    I noticed this when visiting the forums on iPhoneMMS.net (which I've been using for the eMail 2 MMS for a while) ... then it disappeared about 5 min later.

    However the header of the one below (Web App) still exists ... dont think it ever said Web App before (why would it?)

    Just another rumour I guess but it's good to see there's people out there thinking about this..

    (p.s. anyone who's on this beta i'd love to hear from ;))

    This just looks like a Web App - so it's not really an "App," but is just Safari showing you your MMS'd pics. Meh. There are already real Apps (Flutter, Quip) that do this - you get a message to view your pic. You click on the link and Safari opens. We need a real, non-Safari-based App that will allow us to view pics over texting.

    Yeah, the web-app has been around for ages ... like a year and a half or something ... i've been using it for ages...

    My point is the forum (see screenshot) had a "iPhoneMMS Application Beta Test" line on it for about 5 mins ... with the description "Next Generation of iPhoneMMS : The Native Application" - completely separated from the "Web App" subheading which was never there before.

    Then it went away.. hence my suspicions! ... cant blame me for being hopefull

    The Developers Blog has this on it ...

    "As I’ve promised for a while a native app for iPhoneMMS is well underway. I’ve teamed up with another experienced iPhone developer to make this a reality"

    I've emailed asking if thers a beta... see what they say back - although I did this for iCall too but think that's just vapourware :( - looks cool though.

    It would be cool if apple just decided to have any incoming MMS automatically trigger Safari to open. It could be like Flutter (of even the native SMS), but instead of giving a link to click on, Safari (or another viewer) would just automatically open up and the pic. My wife has been getting a lot of mms's lately and still gets totally confused with viewmymessage.com. Why do they make it so complicated?

    Because Lord Steve said so, and we all know that Lord Steve knows what is best for all of us. We should just be grateful that he's decided to bestow his magnificence upon us in the first place. ;)

    Here's an interesting thread from that site's admin about a native MMS app. Thread is from August 2008. App apparently has been Guantanamoed.

    Interesting thing is that these people who developed the app will be making money via these mms "credits." we'll have to see how long this lasts: Apple not directly profiting from an iPhone function, or even if this takes off. My vote is for stagnation in the application line, not an outright rejection.
