    You have to make a huge difference between downloads and installs!

    What really counts are active installs! Google Play shows installs and 10M+ is a great number!

    The prediction is likely based on the quoted 500,000 per hour.

    I doubt it has been 500k/hour continously since launch, but it's possible.

    If they're at 10M for android downloads, they're easily past 20M total. When they announced "10M for android and iOS in the first 24 hours" - from what I understand iOS downloads were 9 million and Android was 1 million - so even if they evened out - that's still 20 million new downloads for the cross platform apps. Their existing BBM users is the ? - how many have left since they last reported BBM users? I know at the peak there were 80 million blackberry users - but it's gone down. Maybe if they kept the bleeding to 70M, then adding another 30 million through cross platform applications and having 100M total subscribers is not out of the question.

    They're at 300 million though. It's like being up 5-0 in a game and the other team scores twice.

    Another opportunity for BBM could be in cross promotion, or support of, other popular apps:

    Places like Africa, it just hit the stores recently that's why the numbers are jumping from 5-10 to 10-50 million. The numbers will keep growing and BlackBerry need to keep improving the app to show their commitment. We the addicts are doing our part in helping and forcing others in downloading, (like the one guy here here who downloaded bbm to his sons iPhone while he was sleeping). Nice one lol. BlackBerry needs to do theirs in fixing certain things that many have voiced their concerns about.

    They need to fix the iOS app. If I click a message to respond by going into my notification center or by clicking the banner to respond, the app deletes the persons message that I try to respond to.

    Thankfully they fixed the contacts bug, but this is even worse.

    And now for the sad part....

    Looking at Google Play (Canada)

    Not a mention. Gee, that's funny, considering Google couldn't care less. =)

    Had to post this tweet....lots more of these I suspect @vinceleeYYC: I downloaded it. I'm a hypocrite. #bbm

    Maybe more in the future won't admit to it to this extent but I expect a lot of closet BBM users. Ha!

    So what do you think that number is for any app? Whether it's BBM, whatsapp, candy crush or whatever....im sure a lot of downloads just happen because its the thing to do and is on the top charts but then doesn't get used.
