BlackBerry Messenger Social Platform Public Beta Released
For BlackBerry developers Research In Motion has now made their BlackBerry Messenger Social Platform an official public beta enabling BlackBerry developers to take advantage of the popular BlackBerry Messenger service.
With the release of the BlackBerry Messenger Social Platform beta BlackBerry developers can now access and update fields such as status, personal messages and avatar in the user’s profile, gain access to API’s and features enabling the building of important functions into apps, create custom areas in the user’s profile, embed and initiate chats with friends, make file transfers and more.
BlackBerry developers will also be able to test the exact workflow and BBM integration that they can expect to see on a live device, which is accomplished via special simulators for BlackBerry OS 5.0 and BlackBerry OS 6.
Furthermore, full support for the BlackBerry WebWorks platform is planned to be added in April allowing developers to take advantage of the features found in the BlackBerry Messenger Social platform.
