BlackBerry updates its Messenger iOS app with support for WiFi-only iPod Touch and iPads

BlackBerry has released an update for its Messenger iOS app that brings its service to iPad and iPod Touch devices. In addition, the company has also added a new feature to invite user contacts into groups by email, enabled sharing of BBM Pins and barcodes to social networks, and added a way to tell friends about the service.

First noticed by AppAdvice.com, today’s release gives users greater accessibility to the service — you don’t need to have a data plan to use it — it will work on WiFi only devices as well.

Available now for both iOS and Android devices, BlackBerry Messenger has been downloaded by more than 10 million users.
