KakaoTalk Cross Platform Instant Messenger Comes to BlackBerry

KakaoTalk3 KakaoTalk2

I still think that Brent Rose from Gizmodo said it best when he stated that “we need another messenger app like we need extra nipples.” Normally it would be a non event for another cross platform messenger to come to the BlackBerry OS but the latest is KakaoTalk. KakaoTalk is very popular in its native country of Korea and other locations nearby. They currently support BlackBerry, Android, and iOS with Windows Phone coming later this month. They don’t really have any standout feature and the service seems very similar to WhatsApp. Still it hits all the right notes and adds a twist by letting you get various content for adding a favorite brand, star, or media as a friend.

  1. Waaaaaay too many msgers of this nature… Ppl have like 6 msgers installed these days… In a world full of contact info is all that really needed? I mean fine a cross platform msger w/grp support may be helpful to some/need by a few…. But how often do most really use this? I’ve had a few installed in my day and used them maybe once a month IF that… Its the same ppl we have on twitter/FB on our bbm/gtalks/apple msgers on our SMS and on on our emails… Switching to the newest msger just to follow a trend is annoying and a waste of contact info space. Unless it’s revolutionary it’s just more junk filling up your phone….

  2. I agree, way too many messengers…I think they’ll eventually just give way to the FB messengers, BBM and gchat of sorts. Too many different platforms and then those that are either aren’t good, don’t have enough users, or don’t have enough of a marketing budget to promote the app. Besides, most of the time I’ll text, email or even call before I IM someone.

  3. Oh man… another messenger
