FunMail is releasing a new iPhone app that chief executive Adam Lavine says will finally convince people to use their phones’ multimedia messaging (MMS) capabilities.
It is called FunMail, and it automatically offers up suggestions of images you should send along with your text messages.
Lavine points to a study FunMobility commissioned from Frost & Sullivan showing that only one out of every 70 mobile messages is sent using MMS (i.e., a protocol that allows the sending of media, such as photos combined with text). That’s because the amount of images users have on-hand is usually limited to images taken with their camera, so it’s rare when they’ve got a picture that functions as the perfect illustration for the text message they want to send. FunMobility, on the other hand, has a library of images, and automatically recommends one to accompany your message, making the process much easier.
