Kik let us know that they have updated their cross platform messaging app for BlackBerry with some new features including:
- Improved the UI
- Made it even easier to invite others to join Kik
- Improved reliability
- Reduced battery usage
They have also completed the “Cross Platform” promise by bringing their iPhone messaging app out of beta. The app is going free for both the iPhone and BlackBerry at www.kik.com/s until June 22nd after which my guess is they will start charging for it. Should be interesting to see if there really is a market for a cross platform messenger beyond the regular IM clients like Google Talk. Kik is also promising to release Android and iPod Touch clients soon.
