BBM for iPhone Gets Touch ID Support, In-App Subscription to Remove Ads
BBM for iPhone has been updated to support Touch ID, along with new monthly subscriptions options in the BBM Shop to remove ads or to buy a customized PIN.
If you want to remove ads shown in BBM, it will cost you $1.19 per month, while the ability to create your own custom PIN is $2.29 per month. This allows you to create a unique PIN that is 6-8 characters long that can contain numbers and letters, so you can differentiate yourself from friends. Err…so this is like being able to customize your ICQ number? 🙂
Buying into a subscription also gets you a badge on your profile picture to let people know you’re a premium user as well.

Despite the hoopla over BBM for iPhone when it first launched, sadly the app has been long deleted from my iPhone. Let us know if you’re still rocking BBM for iPhone.
