We have seen recently that BlackBerry have starting rolling out Custom Pins and No ads through the BBM Store.
At the time no pricing was available but now with the latest beta for IOS we have some insight as to the pricing:
- No Ads: $0.99
- Custom PIN: $1.99
No Ads is simply that, stop BBM ads from pushing through to you. Personally the ads have not bothered me, they reasonably in-frequent at the moment.
Custom PIN will allow you to purchase a custom text PIN instead of using the standard alphanumeric PIN. I am not sure I see this as a big spinner for you and I at home but certainly seeing this working perfectly for extending your branding. So if you run a blog, newspaper or anything along those lines, I can definitely see this taking off.
Would you subscribe to either, let us known in the comments below.
