Quip's Addy Mobile iPhone App Simplifes Photo Mailing

photo mailing codes

If there's one area where Apple's developers dropped the ball with the iPhone, it was the camera. Sharing pics from your camera requires the recipient's number plus a special code for their respective cellphone  provider.

Addy Mobile eliminates little nuisances such as searching for the correct MMS code for the provider along with number of the cell phone you want to send my picture to- a process as daunting as Ralphie Parker's challenge to crack the secret code with Little Orphan Annie's Secret Decoder Ring in the movie A Christmas Story.photo received

Quip felt our pain and eliminated those annoying steps with Addy Mobile, so your friends just have to click the link they receive via text. The only negative aspect I noticed was that you couldn't send the photo to multiple contacts, but perhaps that will be addressed in the next update.

Who wants to look all of that up when you're just trying to send a funny photo? Nobody!, That's why the third request on my wishlist for the 2.2. update was: Simplify the multimedia messaging process

Steve Jobs and his worker elves at Apple were too busy to notice my request, but Quip developers was a step ahead of the field when it released Addy Mobile on Sept. 16. Sitting as the hottest item in social networking apps, Addy Mobile features free unlimited messaging that doesn't count against your text messaging plan.If you're searching for an easier, cheaper way to send your iPhone camera pics, I definitely recommend Addy Mobile by Quipp.

(4) Thoughts on Quip's Addy Mobile iPhone App Simplifes Photo Mailing

Hi Matt,

I am one of the founders of Addy Mobile, Inc which released Quip. Thanks for mentioning our iPhone app! We are continuously updating the app with additional features to make picture messaging on the iPhone more powerful and less expensive. One of the most asked for features is multiple recipients which you mentioned. It is on our roadmap for an update in the near future. Please do let us know if you have further concerns or comments.

I downloaded quip from the apps. When I select picture, go to contacts, select a contact, choose phone #, selected picture appears, click send, se up reply info appears, type in reply phone # which does not allow for spaces or brackets, touch first name or last name it does not allow for any any typing and when you press send nothing happens.

Pleas reply
