    I read that it's going to be modern Windows Phone UI instead of BlackBerry 10 UI.

    I find it rather interesting. Is there any reason behind it?

    Probably something to do with UI standards. That, and people not using Metro appears to be a sore point.

    I remember when BlackBerry was about to be cross-platform they made such a big deal about making BBM uniform across all os, what happened to giving everybody that "BlackBerry experience"....?

    Yeah. They were thinking the BlackBerry 10 UI on BBM would attract users to actually switch to BlackBerry 10. However, that never works.

    On the other hand, I heard some BBM users on iOS actually expect a native and familiar UI. It's interesting to see if BBM on iOS or Android may change to their native look one day.

    Updating BBM with respective native UI across all platforms is the best move they could make for getting people onboard. Finally. That Windows Phone UI looks great, too.

    I love it, the UI really does fit with WP UX and isn't just a port like the iOS and Android versions. We do lag behind on features but BlackBerry has committed themselves to adding them. Here's the screenshots I promised:

    If there is anything else in the app you want me to post pictures of, just ask
