    Having dusted off the old playbook for granny to use to access instagram to see piccys of the latest newborn, I was wondering if there were any messanger apps available that can communicate with Android/iOs devices???

    I'll take a look when I get back home.

    The obvious solution would be to set her up with a Q/Z if she has a cell phone and use bridge to send text messages.

    Don't know if anyone has successfully sideloaded the android BBM app onto the playbook, that would be an interesting experiment.

    EDIT: the summer 2016 app update page lists Kontalk Messenger as a successfully sideloaded app. It is available for android.

    Bridge only allows SMS from the PlayBook. MMS is a no-go.

    You should be able to use the PB Video Chat to connect with BB10 devices...
