Today, BlackBerry pushed an update to its BBM for iPhone application (also known as BlackBerry Messenger) featuring an all-new contact-adding experience.

In addition to the obligatory bug fixes and performance improvements, BBM version 2.3.0.12 makes it easier to add new contacts by PIN, email, SMS and barcode.

Among other new features, the revamped software also permits you to search for BBM users, as well as review and accept invites from other people using the cross-platform messaging service…

Back in June, BlackBerry redesigned BBM’s sign up and friending interface while adding new emoticons and improving experience for adding new contacts by email.

BBM 2.3.0.12 changelog:

  • Add new contacts to BBM by PIN, email, SMS, and barcode
  • Review and accept invites from other BBM users
  • Find friends using BBM
  • Invite address book contacts to download BBM
  • Display your barcode and scan barcodes all in one screen

Download BBM free in the App Store.

The iPhone and iPod touch-only download needs iOS 6.0+ and comes in at 52.6MB.

        I guess amount of comments here explains itself that how many people care about BBM. I guess no one cares about it. I deleted mine couple of weeks ago. I had only two contacts in BBM compared to 200+ in whatsapp. Sorry kido, no one cares about BBM anymore, accept the fact and move on 🙂

      • Good for you. I have 50+ contacts in BBM and never again using WhatsApp after facecrook has acquired them…

      • Jacob S

        Good for you too! I hope you don’t use Facebook also 🙂

    BBM is irrelevant.

    • Kamran Mackey

      No it isn’t.
