Apple’s New ‘Cards’ App for iPhone Makes Sending Greeting Cards Simpler
One of the things that iPhones and other iOS devices have done is made it easier for people to keep in touch with each other. Now that includes beautiful, high quality note cards as well.
Once you’ve decided on the style of card you wish to send, you can add a photo by either taking one right within the app, or you can select one from your photo gallery. You then go on to change the message on both the outside and the inside of the app. There are not a lot of options for editing the design, but that may be an advantage since it keeps things simple and quick.
Lastly you add the addresses to your card, both the sender’s and the recipient’s. The placeholders are tied to your address book, so you can simply select someone from your list and their information is put in place. Or you can type it in yourself. And the address is checked against the (U.S.) postal service database to make sure it will get to where it’s going.
After that it’s simply a matter of pressing the “Buy Now” button and your beautifully made, high-quality card is on it’s way. To top it off, you’ll receive a notification on your iOS device when your card is delivered. All this quality and service comes reasonably priced. If you’re mailing it within in the U.S., it’s just $2.99 or if you’re more globally connected it will cost you $4.99 – about the cost of a regular greeting card, without requiring the trip to the store and the post office.
With creating and sending greeting cards being this simple and reasonably priced, you simply have no excuse not to keep in touch with even those less technology-connected individuals.
