iCard [rating: 4/5]
iCard created by Wondershare is a great new app that lets you create postcards with your own photos. It only take a few simple steps and you can be in touch with your friends and family at the tap of a button.
There are nine templates to choose from to start with. All range in different styles and colors. Some have pictures around them others have patterns, each one is different. Once you have the template set out you need to decide on a picture. You can take one within the app or from your library you then just insert it into the template.
There is also an option to put into the template your location and a picture of your location where you are. Great if you are thousands of miles across the world from the person you are sending it to! If you do make any errors whilst deciding on your photos you can clear the template and start again.
Once you are happy with the template and the photo then you just need to put in your text. The postcard is set out with your chosen photo at the top then any text at the bottom. You tap on the button that shows a speech bubble and write your text in the box area. You can change your font style and size as well. Within this section there is also an option to add a face with an expression. These mood faces range from scared, angry to happy or if you wish you can have none at all.
Once you have designed your postcard then you tap the send button, from there you have to decide how you want to send it. There are several choices email, twitter, facebook your library or just copy it to paste else where. Then you hit send and the person you send it to will receive a beautiful postcard personally designed by you!
The app is very easy to use, all the buttons help you along the way with the options underneath. The templates are lovely to look at, theres a great choice in colors and pictures. It would be nice as a future update to see more options for the templates, because there are only nine and it would be quite easy to use all the styles very quickly.
iCard is definitely a great app for sending personalized postcard to your special ones. We live in a world now where more and more people communicate electronically.This is another great option to consider instead of sending simple text messages via a mobile phone and one that I am sure would be greatly appreciated.
