Viber Launches new BlackBerry App; Revamps iOS App
Viber has just launched its new app for BlackBerry, particularly for those who are using BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system. This could be part of the popular mobile messaging service provider’s commitment to reach and serve more mobile users worldwide.
In a statement, the company said that its new BlackBerry 10 app could be considered as an interesting twist on its current design. The new mobile app could effectively deliver updated experiences to Viber’s global users.
So what could be expected from Viber’s new BlackBerry app? To begin with, it features the revolutionary Viber Out calling function, which has primarily endeared the program to mobile users around the globe. Users could also find delight in having the service’s popular Viber Sticker Market. Viber is confident that these exclusive ways to enjoy its services would still be its primary attractions to more users.
Viber’s new BlackBerry app is also boasting of the classic features that have become synonymous to the name of the service. It still contains the one-on-one as well as group conversations, push notifications, free HD phone calls, and support for the usual Viber desktop Windows and Mac apps.
The new Viber mobile app also retains the ability for sharing photos, videos, locations, voice messages, emoticons, and stickers. Moreover, the app can be translated into 34 various languages, to the benefit of BlackBerry’s international users.
Revamped BlackBerry for iOS
Meanwhile, BlackBerry has also launched an update to its popular iPhone app. The revamped mobile app seems to be inspired by iOS 7. To begin with, it comes with the easy minimalist aesthetics that come with new features, which in turn include the ability to process and send longer video messages.
Viber 4.2 specifically for iPhone also facilitates sending of multiple photos as well as videos at the same time. The app now comes with the new ‘block list’ feature to enable users to track unwanted contacts and numbers.
The updated version of the iOS app also does a little revamp on the text messaging service. The updated app shows typing status of online users on other platforms or devices like Android tablet, Mac, Linux, PC, or Windows 8. At the same time, the revamped iOS app for Viber comes with the necessary and long awaited bug fixes to further improve its features and usefulness.
