BBMSP

How is messaging handled for BBM? There is no way to send a message in the BBMSP. IS there going to be another release with messaging added or are messages sent through some other means?

Re: BBMSP

Yeah, but you can't hold a conversation that way or do group chat. Those functionalities are in the Java version for OS5+.

Re: BBMSP

The session stuff isn't supported yet. I think it was mentioned in a webcast/session from Jam Americas in San Jose in September, but wasn't going to be ready for launch.

I also *vaguely* recall hearing something to the effect of it maybe being *removed* from the plan for now, and if that's true then I not only don't know where I heard it, but also have no idea what if anything would be planned as a replacement.

Re: BBMSP

Doesn't make much sense, but nothing we can do about it I guess. Just wondering how social of a platform/feature is it if the only thing you can do with it is invite people to download your app and places badges in their profiles?

Re: BBMSP

Various features are still in development or testing, before they get released to us. It's a simple matter of priorities. If they waited to finish all the pieces everyone wants, they wouldn't have released the phones yet.

Re: BBMSP

Yeah I get that, that was mostly directed at if they decided to scrap those features period. They were touting BBM as their flagship social app for awhile and how integrated it could become, would be a disappointment to just scrap it. I have a few apps, I've been waiting on BBM support for.

Re: BBMSP

I agree, that's a good point. My expectation is that, if it's removed, something better will be available to replace it. That's not based on anything I've read yet, I'm afraid. :smileysad:

Re: BBMSP

I'm trying to use invocation framework to catch a custom mime message or a file with extension containing message inside.

It's important to understand if the file sent throught  invocation framework can be listen from invocation manager object.
