BBM
BBM is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. BBM has unique features to protect your privacy and keep you in control:
• Retract – The ability to take back messages and photos, even after you've sent them. Retract before they've been 'R' (Read) and they'll never know! *
• Timer – The ability to set a timer so that a message or photo can only be viewed for a set amount of time before it disappears.* Glympse allows you to do the same with location!
• Private Chat – A special chat mode that disappears without a trace when you're finished.
• The BBM PIN – A way to share your contact information, without sharing your phone number or email address. This keeps you in control of who can send you messages at all times. Once blocked, they have no way of contacting you.
