    In a hope that BBM team would read here as well and learn from such a small app from a new team.

    Hike messenger is quite new in the market, probably the same time when BBM went cross platform. It is made by a indian co.

    Below features are there in hike but not in BBM,

    - tons of smileys
    - tons of stickers
    - group chat is same as WhatsApp with sticker support
    - quite a lite app, not heavy app like BBM
    - instant delivery, unlike BBM where it sometimes take a good time deliver even on same wifi network across platforms.
    - offline message via SMS
    - chat color (changes for the other person also)
    - any attachments of 100MB size

    One thing where BBM could question them is they are using WhatsApp like tick.

    - single tick means sent
    - double tick means delivered
    - double tick with R means read - patent?

    On BBM, they are not going big with updates, and also its getting a big and heavy app.

    Plus focus is lost. Like they mentioned in next major update we will be able to use stickers on broadcast.

    Group is just so bad.

    They can quickly recover the loss of users by big updates in group at first then stickers and smileys, apart from little bugs and fixes then channels.

    Also the app size needs to reduce so much.

    Once user base is there, it can take channels to the next level.

    Agree...but not only to Android but also to iOS. Even the BBM for BB10 consumes to much mem

    I am kind of disappointed in BBM now; coming from BBOS BBM. Not as reliable.

    They have a whole sector now and still are slow with updates.

    There is so much to improve. Work seems to slowing down as well as in not priority areas.

    I guess they should be worried of groups. Unless it happens better, people won't come in large numbers.

    Also smiley, stickers needs to be very smooth and available everywhere in BBM.

    Channels is good concept but half baked.

    I am so disappointed.

    Just a nitpick, did you see how dull was the announcement of personal assistance was.

    I was recalling even how well Microsoft did it so well as a event and then it was termed as biggest feature of 8.1.

    I guess we are only playing catch up.

    JC.... come on... we need to be consistent in offering first. I know you can do it in a month or so.

    groups annoy the sh*t out of me. I get random notifications for old messages. The messages aren't sometimes in the right order they were said in.
