Flutter's Multimedia Messaging Service Isn't What it Appears to be

This app is not currently available in the App Store.

flutter iphoneiPhone users have wanted a multimedia messaging service — the ability to send images, audio and other media — over cell phone networks from day one.

Flutter, from Juice Wireless, at first glance seemed like it might do the trick. Flutter claims to send MMS and your geo-tagged location from your iPhone to another mobile phone.

The problem is that the recipient can only see the picture messages by going to JuiceCaster's Web site. In that sense, it's not at all MMS at all.

Consequently, it's hard to find any reason that you might use Flutter instead of email because it doesn't offer any significant advantages.

    The big question is why isn't Apple allowing real MMS to appear. Our app delivers images to others via a real, cross carrier MMS platform which compensates the carriers for each delivery. The app has been in the Apple approval process for 10 weeks now. See screen shots at http://www.hookmobile.com/iphone.
