Have you guys checked Google Play store today? There are tons of fake BlackBerry Messenger apps there. :D


BlackBerry has delayed the launch of BBM for Android and iOS but has posted a statement that an unreleased version of the BBM for Android app was posted online and there were 1.1 million active users in the first 8 hours without even launching the official Android app! :o

Just like what happened with Rockstar's release of the iFruit app for GTA V not being released officially for android but tons of fake apps have been posted. I feel like google really needs to step up and do something to verify and approve apps with so many fake apps taking over the market and it's been going on for years now just getting progressively worse
