Is there a 'chat' app that worlds on BB and iPhone?

I'm looking for an app, like BBM, Whatsapp, Viber, that works on both devices.

 

The issue is:

WhatsApp runs on both, and the contact in the App can be put on the homescreen, so when a msg comes thru from them, a * appears on their icon.  BUT, on the 8520 it runs very very slow.

Viber runs on both, but you cannot do the above with it, and I need something that can.

BBM obviously works only on BB.

 

So any advice?

And how do I assign a contact to homescreen?

I take it, there is no means to do what I wanted above?
