  • more apps always welcomed :D
  • Hopefully it'll allow international texting.
  • Remember Angry Birds Space? That was supposedly "Coming Soon" too.
  • If I'm not mistaken, ABS, is suppose to come out with Lumia devices with 7.8, then fully released to all other devices afterwards.
  • Thanks WPCentral for covering Talk.To.
    As someone who is working on Talk.To and dogfooding it everyday, I can assure you that first version is coming very soon. We are just making sure it is awesome.
  • Sweet, I can't W8
  • Yet another one.
  • Always good to hear about any new app coming to our platform!
  • Too many IM services. Come on blackberry, realise the market and release BBM for all platforms! Everyone knows the name, including non techy people so everyone will download it, to make money create a premium BBM service possibly for businesses (or more features for public).
  • cool can't wait to get it and also real cool is it will have live tile and notification. IPhone and android apps are so dead and boring
  • Hey, this app has been released
