iPhone gets MMS picture messaging with Flutter
A long-awaited feature for the iPhone has finally been added thanks to a third-party app. No, we’re not talking about copy-paste here yet, but we’ll get there. For now, feast your eyes (and fingers) on Flutter, a free iPhone app that lets users send photos directly to their contacts the way MMS works.
Flutter, now available in the App Store, was developed by mobile social networking platform maker JuiceCaster to fill the gap Apple has been ignoring for over a year now. A lot of people apparently want picture messaging on the iPhone, although I rarely see anyone who ever uses the said feature (I seldom do so myself).
With Flutter, users can take photos with the iPhone’s camera and send them with messages to cellphone numbers in their contacts list. Geo-tagging is enabled as a bonus.
Now, that’s one missing iPhone feature down, and a few more to go. Now, how about video call support, easy tethering, built-in podcasting, and um, copy-paste, eh? No? We thought so, Apple.
