The official word from RIM re Kik Messenger


If you listen to our podcast you would have heard us talking about Kik messenger and how cool it was. Then about a week ago we learnt that RIM had pulled Kik from BlackBerry App World. To make things worse for existing Kik BlackBerry users RIM kindly disabled push which kind of spoils things a bit! It would seem now that they have have released an official statement as to why:


RIM became aware of a number of issues and customer concerns regarding the Kik app and service. Following discussions with Kik, the app was removed from BlackBerry App World on November 12. Upon further investigation, RIM concluded that Kik had breached contractual obligations. Based on the broad scope and seriousness of the issues and concerns, RIM terminated its agreements with Kik and withdrew RIM’s support for Kik’s service.

Lets hope that Kik sort out the requirements for BlackBerry and re submit the app soon. I kind of miss it.
