And now, in the span of these two weeks, two of my major complaints about the phone seem to have been eliminated. The first concerned TypePad’s blogging app, which I used on a friend’s phone this past April to post photos while on vacation in the BVIs. Only when I returned, did I make the unfortunate discovery that the app cropped the photos square. Yuck.
So, shortly after getting my own iPhone, I was extremely pleased to see that while the program still crops photos square, it now allows you to choose the cropping. (Ah, if only you had the ability to center images in the post too, I’d call it the perfect blogging app. A quick email suggestion to the TypePad help center revealed that this very feature is in the works, set to drop “soon.” Bonus.)
Then comes the announcement today that AT&T will (finally) allow MMS on iPhone 3G and 3GS beginning Friday. This is excellent news, since the lack of ability to directly send photos between phones was the only real drawback I saw in getting an iPhone (other than the notoriously crappy AT&T service, of course.) Even with my grainy old camera phone, I shot a lot of photos and frequently sent them to friends, including JD’s mom, who enjoyed getting fun snaps of her gal while at at work.
