BBM for iOS Updated to Add iCloud Backup of your Chats

Are you still using BBM for iOS? The app was updated today to add some new features, such as the ability to chat right away with address book contacts already using BBM, so invites are no longer required.

Also news is the ability to save your chats to iCloud, which is handy if you’re switching devices or upgrading says BlackBerry. The description also notes support for iPad–but didn’t that come previously after the app launched?
