RIM has just updated a slew of Blackberry apps with BBM Connected Support. Along with an update to BBM itself (to include avatars, stability and more), Facebook and Twitter can now allow users to share status updates or recent tweets with friends on BBM directly from the app itself. Other updated apps include BlackBerry travel, Contacts and the App World. BBM Music was also updated, allowing you to recommend selections to friends right from the app. Though the Blackberry brand has taken a bit of a hit in recent months (both financially and in public perception), it’s nice to see the folks at RIM churning out the updates its users have been asking for.
