Back at DEVCON 2010, RIM announced the BBM Social Platform for BlackBerry developers. Today RIM made it available in open beta! While this wasn’t the press release I was waiting for from RIM, it is great news for developers. The new BBM SDK will allow developers to:

  • access and update fields in the user’s profile such as status, avatar and personal message;
  • create their own custom areas within the user’s profile for promoting recent application activity or storing trophies and achievements;
  • initiate and embed chats with friends;
  • initiate application-to-application background communication through BBM for sending and receiving application instructions, such as moves in a game or any other application state changes;
  • initiate file transfers;
  • the ability to share applications virally with friends in their contact list.

You can read up on the BlackBerry BBM API here or at the BlackBerry DevBlog.

    ddEven on gucci online marketing business, dishonest scheme are common. You must verify if the school or the training company is legitimate. There are websites that offer discussion boards for training programs of various specializations.You can also read the testimonials, reviews, and feedbacks of former and existing trainees. Do not just rely on the promises and statements of the faculty or the author/creator. It is best if you can get information from other disinterested parties.
