For making its stickers shop stocked up, the team is making additions to it at a fast pace, and this week itself two new addition has been made to the of stickers stock, according to a report from n4bb.
BlackBerry rolls more options to users
The users will now be able to download Disney Villains sticker pack, which has stickers of the most evil characters seen till date in the Disney shows. Apart from the villains, comical monkey character Julius by Paul Frank Industries is, also, available in the BBM Shop now. BBM charges $1.99 for downloading both of these.
The ‘emoticons’ used for messaging previously were, have recently, been replaced by stickers that are now used to express various moods in most of the messaging apps. BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) too followed suit and introduced stickers in place of emoticons. There are many other messaging apps available in the market including Viber, Line, WeChat, etc, that carry stickers helping users communicate their feelings and express their moods. Not only are these sources of considerable entertainment for the users, they also help these companies generate huge amounts of money.
It is speculated that the Disney Villains sticker pack will not be available for download in all the regions.
BBM Beta Live now
While BlackBerry has made available the Beta version of its messaging app BBM in the Windows Phone Store, it is not available for all and can only be downloaded by those, who had successfully registered for the Beta Program in advance. The company provided a small Window of 24 hours to the Windows Phone users for registering themselves to the program, and it found that there were a lot of people interested in it.
BlackBerry has been somewhat late in taking the decision of launching BBM for other platforms like Android and iOS, but it is rightly said ‘better late than never,’ and now that it has taken the corrective measure the success, soon we might see it competing on equal-footing with the giants.
