Pinch Cross Platform Messenger Service Coming to BlackBerry

Pinch With Kik Messenger running into growing pains other companies are trying to step in on their turf. The latest is Pinch which already covers Apple and Android devices. They let us know that their BlackBerry app will be available later this month with some features that other messenger apps don’t have like a leader board and prizes. They plan on also allowing users to chat from the web and Facebook which is also a nice perk.

Here are the key benefits Pinch is promoting:

  • Makes it easy to stay connected and interact with your contacts, without having to switch between applications. With Pinch you can send messages and animated emoticons, explore cities through games and competitions, and find people with an interactive pin-map powered by Google.
  • You can add friends directly from your phone contacts, Facebook, or Twitter and group them by category. Your friends, colleagues, and family can each be kept in their own easy- to-access group.
  • Never spend money on SMS again. Pinch uses your existing data plan to find and interact with friends from all around the world, without using your phone’s SMS function.
  • Pinch’s unique leaderboard adds games and friendly competition for users. Every time you use Pinch to send messages and check locations, accumulate points to win prizes, such as the iPad and other fun giveaways.

You can check out their website at: www.pinchapp.com or sign up for the private beta for BlackBerry at this link. They also put up a video explaining what Pinch is below:

  1. Oh my. After whatsapp came ping and kik.. Now a new app…

  2. i cant wait for this…kik messenger was great but lately it has been having problems that i decided to delete the app

  3. Gotta wonder how many more “cross platform” messenger apps are going to emerge before one figures out how to clobber the rest?

    And Kik is STILL not come back available for BlackBerry yet.

  4. I’ll stick with pingchat. Pingchat does everything that bbm does. File transfer/voice/photos and group chat.

  5. Pingchat is horrible. I’ve been using Cnectd. It’s pretty solid and doesn’t miss sending messages to you like Pingchat did.
