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.
You need to specify a image hosted on a free image hosting site like
Flickr, ImageBucket etc.
An example would be http://farm1.static.flickr.com/15/19176774_a70c1b7351.jpg
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.
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.
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.
We've just release a compilation of 6 books by George MacDonald. It's a Free download for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.
The six stories in this volume include:
1. The Golden Key - It's found at the end of the rainbow, but what does it open?
2. Cross Purposes - The fairy queen wants a mortal or two at her court.
3. The Lost Princess - Can a princess change her spots?
4. The Shadows - They know more all about the human heart.
5. The Giant's Heart - A re-telling of a Norwegian fairy tale.
A lot of people asked us if there was any way they could try Signature for free. So we obliged. From today, you can download Signature Lite for your Apple iPhone / iPod Touch.
Signature Lite allows you to customize one signature and add one hotlink. It's the perfect choice if you only have one signature and want to add your image and details. Once you try it, we're sure you'll want to upgrade to the Pro version.

There are over 64,000 iPhone / iPod Touch applications available as of today. To buy them all, you would need a cool $149,000 USD. For your money you would own about 78% of all the apps. You would have to download the rest for free (22%). You would also own 22,000 free and paid games and if you're still bored, you'll have 6,300 books to read.
Not bad for an AppStore that just passed it's 1 Billionth download recently. Of course, even though only 22% of the apps are free, the 80/20 applies where over 80% are probably free downloads.
*** Update: this issue has been resolved in latest release ***
We have found an incompatibility running Signature under iPhone OS 3.0. If you have upgraded to OS 3.0, pressing Test Hot Link in the Edit Hot Link view may cause the application to quit. We have submitted a fix and waiting for Apple approval.
