BBM For iOS Rises To Number 2 Position On iTunes

BBM For iOS Rises To Number 2 Position On iTunesAfter what seemed like forever, BBM for iOS and Android has begun its rollout into the eager hands of iOS and Android users. In fact the app was released less than 24 hours ago but it seems that BBM for iOS has managed to climb its way up to the number 2 spot on the most popular apps in the US iTunes App Store’s Free category! Given BBM’s popularity and the number of iOS users out there who are either curious or eager to check out the app, this isn’t too surprising, and we have to wonder if given a few more hours or days, if it will be able to hit the number 1 position and maintain it.

With such popularity we can only imagine how many people have downloaded the app since its re-release, although as it stands BlackBerry has yet to reveal those numbers but we expect the Canadian company will be eager to boast those figures as soon as possible. While we have yet to get our hands on the messaging app, so far there has not been any reports of any major issues popping up, so presumably BlackBerry did a great job of patching up whatever problems that plagued the app the last time. For those who are about to download the app, you should note that there is a waiting list to help stagger the signups and prevent server overloads, but there is a workaround to that queue for those who are too impatient.

    Microsoft Remote Desktop App For Android And iOS Released

    A little over a week ago Microsoft announced that its Remote Desktop app would be coming to iOS and Android soon. Today the app has been launched for both platforms. The roll out of this app coincides with that of Windows Server 2012 R2, and the app is also available on Windows, Windows RT and OS X. As rumored, the iOS app supports both iOS 6 and iOS 7. Android users will at least need Gingerbread under the hood for this app to be compatible with their devices. What does the Microsoft Remote Desktop app do? Its simple. It lets users control their Windows PC using their smartphone or tablet.

    The apps offers a number of features, such as high quality video and sound streaming with improved compression and bandwidth usage, secure connections to all data and apps on a local machine through Network Layer Authentication technology, a connection center for management of all remote connections, a Remote Desktop Gateway that provides access to remote resources and more. Both apps are now live in the Google Play Store and App Store for Android and iOS respectively. They’re available as a free download, so that’s an added incentive to check out the app if you’re interested in remotely controlling your Windows computer.
