    Hi I'm a Blackberry Passport user. What is the best Facebook messenger app (both BB or Android are fine), in your mind? I'm now using Messenger Pro from Nemory Studio. But sometimes I can't receive hub notification which is quite annoying...

    I'm still using the bundled app for messenger, I never updated to the final version in BlackBerry World that gives you a Web short cut. I believe that the BAR file is around if you want to side load it.

    Messenger lite works great for me, http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/faceboo...-apk-download/

    Hub notifications and everything, also it's an official FB app so should be well supported

    I agree. I recommend this for everyone. It runs fast and perfectly on BB10.

    If you reset and security wipe you device you should have the old native FB app back and that is the best. HUB integrated.

    Facebook 10.7.31.9 by BlackBerry. This was replaced by 10.8.31.4 which is just a web shortcut apparently.

    strangely, the Facebook 10.7.31.9 stops working after my passport updated to 10.3.3

    That native messenger app has stopped working for everyone. And not just people using 10.3.3.

    I like messenger lite but sometimes don't get notifications. I use messenger 25 apk and never miss a notification but runs so much more memory than lite.

    Hi, I agree that messenger lite doesn't always do notifications. Where can I find messenger 25 that you suggested? Is it android or bbw and then what name is it under as I've looked under both areas and could find it? Thanks in advance.

    Could be because the lite says it does not give notifications and that's why I tried the pro. It's always good to pay and support the Developer cause when we loose stuff like FB we will need alternatives. Let's hope he makes a WhatsApp alternative for us.

    He's talking about the Android Messenger Lite and not about stupid Nemory Studios app.

    I see.....my bad. I agree it's not my first choice but it does work at least most of the time lol. Been using it now for a week and it's doing the job somewhat.

    Yes. It does. But, you feel happy using the browser version of messaging in an app?

    We aren't left with many choices and I'd rather support a BB10 dev. If I'm not going to support the BB10 Dev's I may as well just get an android phone and call it a day

    does it have hub integration?

    Not the "traditional" hub integration but it does use your Hub Notifications. Also I do get sound and vibration that I set within the actual Messenger app settings. Works well. I think the best approach considering. So far only Face10 free version seems to help with some of the hub integration for FB on it's own. I haven't been able to use any other method without it being too minimal or useless. Could be just me though. It is an f***ng pain for sure. So far I can't upgrade any further Netflix, Instagram and of course FB without causing the apps to fail due to google play services etc. So sticking to the slightly older versions and ignore the messages telling me there is a newer version.

    Hope that helps
