    BlackBerry Messenger 5.0.1.38 Available for Download!

    Advertisement



    Those of us who are participants in the BlackBerry Beta Zone have been working with 5.0.1.32 for several weeks, so it was kind of a surprise to find out this evening that 5.0.1.38 has been released to the general public.

    Get it via AppWorld or from your BlackBerry browser at www.blackberry.com/messenger.

    You just have to keep trying, I guess. I'm sure the servers are getting slammed. I saw it on AppWorld when I checked last night, but was finally able to get it downloaded from blackberry.com/messenger.

    I got the link in email from a friend on Facebook (it was also posted on Twitter) and it worked immediately. I guess I caught the servers at a downtime.

    It's a good update. The location sharing is back for those that have GPS. You have to edit the permissions to allow the location sharing. It uses blackberry maps so you need to have that installed also.

    I've only notice minor changes with this update, which was disappointing...i expected new kool features.
    the new crisper look is nice, as well as the slightly bigger avatars...and it seems faster when i bbm ppl....
    other than that im not sure what this update really did for bbm

    I see a few changes. Sending pictures is great now. Try it. Location sharing, faster menus, with more options, I like it!

    Only problem so far is that it takes about 5 seconds to load my bbm group chat every time I open it. Asked my friend and he said it does the same on his end. Not life threatening, just annoying

    Last time that had a release like these, it was a short time later they did another release to fix these minor annoyances.

    Not sure if they are gonna drop another release anytime soon. Looking at all the builds and the BBM chatter in the Beta Zone, .38 will be here for awhile.

    Only thing I could forsee making RIM drop an updated version is if us Beta Zone dorks find an issue or something that could help UI or speed of BBM.

    I personally would like to wish for a revamped UI. Something to re-energize BBM users.

    Just my two cents.
