RIM has reportedly pulled the Kik messaging application from its App World application market. According to Venture Beat RIM did not give an explanation for pulling Kik, an app that serves as a bit of an alternative to its BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) service. Kik works across multiple platforms, including Android devices and the iPhone, and provides fast messaging with received and read message confirmations. BBM is currently a more robust application, however, and it allows for group chats with photo sharing and more. Kik is fairly new, and may add those features in the future. RIM told Venture Beat it "could not elaborate," on its decision to pull the app.source: Venture Beat
