Hide the BBM Action Bar for More Screen Space on Android & iPhone

BBM Screen3 BBM Screen2

One of the complaints I have been getting from BBM users on Android and iPhone is that they do not have much screen space once the keyboard pops up. Sadly BlackBerry does not have a simple wizard for configuring these options at first launch but they thankfully do have a fix. If you hit the three vertical dots on the bottom right of the BBM main screen it will show you an overflow menu. From there select "Settings". You can then scroll down to "Show Action Bar with Keyboar" and turn it off. That is it and enjoy the expanded real estate on the screen. Check it out below to see the difference:
