    Has anyone heard about this MMS App that supposedly was submitted to Apple months ago? I was searching for more Mobispine MMS application information and came across this page:

    Look in the comment section (post by Dave). So, apparently (at least one) MMS app was already submitted to Apple months ago and they haven't even heard back from Apple yet (for a process that usually takes a few weeks).

    Is this how Apple is getting around the bad publicity of rejecting applications (by just letting them sit in the review process forever)? The same could be said for this app, Shop Savvy, which happens to be the most popular app on the Android platform. This app, too, has been sitting in the "review process" for months.

    Just another instance of Apple cowering with their tails between their legs.

    For whatever stupid reason, they don't want MMS on the iPhone. It would have been there from the start if they did. What better way to reject an useful idea than to let it sour in the queue of apps to be reviewed??

    Yeah, then they end up just pulling their app and then apple gets to save face and avoid bad pr. I know on the surface this appears to be just another mms thread, but I just don't like what's going on here.

    ActivMMS might simply be Apple not wanting something AT&T wants to charge a higher usage fee for, who knows.

    ShopSavvy has me really stumped for the reason. It is a better version of a product already available for the iPhone, "Save Benjis". Could it be the fact that it works "better" or has more features on the G1? I know the dev. stated that the camera on the iPhone was unable to support the barcode scanning/translation.

    I'm sorry but I just don't think that's the case. If it were, I don't think Apple would have welcomed the 3G with all the extra charges that come with it.

    Apple doesn't care how much people are spending on their phone bills as long as their own products are being sold.
