    As you can see from my image when you send a timed message or pic, it detects if the the person has screen shot the pic! Love it!

    In my testing, that doesn't always happen. Pressing the hardware buttons to take a screenshot will trigger it, but making a copy of the timed message or picture by taking a screen recording or a software invoked screenshot isn't recognized.

    1) Does it also prevent the screen capture?

    2) Does it detect screen shots for all BBM correspondence or only timed messages?

    Bbm should really use this as a differentiator: don't just notify that a screenshot was taken, provide the sender with the option to totally block screenshots.

    There are always ways around it. One can just take a photo of it with another phone or camera.

    True, but that is a pain and most people wouldn't bother. Also, you would have to be set up for that. No one is claiming this to be totally secure, but isn't something 90% effective better than something only 40% effective? (On second thought...it may lull you into a false sense of security and the next thing you know your naked photos and tax records are floating around the net)

    Well, BlackBerry says that they don't block screenshot nor do they guarantee it'll work, they simply said that sender will be notified. Personally I have doubts in how they implement the technology, there are many, many ways to capture a screen and screenshot notification is not provided natively by either iOS or Android (and maybe Windows Phone. IDK I never mucked with Windows Phone SDK). Hell, you can always write the message on paper
