RIM's MySpace app blows download records away

FierceMobile reports MySpace's mobile app, customised for Research In Motion's BlackBerrys, was downloaded 400,000 times in the first seven days after release. This was a record for both MySpace and RIM.

MySpace said users of the app collectively sent and received more than 15 million messages and updated their mood and status over 2 million times in that period.

MySpace simultaneously launched a community page for BlackBerry users offering access to content, videos, games, ringtones, skins and related features.

The app will work with BlackBerry Storm users from today.
