You may recall that we told you RIM had announced at MWC 2011 that they were opening up the BlackBerry Messenger platform for 3rd parties to use in games, apps, etc. It looks like Telmap is one of the first to integrate BBM within their app. The function within this GPS map app lets you share your and receive the location of a BBM contact. Then it gives you turn-by-turn directions to where ever it is your friend may be at.
The latest BBM 6 beta already has a location sharing feature, but it isn’t quite as nice as the current Telmap beta app. It is really great to see companies utilizing the BBM Social program, and hopefully we’ll see even more tight integration amongst games, apps, and more. It will be great when you can trash talk your friends during a two player game!
