BBM integration issue

Hello everyone!

 

I am developing a game that requires BBM integration. I looked through BBM Social Platform documentation and couldn't find answers on some crucial questions.

 

1. Is it possible for applications to communicate with each other via BBM?

 

2. More specifically, is there a way to receive a massage that a user installed app using our invitation via BBM?

 

Thank you.

1.  Not really, an application can prepare a message for the user to send, but the user has to send it.  There is also no way for applications to read incoming messages.

 

2.  Not directly, but when you programmatically request a list of the user's BBM contacts only the ones who have your application installed are returned.  So you could use that to find if they have the app installed, there isn't a way to know if it was installed using the invite to download feature.
