Some iPhone users were disappointed to find out that Apple’s latest firmware update, iPhone Firmware 2.1 released on Friday, was only to fix bugs and performance improvements.
They were hoping to see features like Copy and Paste, MMS etc that are still missing from iPhone’s rich feature list.
JuiceCaster brings some good news for these disappointed iPhone users as they have released Flutter, a free iPhone App that lets you send a picture message to any mobile number stored in your iPhone’s address book.
Flutter is an iPhone App developed by JuiceCaster.
Flutter lets you send a picture message to any mobile number in your iPhone’s address book.
In addition to this, if you have an iPhone 3G, you can also attach your location (geo-tag) to your message.
So how does Flutter work?
You need to first register which is free.
After you have logged in, you can compose a message and attach an existing picture from your iPhone’s camera roll or even take a picture from the app using iPhone’s camera.
You can then send the picture message to recipients directly from your iPhone’s address book.
Flutter doesn’t send the picture message directly from your iPhone, the iPhone app actually uploads your message to its servers and then sends an SMS to the recipient with a link to view your picture, so it can be viewed in a mobile browser. So for an iPhone user the cost of sending the picture message is nothing as Flutter is a free iPhone app and the cost of the SMS is incurred by JuiceCaster.
Flutter currently does not support the ability to receive picture messages which would have been ideal, however they have mentioned on their blog that if there’s enough demand for the feature, they will think of adding the feature in a future release.

You can download Flutter using this iTunes link.
I must admit, when I first read about Flutter over at Giga OM,
I was very excited, however it ended up in disappointment after going
through the FAQ section of the iPhone App as it’s nowhere close to the MMS
application that we have been waiting for.
However, its a nice iPhone app if you just want to send picture messages to your family and friends from your iPhone for free.
What do you think?
