    Hey everyone,

    Maybe you are aware of this but the BlackBerry 10 app Messenger for Facebook by Cello Apps is NOT FREE, it's simply a free 14 day trial.

    Nowhere in the description in BlackBerry World does it say it's a trial and needs to be paid for.

    The app is ok. Messenger for Android is much better but that's not the point. Developers shouldn't be allowed to dupe or force us into buying their app. Tell me up front that after the trial it'll cost something, ok. But you can't say it's free, then after 14 days hit me with a bill or I can't use it anymore. Sorry.

    I could just ignore it and move on, sure. It would take less mental energy to do that, but I happen to like BlackBerry and want to see them thrive. This means a great app store, great apps, and great developers. Cello Apps, in my mind is not.

    So, I would like to ask everyone who hasn't installed it, not to, and those that have to uninstall it and use another.

    Developers should get the message that they can't trick people into buying their app and those that do shouldn't be allowed to sell in BlackBerry World.

    Yeah.. I'm all for you IF the developer decide to dupe us into downloading an app that is free and later charge us after certain days of use.
    But...

    As stated in the app description. Or you might have skipped this?

    If you mean the part that says "This app contains items for sale" yeah, I saw it. But that verbiage is used for In-app purchases which is a different issue. I'm cool with In-app purchases as they are separate add on items not required to be purchased. This is not an in app purchase.

    Thanks for the support.

    What did the developer reply when you asked them to mention, in BlackBerry World, that their app is a 14 day trial?
    You did try to contact and ask them if the would, right?

    So what would I use then? Nemory's Facebook messenger? That's more garbage than this one.
