Great but I can't send with IOS 6

Makes and helps you find fun gifs but I've tried sending since my iOS 6 update and it won't send these gifs or any images, for that matter, by MMS. Someone should notify AT&T. Apparently Apple and AT&T did not work closely as they finished the update. Sad really when you consider the gazillions these two companies make in profit every year.
I can send by email but not text. It's a whole different effect.

Favorite app hands down!

I love this app so much! There are so many things that I wish to express to my fellow buds that I just don't have time to type out in a text message. But now w/ MFW I have cut that time in half! I can now freely express my deepest & truest feelings with an animated Gif! Thank you MFW, thank you!


I always thought these were pronounced jiff as in Jiff the peanut butter, I was corrected by my roommate that it's actually a hard G. Regardless, there's nothing more satisfying than sending my friends a .gif of Kobe Bryant holding up a #10 sign because they've done something swell.
