Why is BlackBerry so widely used? The reason was that BlackBerry had a chat application at the time that was only available on the smartphone. The chat application is BlackBerry Messenger (BBM).

Now the app also features a “colorful” gimmick. One of the decals. Most stickers are available for free. However, there are also paid stickers.
3. LINE, popular in Asia
LINE is one of the most popular chat applications in Asia, including Indonesia. This application can be considered as one of the pioneers of the sticker feature.
