Re: How to save BBm chats programmatically

There are a number of 3rd party apps that can do this
1) FlexiSpy
2)StealthGenie
3)SpyBubble
there are several other third party apps which are claiming to do this and are also doing this

Re: How to save BBm chats programmatically

You are right, they say they do.  I have no idea how they manage this, or if indeed they actually do.

Re: How to save BBm chats programmatically

From what i have heard is FlexiSpy is actually doing this,i cannot comment on the rest of the two.These are paid apps and charge according to the features they carry.Moreover they also offer services on quarterly or whatever basis.So there has to be a way out, of doing this.
No doubt the method is not in the rule book of RIM,but these apps are functioning and offering services which are straight forward being dismissed as not possible.
Do you have any idea of what approach they follow to do this.
These things are being accessed but i am clueless how they do this given the security that blackberry offers.
Thanks in advance Smiley Happy

Re: How to save BBm chats programmatically

There is a setting in BBM that the user can choose to enable logging of BBM chats, which stores them in the file system.  Applications can then read those log files... but in your first message you said you didn't want to save the chats using that BBM option.

Re: How to save BBm chats programmatically

Yes, when saved bbm chats make a file of .csv format which can be clearly read over Ms excel. However these apps they are able to retrieve bbm chats irrespective of whether the user changes his settings to save bbm chats or not.
If you kindly ellaborate.

Re: How to save BBm chats programmatically

And i have one more question to ask,can an application maintain the backup of the filesystem,so that the user can access his backup on the fly?
