BBM For iOS & Android Expected To Receive UI Makeover

BBM For iOS & Android Expected To Receive UI Makeover
Ubergizmo

bbmOne of the unique features of BBM for Windows Phone is that it has been designed with the Windows Phone UI in mind, meaning that Windows Phone users can look forward to a unique interface to call their own. BBM on iOS and Android, however, look as though they were cloned from the original app for BlackBerry handsets.

Well the good news is that it looks like both the iOS and Android version of BBM could be set to receive a makeover. This is according to the folks at N4BB who had attended the BlackBerry Security Summit. During a Q&A session, they asked BlackBerry President John Sims if the UI of BBM for iOS and Android could change in the future.

According to Sims, the answer is yes. Apparently the previous management had felt that it would be better if the app looked the same as its BlackBerry counterpart on iOS and Android. That way users would not be confused by the differing interfaces, and while it does make sense, it's safe to say that the iOS and Android versions of BBM aren't necessarily the best looking apps we've seen to date.

Unfortunately Sims did not provide a timeline as to when we might be able to expect those changes, but we guess it's still good to know that they are planning to make some changes. In the meantime any iOS and Android users excited that they might be getting a more native look with the BBM app?

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…
