, leaked information surfaced about Microsoft's next major revision to Windows, which at the moment is being referred to as Windows 9. Now thanks to additional information obtained by Myce, it seems that some of those earlier leaked features can be "confirmed", as well as some revelations about possible features that could make its way onto the platform as well.According to the information that was leaked, it seems that Windows 9 is still currently in an alpha build. It has also been suggested that the software could be released in 2015, either in the second or third quarter of the year, meaning that we still have quite a long wait ahead of us. Then again Windows 8.1 was released not too long ago, so we guess that's to be expected.As far as features are concerned, Microsoft appears to be keeping the Metro UI around. There will also be a One User Experience, Cloud Services, System protection, Validation…

This week is all about the BlackBerry 10.3 OS SDK beta that arrived for the developer community. Developers can read all about that in a technical overview post by Tim Neil. This post recaps for smartphone users what will eventually be coming in the BlackBerry 10.3 OS update. Last week was an exciting week for those following me on my BBM Channel [MichaelClewley C00014277]. I offered an advanced preview of the nearly 20 small but useful features we have planned for BlackBerry 10.3 OS. Here’s a look back at what was covered, and also answers to some of the common questions posted in the BBM Channel comments. You may have noticed the posts were broken down into some themes: New UI, Home Screen, Hub, Calendar & Remember and a catch-all Miscellaneous bucket. I’ve broken this blog post into the same themes. New UI‘Signature Action’: The action bar at the bottom of the screen has been updated for a simpler, cleaner experience. The most commonly used action is in the center of the bar …
