All-New Version Offers Free MMS & Text Messaging and Instant FunReply
FunMobility announced today the launch of the new update for the popular application FunMail, a free visual text messaging app. FunMail enables users to send a picture message as quickly and easily as they would a plain text message. This is done through the FunMail Media Brain, a learning system which scans text messages and finds the best matching multimedia (MMS) messages.
"Everyday, Americans send over 4.5 billion text messages, but only 1% of these messages are pictures," said FunMobility CEO Adam Lavine. "This is because picture messaging is cumbersome and people are generally limited to the images on their mobile phone. FunMail changes all that, making sending fun visual messages as easy as texting."
FunMail 2.0 offers several substantial improvements over previous versions. FunMails can now be received using iPhone or Android alerts, making sending and receiving MMS messages through FunMail on these devices 100% free. Additionally, the new Instant FunReply feature enables any FunMail to be replied to from any device. This is a major improvement over version 1.0 where consumers had to often click a link to a mobile web page to reply. Finally, FunMail 2.0 supports free texting, enabling consumers to also send free texts if they wish for faster communication.
Since the launch of FunMail in November 2009, over 100,000 users have registered and have sent over 800,000 FunMails. With the new release of FunMail 2.0, users can now communicate with friends and family better and faster than ever before.
Key new features:
- Support for iPhone and Android notifications, enabling free, unlimited text and picture messaging from these devices.
- Instant FunReply, enabling any FunMail to be responded to from any device or email account.
- Faster, more responsive UI
- Support for huge address books
