BlackBerry BBM on Jolla device

BlackBerry BBM runs almost perfectly on the Jolla!

Use your favourite method to download the com.bbm.apk file from Google Play and transfer it over to your device, for example trough the browser or e-mail it to yourself. It should install and run just as you would expect on any android device.

I've just done some quick testing, but a couple of minor issues came up:
  1. Needs to be running, background service does not seem to work. I don't know if this is a limit of the runtime on the Jolla or something else.
  2. Reading of shared QRCode PINs using camera fails.

Need more proof ? Checkout this short video demonstraing chatting with a Jolla and a BlackBerry Z10.
