Kik Messenger for BlackBerry updated to 5.2.2

Posted By Ray Nicolini

Kik Messenger, the multi-platform BBM-like application has recently received another update.

Version 5.2.2 brings several bug fixes & tweaks.

Remember Kik? The ever-popular cross-platform BBM-esque instant messenger that went very viral, very fast last year? The same one that – as quickly as it went viral – lost access to RIM API’s, thus killing its push functionality rendering it useless to BlackBerry? Yea, that app. Well, guess what? It’s back and “better than ever”. I’ve been using it off and on for over a week now, first on my BlackBerry 9900 and now on my BlackBerry 9360, and can honestly say I like the new direction they have taken with it. All the new tweaks have made it faster, cleaner and of course, more reliable.
You can click here on your phone to download the app directly to your BlackBerry, then follow the instructions above to get it going. Have fun ‘kiksters’!

IMPORTANT NOTE: RIM has not approved or endorsed Kik Messenger for installation on BlackBerry devices.
