Just wanted to give you all a quick update on the IM+ for the BlackBerry PlayBook Delay. Our friends at Shape Services has spoken out and here is what they had to say:
Shape’s Development Head Alex and myself just had a talk with Tyler Lessard, RIM’s VP, Global Alliances and Developer Relations.
Tyler was really friendly and helpful and we have now a hope that IM+ for Playbook will be approved within two weeks or so. We understand that to approve such an complex app can take the same time or more as the development of IM+ for Playbook itself. Just as remember, the app is now for two months in the testing queue.
And the best of the talk: after years of our requests to RIM we got from Tyler a promise to consider BlackBerry Push usage for IM+. It would make user experience on the BlackBerry platform the same kind of beautiful like on iOS.
Please continue to follow-up the story, it will really help to make things done. And to celebrate the moment we will offer to our friends from CrackBerry.com 25 free licenses of IM+ Pro for BlackBerry right now and 25 free licenses of IM+ for Playbook after release.
It is nice to hear that they are making progress on the application making its way to BlackBerry App World for the BlackBerry PlayBook. The Application is one of my favorites and would love to see it on the BlackBerry PlayBook!
