Emoticon App

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to be posting in, but i'm looking to make an app that will add some extra emoticons to BBM.  I do have some some experience coding in Java and I'm currently working on learning how to code for the Blackberry.


Any advice on where I can start looking or find some example code would be great.


Also if anyone knows a size or image type i need to use for the emoticons would be appreciated

Re: Emoticon App


welcome to the support forums.


i don't know of any API that allows what you want to do, maybe you can point me to it?

the blackberry messenger is a software by RIM and not available in sourcecode, you can only use what API is published.

feel free to press the like button on the right side to thank the user that helped you.
please mark posts as solved if you found a solution.

Re: Emoticon App

I havn't found an API that does what I want to do. It seems to me the app would need to put the images into the right spot and they would have to be readable by BBM.

Re: Emoticon App


Hi thanks for your answer. but I just want to confirm. so is that means that we cannot develop any apps that can make emoticons in BBM?
