The popular texting and VoIP calling service Viber is overhauling its app for iOS 7, bringing the operating system’s characteristic clean, flat look to its user interface as well as several new features. Viber also created a version of its app for BlackBerry’s newest operating system BlackBerry 10.

The iPhone enhancements include the ability to send multiple photos and videos at the same time, send lengthier videos and to create block lists of unwanted numbers or contacts.

The BlackBerry 10 app will support all of the core Viber features from its older BlackBerry versions, but it also adds some new services. Notably BlackBerry 10 users will be able to tap Viber Out, which lets users call outside of the app network, and Viber’s Sticker Market, which sells visual customization features that have become all the rage in Asia.

Japan’s Rakuten bought Cyprus-based Viber for $900 million in February kicking off what could become a big wave of acquisitions among the over-the-top messaging apps. Most notably Facebook is shelling out $16 billion for the global messaging leader WhatsApp.
