Great Wall of Apple Apps

We thought it would be fun to create a virtual wall following Apple's wall of apps at MacWorld. There are over 75,000 apps in the AppStore as of last week. I would be pretty big wall for anyone to download (probably over 300MB) by our estimate. So we broke the wall into small pieces.

The wall can be found at the Great Wall of Apple.

Click on the top right hand icon in the wall to move to the next part of the wall.

Associating a signature with a particular email account

Like us, many of you have multiple email accounts. Yes, it would be cool if we could associate a signature with a particular email account.

Unfortunately, NO Third Party application on the iPhone has the ability to select a specific email account. Whenever Signature launches your Mail Application, it ALWAYS sets the email account to the default one. We agree, this is annoying!

To select another email account when you are in the email compose screen, tap on the From: field and it will allow you to choose a different email account to use to send the email.

Why do I need to use a Web image?

There have been a lot of requests to embed images rather than use a web image. We would love to too! Here's why we had to choose web images.

There are blue borders around the hotlinks when I receive a signature

*** Bug fix included in next release ***

Some browsers will put a blue border around images. We have submitted a fix for this and it will be available automatically in the next update.

Why are my phone numbers and address in blue and underline when the recipient receives the email?

If your text in the signature has an address, looks like a url eg. or a telephone, many browsers will take the text and make it an active link. On the iPhone it means, tapping on an address brings up Google Maps and tapping on a telephone number will bring up the phone dialer. In Yahoo mail, clicking on the telephone number will ask you to add the number to your contacts.

Tool for finding your Signature images

We have just released a tool to help our users of Signature and Signature Lite to locate the URL of their image on the Internet.

(Note: URL or Uniform Resource Locator is the technical term for an Internet Web address, e.g.

We have received a number of emails from users saying that the URL they entered in Signature (Pro or Lite) for their image is incorrect. What they actually entered was the URL of the page containing the image and not the URL of image itself. e.g. the URL of the page may be and the URL of the image is actually

There are two ways to find the URL of the image.

I can't find the URL for my image in Mobile Me Gallery

The Mobile Me Gallery interface doesn't support hot-linking to its images. i.e. there is no explicit URL that will allow you to link to a specific image.

The solution is to download the image from the Mobile Me Gallery, then
upload it to a free hosting service, for example ImageBucket, Flickr etc,
which do allow direct access to images.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but there's no reliable workaround the
Mobile Me Gallery restrictions.

How do I add an image to my signature?

You need to specify a image hosted on a free image hosting site like
Flickr, ImageBucket etc.

An example would be

We wanted to use images from the photo library initially. However if we
inserted a local image in the email, most email readers like Outlook,
Thunderbird or other web-mail readers do not display it, because this has
been, and still is a big spam issue. Currently only Apple products display

In the end, we compromised by referencing an image hosted on the Internet.

(Fixed) Signature causes my Mail application to sometimes crash.

We have found an problem with image URLs that have spaces in the URL. This may cause the Mail Application to crash on iPhones running 3.0 or later. It appears that any image url in html sent to the Mail app will cause it to crash. (spaces in other html like anchors etc. does not appear to have the same issue).

Solution or Workaround is:
a) When naming your images, make sure you do not put spaces eg. "my picture.jpg" should be "mypicture.jpg", "my_picture.jpg" or "my-picture.jpg" when you upload your picture to the website that is hosting your image.

Signature updated in Apple iTunes AppStore

Today our update Signature application was approved for download by Apple. The update includes some fixes for iPhone 3.0 compatibility.

We took the opportunity to add functionality to support Facebook and LinkedIn users who have user-defined names as part of their URLs instead of just numeric ids.
