Best Swirly users,

after having travelled on a very long journey and having put countless of hours into this project, we are now extremely happy and proud to finally have reached our goal of releasing a full-featured MMS application to the iPhone community!

This SwirlyMMS v1.0 release brings you the following features:
  • An easy-to-use user-interface, inspired by the mail application, which allows you to navigate through your received and sent multimedia messages.
  • Ability to send and receive: images, text, audio, video. In fact, you can send and receive any file you like!
  • You will be able to send and receive messages containing multiple multimedia parts. For example you can send an image together with a long text in the same message.
  • A built-in media viewer is provided so that you can easily view your messages from within SwirlyMMS.
  • You can easily reply to the sender, or forward the message.
  • You will be able to select multiple recipients.
  • You can save an multimedia message part to a file of your choice.
  • You can save an image to your camera roll (/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/100APPLE) and view it with the Photo application.
  • To send a photo, you will be able to select it, not only from your camera roll but also from your synched photo library or use the built-in file browser to pick any file.
  • Also, you will be able to take a photo with the camera from within SwirlyMMS and send it right away.
  • When composing a multimedia message with several parts, you can easily rearrange and remove any part.
  • To help you configure the application with the MMS settings, we have developed a package which handles settings delivered over-the-air!

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have downloaded and used our previous version v0.3.8 (you are about 500.000(!)) and all of our donators and swirlyspace.com forum users! And, of course, an extra big thank you goes to our brave beta testers who have given us great and valuable feedback and helped us releasing this major upgrade of our application!

As you may already know, this v1.0 release is not free. :-( But it is cheap, or a bargain as some people say :-) It costs only $8 USD, and you will be able to use a full-featured demo version in 14 days before you decide to buy. If you like it, you buy it easily with your VISA, American Express or MasterCard via a secure Paypal link.

Just add http://swirlyspace.com/SwirlySpace.xml to your source in the Installer application and you are off to swirl away MMSs. In a day or two from now, you will find this release in one of the community sources, probably in STE's repository.

As we have stated before, all of you who have donated and supported our early development efforts will have this release for "free". Just install v1.0, click the Buy button, read and accept the license agreements, click Buy, which starts the Safari Web browser. Click the '+'-sign and choose "Mail Link to this Page", which starts the email application. Together with the link, add your Paypal confirmation number to this email and then send it to: tommy@swirlyspace.com. We will take care of the rest :-) So, from now on, you must buy the application. It is not enough to donate $1...

We will continue our efforts in developing this application even further and will bring new exciting features in the forthcoming versions. Also, we will of course support the application via our forum over at http://swirlyspace.com/forum

Thanks again to all of you!

The Happy and Proud SwirlySpace Team
Tommy & Mats
