PingMe Messenger Drops Support for BlackBerry
Another company has decided to withdraw their application from BlackBerry, this time its PingMe Messenger that’s being dropped.
PingMe Messenger has decided to end of life their BlackBerry and Windows Phone application effective December 31, 2012.
So if you are using PingMe you want to look around for another alternative.
PingMe had this to say:
“We’re sad to announce that we will no longer support BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices. Starting December 31, 2012, service on both platforms will no longer be compatible with newer versions of PingMe.
After long deliberation, our team decided that it is crucial for us to focus on making our iPhone and Android apps the best they can possibly be.
It saddens us to leave you PingMe-less, but we hope you’ll understand why we had to make this tough decision. Thank you for your tremendous support and encouragement.
Sincerely, The PingMe Team”
It does seem strange for a company to drop BlackBerry ahead of BlackBerry 10 but that’s their choice I suppose.
