If you use your BlackBerry for instant messaging we have some great news for you, someone over at CrackBerry has extracted the latest Torch OS, this means that people can now install the latest app versions on their OS 6.0 devices.

There are four new app versions to install, if you are accessing this article from your BlackBerry simple click on the download links to install the apps over-the-air. You can download AIM v2.5.78 here, GTalk v2.5.81 here, Yahoo! v2.5.81 here and Windows Live Messenger v2.5.81 here.

We have checked the CrackBerry forums and most people seem to be able to install these app versions without any issues as long as they are running OS 6.0. Don’t be too surprised if certain versions of OS 6 experience difficulties with some of the new apps as there are lots of builds out there, therefore it wouldn’t be a surprise if there were some compatibility issues for some.

Sadly we cannot find a changelog for these app versions, therefore the only way to see what’s new is to install them yourself. Give them a try and let us know which app you like the most and what significant changes you have noticed.
