Black naked chat apps
It may be time to say goodbye to the consumer version of Black Berry Messenger, but Black Berry's messaging platform is not quite dead yet.
A secured version of the messaging app, BBM Enterprise (Android, i OS), is also available, with less social frills and a higher focus on security and collaboration features.

Other features coming to the app will let you watch videos with other people from within Messenger.
